To celebrate the summer solstice, which falls between 20 and 22 June, they’ve put together an elegant set menu that will be presented in the atmospheric surroundings of the newly operational #MauritiustoMitchelstown brewery.

Five courses have been carefully designed by Galty Valley’s Mary, based around producers like Ballinwillan House, The Apple Farm, Hanley’s Butchers, Kildinan Farm, Gubbeen Smokehouse, Crowe’s Farm and Macroom Buffalo Farm.

They will talk you through each course, paired with one of their beers, each carefully chosen to enhance the other.

It promises to be a wonderful night of beer, food and company.
