In other news, the Beoir website has been launched at long last. For those that have not heard of it, Beoir is a beer consumer group for Ireland that was born from Irishcraftbrewer.com which has been integrated in to the new site.
The difference is that while ICB was just a website that was seen as official, Beoir is actually an official group with elected officials and mandate etc.
Think of Beoir as Ireland's version of CAMRA except that we promote good beer, usually of the microbrew kind and not just beer conditioned and served in a particular way but for the most part we are of the same mind as most CAMRA members.
We hope to work alongside CAMRA and the EBCU in promoting Irish Craft Beer as well as World Craft beer.
Beoir is simply the Irish word for Beer.
