Five Lamps Opens Brewery At Dublin's New The Camden Venue
Five Lamps has officially opened the Five Lamps Dublin Brewery and Visitor Centre in Dublin on the first floor of Camden Street's new The Camden venue.
Guided by local experts and characters, visitors to the new brewery will hear tales of the Dublin city streets where Five Lamps was born and watch a short film entitled "A Love Letter to Dublin", which stars Imelda May, who shares what it means to be a proud Dubliner today, before the tour finishes with a beer tasting of the full Five Lamps range.
Five Lamps master brewer William Harvey will brew seasonal beers onsite and will use the brewery as his experimental kitchen to grow, develop and perfect Five Lamps beers.
The Five Lamps Brewery also features a gift shop that sells Five Lamps merchandise and Dublin-themed memorabilia.
The brewery's general manager, Ross Bissett, stated, "As 'the beer of Dublin', we are delighted to create a Five Lamps Dublin Brewery and Visitor Centre in the heart of the city. Here, in our spiritual home, visitors will experience the culture, heritage and authenticity of Five Lamps. These qualities define the essence, flavour and character of our handcrafted beers. Steeped in local history and respectfully restored, this iconic city centre location represents our defining qualities. This is an appropriate setting for us to welcome visitors and share our story, showcase our passion for handcrafted brewing and experience the authenticity of Five Lamps."
"An Exciting Prospect"
Meanwhile, Harvey commented, "It's an exciting prospect to share my love for Five Lamps and handcrafted beer, which for me has long been a vocation. Quintessentially of Dublin and experienced through such an original brewery tour, visitors will leave with a deeper understanding of Five Lamps, the ingredients beyond the barley, yeast and hops, and gain a greater appreciation for the skill, inspiration and dedication that goes into creating our beer."
