24 Sep Happy People at Happy Days
We had a right jolly good Saturday at the weekend gone by. It was our first Happy Days Beer & Food festival! Weather? Not too bad, we got lucky. Beer? It flowed all day and we sold out of the special guest beers really quickly. Food? Burgers, tacos, pizzas and sweet churros. Every box ticked! Events? Each one filled out completely. Tunes? Something for everyone.
There were people ready for action when we opened at midday. The early bird catches the worm! We had perfect weather for sitting outside.
The Loft was just as busy with all the tasting events being hosted by Judith and Susan Boyle. Each event was filled out within a couple of hours and it’s easy to see why! Some excellent beers on hand to pair with everything from cheese to chocolate.
The Loft turned out to be a popular spot to chill out for a few hours, enjoy the fine craft beer and take in the surroundings of Rascals brewery.
Entertainment included the legendary Lex Woo and Dublin Bluegrass Collective.
And as for the food… let’s just say nobody went hungry!
So here’s to next year! Already there’s been talk of making it a two-day event. Ah lads. Let us get over this one first!
Thanks to all the Rascals crew for playing a blinder, to all who came to our first festival, and to everyone who gave up their time to help us on the day, in particular Ziz O’Beirne, Shane Dempsey and Cathal’s friend Neil. Also a big thanks to Jess from Soundhire in Ranelagh who’s a man you can depend on when you need problems solved.
