We’ll never be the same again, Ratheniska has changed us all, utterly. Well maybe that’s a slight exaggeration but it’s close. 280,000 people in 3 days are too many for anyone except the wonder that are the NPA and Anna Marie McHugh.
We shared a stand with 7 other Kilkenny food producers under the #TasteKilkenny banner. It was great fun, meeting all 280,000 people and chatting about Costellos and our brewing plans. One thing I certainly took away from it was the interest and willingness of farmers to get involved further in the brewing industry and start growing hops, once it’s viable of course.
So we went home with a good few more friends and intensified energy for to start growing hops in Kilkenny again.
