Athlone brewing company Dead Centre Brewing which will soon open its doors to the Midlands public at Custume Pier, will exhibit produce at Ireland’s largest craft drinks gathering, the Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fair which returns to the Convention Centre Dublin from March 14-16.
Showcasing over 300 craft beers, spirits and ciders from Ireland’s leading drinks producers, the fair is a three-day celebration of Ireland’s craft brews industry.
Starting as a contract brand, Dead Centre Brewing, is currently building its own brewery on Custume Pier right in the heart of Athlone. Founded in 2017 by Liam Tutty, the brewery currently employs four full-time staff, with plans for further hire to reach six full-time and three part-time employees.
A visitor attraction is currently in construction, with the aim of opening their very own fully-licensed brewpub in late-February, offering the public the opportunity to enjoy their core range of beers along with tasty food offerings.
Having released a range of seasonal brews along with their core Marooned Oatmeal IPA, the brewery are currently developing a Kolsch beer and stout to add to the range. Speaking in advance of the fair, Liam Tutty, founder at Deadcentre Brewing commented, “as always, the share of market available and the number of breweries trying to take a slice is a concern - that’s why our model is so different. Our focus is on producing, packaging and pouring our own beer on site as well as entering other markets such as coffee and pizza.”
