ICB Beer of the Year 2009
Congratulations to Aidan and Ronan at Galway Hooker on being awarded ICB Beer of the Year 2009.
From the Irish Craft Brewers website:
“Galway Hooker has featured in the ICB awards since their inception in 2007. This year it returns to its place as Ireland’s supreme champion, as voted by the drinkers. Members of Irish Craft Brewer recognise not only the superbly balanced flavour of Galway Hooker, and the incredible consistency with which it has been brewed by Aidan Murphy over the last four years, but also the steadfast work put in by Aidan and Ronan in distributing their beer across the country. There’s no point in making a high quality ale if no-one is able to drink it, and the 2009 Beer of the Year Award, voted on by members all around Ireland and beyond, is almost as much a recognition of the hard work that goes into getting Galway Hooker to the drinkers as it is to the excellent beer itself.”
