On April 19th, Brewery Corner in Kilkenny, Ireland celebrated its first birthday. Their first year was an eventful one, capped off by winning the illustrious title of Craft Beer Bar of the Year at the 2013 Bar of the Year Awards.
Managing Brewery Corner and overseeing the bar’s large selection of Irish craft brews on draught and bottled beers from around the world is Stephen Foster, a veteran bartender with a true passion for beer.
What is the atmosphere like on an average night at Brewery Corner?
The atmosphere here is very relaxed most of the week. Kilkenny is a small town with a lot of pubs (something like 85). So no single bar will be overly packed on a school night. We’ve got lots of different groups in on different nights, however. Sunday is board game night, Tuesday is Drink & Draw, Thursday is ArtSocial night. It’s all about people with common interests hanging out. Friday and Saturday nights can get a bit hectic and there’s always a cheerful buzz about the place.
