PICS: Wicklow brewery launches 1916 centenary beer and we really like the name


Irish people all over the world will be marking the 1916 centenary in their own unique way and whether or not you're living in Meath or Mexico, a few drinks might be in order over this patriotic period.


To mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising Wicklow Wolf Brewing Company have released the latest in their IPA series, Children of the Revolution. Good news then for any fans of T-Rex, beer and Irish history.

“We wanted to mark, in our own way, the bravery and vision of our country men and women who made possible the Ireland we live in today,” explained Simon Lynch, co-founder of Wicklow Wolf. “Not only has Ireland seen significant cultural change in the form of religious tolerance, civil liberties and marriage equality but Ireland has also left a huge imprint on the world through its people, music and the arts. All of which came about as a result of those words read out on the steps of the GPO in 1916.”
Here's what the beer looks like.
This limited edition beer is brewed with cascade, simcoe, columbus and amarillo hops which combine to give a citrusy IPA with grapefruit, pine and passion fruit tones. It's sounds a little bit different to traditional Irish beers but we're eager to try it out.
Children of the Revolution IPA is available in O’Briens, Molloy’s and various other off-licences around Ireland and it costs €3.95.
Marc Bolan may have been born in London but after a few bottles of this IPA, you might just be singing this classic anthem.
