Three cheers for whiskey and beers
THE Irish Beer and Whiskey Festival kicks off at the RDS this Friday with thousands set to descend on Ballsbridge to sample the best our native drinks industry has to offer.
The festival runs all weekend, including St Patrick's Day, and will feature stalls from Ireland's favourite breweries, cider makers and distilleries. Now in it's fourth year, organisers are expecting 15,000 people through the doors to soak up the festive atmosphere and live music.
Pictured are Jonathan Scott of Scotts Irish Cider, Stephen Clinch of Trouble Brewing, and Jennifer Synnott of the Dublin Cookie Company.
