Star attraction at the Irish Craft Beer Festival 

I would like to think knitters were the star attraction at this year’s Irish Craft Beer Festival last Thursday evening.

For the past three years, Phil & Sue  from Mountain Man Brewing Co.have found a unique way to  bring knitters and craft beer enthusiasts to this annual event by hosting the one and truly Irish Pints n Purls event in Ireland.

A picnic table draped with a bright and cheerful crocheted themed table cloth

 is perfectly situated directly across from Phil…

as Sue knitworks with knitters who have brought their wips and sips from their beer glasses.

This year, Sue organised two prize sponsors, Dublin Dye and Stolen Stitches. What a great opportunity for a chance to win such amazing prizes.

I am always amused by the passerbys and the curious who admired and  commented on the colourful and thin yarn we were knitting with, it’s almost star-like quality attention.

Sláinte…
