{When in Galway} Galway Hooker Beer

Galway Hooker Bottle, Irish Food, Galway Hooker Beer,

When we moved home to Galway almost five years ago  …. we could not find a beer that we loved. When in Rome – right?

Ah….. no.

Yes – there was Guinness and plenty of it. The best pints we have ever had – especially if you go here when you are in Galway. (I insist you go here when you are in Galway).

But sometimes, on a Friday night, a girl just wants a cold beer from the fridge. We were not finding, and definitely not falling in love with, anything …. but gawd knows we were trying.

All that water and not a drop to drink. I know … Beer snobs. Call us what we are.

We were conditioned to drinking, and pined for, good old fashioned American brews like Samuel Adams or Boont Amber Ale or any of the hefty selections from Rogue beers. Aside from the schwag American beers (Coors Lite/miller/Bud lite etc) nabbing a US microbrew beer came at a painful price; We grew thirsty.

Then one day … Peter came to the rescue. Try this beer sez he. You will pine for Sam Adams no more.

Sceptical …. we tried ONE bottle. Then we went back to his shop for a whole case.

Guys and dolls …. this Galway Hooker beer … is ‘da bomb’.

Summer … might be just around the corner.

Are you all stocked up?

You can buy it in a load of locations all over the island now … but especially by the case … right here.

AND … if that is not enough to convince you … this is an Irish business … two Irish lads, first cousins, who are incredibly skilled at their craft of beer making and customer service.

They deserve your business … and their beer is damn good.

The kids are on a two week Easter break … starting today — I might not come up for air for a while … so pop in and say hello if you are in the neighbourhood next weekend for the Galway Food Festival.

Those are all the WiseWords I have for today,

  • Enjoy your Easter break with the kiddies and be sure to have plenty of that Galway Hooker stored in the fridge…more in the cold room if you have one.

    Good thing you added the word Beer in your blog title. God knows who would have come to visit. LOL

    • Thanks Paula xx
      I am heading away this morning to the Waterford Writers Weekend down the south
      of the country with my Mum. So the chef is at home babysitting the kiddies …
      And there was a bar here in Galway called The Galway Hooker … It’s no longer operational …
      it was hard convinicing folks it wasn’t a brothel!

  • Colorado might be known for Coors but beyond that giant we are also a state with a ton of micro brewpubs. I’ve never been much of a beer drinker and I’m finding out why…none of what I had was much good! I’ll be right over!

    • Ah … Colorado has the most amazing microbreweries … We are heading stateside next Spring …
      I think we might pop in for a beer xx The Chef and I met at a brewery .. Our love for beer is rooted deep :0)

  • I’m always on the look-out for a new Irish beer, Mona. I’ve been eyeing this one up for a while as I mostly drink ale. Really must give it a go!

    • Do June – It is just a gorgeous beer. Thanks for the visit to the blog x
