Ger Buckley, Cooperage Demo. Jameson Caskmates and Chieftain IPA Franciscan Well Entrance Ger Buckley, Master Cooper Jameson.

Since 2014 the Franciscan Well & Jameson have been the best of ‘Mates’ ! Join the Franciscan Well Brewpub and a team of experts in cooperage, beer, whiskey & pizza in their award winning beer-garden for a once off experience, not to be missed. What to expect? Lots of charred and roasted flavours! Enjoy a beer on arrival where the Franciscan Well beer expert, Paudie Scully, will talk you through the different flavour profiles in beer and share the Franciscan Well story. Next up will be none-other than Ger Buckley, Master Cooper at Midleton Distillery. Ger will show the importance of cooperage and barrels in the production and maturation of Irish Whiskey with a dramatic demo of how coopering takes place including charring of the barrel! They will also be joined by Liam O’Connel, Jameson brand ambassador, who will lead a tasting and talk on Croopers Croze, Jameson Black Barrel & Caskmates (along with a Shandon Stout pairing) and finally to top it all off, the famous Pompeii pizza will be doing a special menu on the night from their wood fired oven, where you will be sampling pizzas which will be created as a once off, to enhance the flavour profile of the drinks on the night. This event is part of Taste the Island.
