I thought it was a great night and my non-beer afficionado cousins really enjoyed it too. There was a great vibe about the place the music was great and a really nice selection of beers. Can't agree about the Tokyo* thought it was way too sweet.

I'd definitely go again. Enjoyed it a lot. Tasted lots of nice beers.

Schneiderweiss stuff might have been my favourite. Not sure.

No, Board Bia moved it to the bloom festival earlier in the summer, but the organisers of the festival have nothing to do with bloom

The breweries decided to hold their own September festival instead. It was at the Curragh last weekend.

Thanks guys. Great to have a beer festival in the Curragh but whats wrong with one in Dublin? I decided not to go to Oktoberfest this year for 2 reasons a) Septemberfest; b) no money... i'll have to start saving for next years Oktoberfest!

Where would you have it?

It's all very well when Bord Bia and the OPW can give you Farmleigh for a couple of days, but for the breweries to rent a licensed venue in Dublin would drive the overheads sky high. You'd get the obligatory its-too-expensive thread on here.

They did well to get the Curragh on board for Thorough Brew.

@BeerNut: Its true it would be expensive, if I had a choice I'd say St. Annes park - i know it would never happen. What happened with Farmleigh? Anybody know? It was a grand venue - nice long walk to and from it = clear head by the time you're back in the big smoke => less trouble caused!

Well that kinda answers "what's wrong with one in Dublin".

I hope some day to organise something like this, but getting a venue in a practical location for a workable price is the firt, seemingly insurmountable, problem.

Probably a budgetary thing. As obvious mentioned, they took the decision to combine Septemberfest with Bloom.
