Nothing says summer like an ice-cold craft beer, cider, or seltzer. And so, we’ve pulled together a few of our thirst-quenching favourites to enjoy as the days start to warm up and our thirst goes up, too! Be sure to fire up the barbeque, relax in a lawn chair, and let these brews work their magic. Enjoy!


1. Johnny Fall Down Early Apples Cider

Let’s not forget cider, a must for the warm weather! This medium-dry cider is bittersweet on the palate with lots of green and tropical fruit notes with a gorgeous buttery finish. Early Apples refers to the early ripening, rare varieties of apples in the Killahora/Johnny Fall Down Cork orchards. Very refreshing!

ABV: 5.5% | €4.85


2. Killowen Dark Mojito 

A light, easy-drinking, tropical seltzer from the team at Killowen Distillery in Co. Down. Dark Rum, lime and sparkling water have been used to create this spritz. Best of all, this seltzer is 100% vegan and only 70 calories per can! The rum is crafted from the finest sugar and black strap molasses and distilled before being aged in a variety of oak casks. It is then muddled with natural lime and mint to create a beautiful, refreshing, and balanced drink with a distinctive flavour of wild mint, lime zest, and tropical rum notes.

ABV: 5% | €4.70

3. Blacks Ace of Haze Battle of the Tropics

Joining the Ace of Haze family is the Ace of Haze Battle of the Tropics! This Double Dry Hopped Hazy IPA is bursting full of tropical fruit notes, in particular mango and pineapple along with some citrus fruit flavours. Boasts an extremely smooth finish with low bitterness which keeps you coming back sip after sip.

ABV: 5.5% | €3.60

4. Hopfully No Cars

Who needs a fruity margarita when you can have this brew instead? This deliciously fruity gose from Hopfully Brewing Co has been brewed using pink Himalayan sea salt, coriander, lime juice, cherries, and peaches. The perfect balance of fruit and tart. Now that’s what we call a thirst-quencher!

6. Whiplash Alma

A bright and citrussy Witbier release with added lemon zest from Whiplash. This Belgian-inspired brew boasts bright fresh lemon peel, tangerine, white wine, limes, white pepper, and a hint of clove dominate the initial aroma. The flavour is airy, silky, fluffy, gently sweet, and reassuringly citrus forward.

ABV: 5% | €4.90

7. Killowen Blackberry Bramble Seltzer

All natural, 100% vegan, and only 70 calories per can. This refreshing blackberry and gin seltzer has been distilled carefully from native botanicals in the Mourne Mountains of Co. Down.

10. Boon Kriek

A sublime brew for any summer's day! Boon Kriek is a unique, spontaneous fermentation beer prepared from aged and un-aged Lambic aged in oak barrels. This deep red brew gets its colour from the 250g of Galicia cherries added per litre. The creamy cherry, red wine flavour is very smooth, with sweetness up-front, whilst the aftertaste is slightly tart and very dry. Very creamy and very pleasing on the palate.
