CELEBRITY Chef Kevin Dundon and his Dunbrody Brewing Company team have released a stout celebrating the Wexford heroes of 1916, which is selling in SuperValu and Centra stores nationwide, as well as a growing number of independent off licenses and pubs.
Speaking about the new beer, Kevin Dundon said: 'On Thursday, April 27, 1916, the Enniscorthy brigade of the Irish Volunteers proclaimed the Republic to the good people of Wexford from the steps of the Athenaeum theatre in Enniscorthy, saying: "Ireland through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom".'
Proclamation Porter is an old-school Irish stout, such as those Wexford Volunteers would have known, he said, adding that it is brewed from native grains, with chocolate and dark crystal malts for a velvety finish, with notes of chocolate and coffee.
This is Arthurstown Brewing Company's fifth beer since first appearing on the market in September 2015 and Brew Master Kieran Bird, along with celebrity Chef Kevin Dundon, are constantly developing new and exciting recipes. The commemorative beer is available in 500ml bottles and on draught.
'This beer is our way of celebrating those brave Irish men and women who fought for our independence, especially those in the Athenaeum theatre.'
