So the observant among you will have noticed that there is no Athlone Beer Club on the last Friday of August. The main reason for that is the Irish Craft Beer Festival in the RDS which kicks off today. Sean Kelly had the inspired idea of Indian food and beer. Athlone’s new Hot Spicy Grill has a byob policy so he is going to pick out 3 or 4 beers from O’Brien’s that will go well with spicy grub. Who likes the sound of that? It will be next Friday, the 4th of September at 9pm. ( cheers Wayne!) There will be an event created on the Facebook so let us know if you’re going. Sean is looking forward to hosting the meet up. Sláinte!
