Meet the Makers – VIP Experience

This cultural ultralux experience is a must for those interested in the arts of smoking and brewing.

Birgitta will bring you to a behind-the-scenes visit of the Smokehouse itself. Learn how we smoke the Irish Organic and Wild Salmon. Look into the bespoke kiln and the smoke box. Peter will tell you the fascinating story of how he captured the wild yeast in the Burren for the ‘Euphoria’ gruit beer. A Burren Smoked Irish Organic Salmon tasting platter is served with a tasting of four of the Burren Brewery unique craft beers.

This is an opportunity to immerse yourself into the heart of a story by meeting the people personally involved with the history of this destination.

Special requests for out-of-hours visits can be accommodated.
