The Roguey Pale Ale, inspired by the famous bracing Roguey Walk which hugs the coastline of Bundoran in south west Donegal, captures the refreshment you feel as you stroll this stunning headland with its breathtaking views of Donegal Bay on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Brendan O’Reilly of Donegal Brewing Company in Ballyshannon, brewers of the Roguey Pale Ale, said ‘we’ve been working with Discover Bundoran for the past number of months on a beer that is unique to the town and that we could launch as part of the new Bia Bundoran Food & Drink festival. We’re delighted to have come up with a pale ale named after one of the most famous walks in the county. It will be available as a limited edition for the weekend of Bia Bundoran in various outlets across Bundoran in bottle and on tap.’
Organiser of Bia Bundoran, Tourism Officer Shane Smyth added ‘we are absolutely thrilled to have a new Bundoran beer exclusive to the festival – one that will celebrate the uniqueness of the locality and of course the warm welcome that awaits you here! I’d like to thank Brendan and the team at Donegal Brewing Company for their cooperation in making this happen. There’s lots of different food and drink related events across the weekend and we’re delighted that so many of the food trade in town have come on board for the very first Bia Bundoran.”
Events begin on Friday afternoon, September 20th and run through until Sunday 22nd. Many of the food outlets in Bundoran will be offering special deals and discounts on dishes – with some created especially for the festival.
