This Thursday May 25th to Sunday May 28th sees the return of the ‘South Main Ale Trail’ to Wexford; a showcase of the very best in Local and Irish Craft Beer, Cider and Spirits and runs alongside the ‘Wexford Food & Wine Festival’. Featuring a programme spanning three venues, Simon Lambert & Sons, The Sky & The Ground and Bugler Doyles, visitors will be treated to a wide range of entertainment, tasting sessions, food and opportunities to meet with brewers, distillers and other craft beer enthusiasts.

Simon Lambert & Sons, home of Wexford’s YellowBelly Beer, return with brand new limited edition beers pouring over the weekend as well as an outdoor festival bar, which is the perfect place to share a beer with their brewery team and ask some questions about getting started in brewing. Live music on Sunday, with great Irish beer, spirit infusions, beer cocktails and entertainment throughout the weekend.
