Failte to their beer

Slainte to their tradition

With new Irish tweaks

Rain, sleet, hail and snow

No wonder they like the pint

A thing of comfort


Like flowers of spring

Breweries keep on sprouting

In Ireland's green land


Can be slow to change

The tastes of an old nation

Slowly but surely


In the beery foam

Swirl Celtic mists of bygone time

Quenching memories


Ireland's small brewers

Build a foundation of craft

Solid and growing


Dark stouts and Red Ales

Pales, Porters, Lagers all brewed with

Irish malt and hops
