Indie Beer Week is back in 2022

Indie Beer Week is a celebration of Independent Irish craft brewing in all corners of Ireland from 25th to 31st May.

Don't wait till May though and don't forget about it in June or beyond either - take the time to seek out beer from your local independent brewery all year round where real beer is made by real people!

During Indie Beer Week, we'll be encouraging everyone to celebrate their local independent breweries and there'll be lots of chance to shout out and big up the community as well as win prizes!!! 

PARTICPATING BREWERIES

Listed breweries here have organised dedicated Indie Beer Week Events, but there'll be lots more events and tastings going on throughout the week - check out our socials on @indieirishbeer  / #indiebeerweek
