Glasgow will get the chance to taste some of Donegal’s finest beers on St Patrick’s Day.

Kinnegar Brewing, a huge supporter of Earagail Arts Festival (and the arts, in general), will be guest of honour at ‘WEST on the Green’ this Sunday, March 17 for the St Patrick’s Day Tap Takeover.

The Home of WEST Beer, ‘Glaswegian Heart. German Head’, Kinnegar will take over the Courtyard in the beautiful Templeton Building to showcase their beer, which is all brewed right here in Letterkenny.

A spokesperson for WEST said: “We first met Kinnegar at the end of last year, when we went to check out their canning line. We instantly clicked and had to get planning a reciprocal visit – making sure you were all invited too!

“With so many Donegal natives embedded in the fabric of Glasgow, Kinnegar should feel completely at home on Glaswegian turf!”

The world celebrates Ireland

Beer from Letterkenny will be pouring through many, many taps this weekend as Ireland is celebrated in Italy, France, the Netherlands, Russia and England, while the Kinnegar team look forward to visiting Scotland to pour their Irish-made beers.

“Amidst all this celebration Kinnegar is particularly delighted to be guest of honour at west on the Green in Glasgow.

“Six beers from Letterkenny are being accompanied by five humans from the brewery — all making the trip so familiar to so, so many people from Donegal.”

The Kinnegar line-up for Sunday includes favourites such as Scraggy Bay (5.3% IPA), Rustbucket (5.1% Rye Ale) and Yannaroddy (4.8% Porter), as well as Big Bunny (6% East Coast IPA), Black Bucket (6.5% Black Rye IPA) and Olan’s Tart (5% Apple Sour) All will be available on draught as well as a few in bottles and cans, too!

The St Patrick’s Day celebrations with Kinnegar at WEST on the Green kick off at 12noon, Templeton Building, Glasgow Green, G40 1AW Glasgow.

The event is family-friendly and entry is FREE, however organisers ask that you bring along a donation to Glasgow NE food-bank on the day. #GlaswegianHeart
