A bespoke craft beer, brewed in East Belfast by Boundary Brewing is to be debuted at the Belfast Craft Beer Festival.

‘Wit’s Out’ named so after the common Northern Irish saying, ‘when the drink’s in, the wit’s out’, has been developed in partnership between the Sunflower and American Bars and Boundary Brewing.

Described as a classic American Style Beer with hints of coriander and lemongrass, ‘Wit’s Out’ will be served at the festival with a slice of lemon.

It is the third collaboration between the Sunflower and American Bars and local breweries, and the second collaboration between these bars and Boundary Brewing.

Boundary Brewing is a cooperative brewery, owned by its members, and is the first brewery in Northern Ireland to bring together modern US styles with more traditional French and Belgian style beers.

Pedro from the Sunflower and American Bars, commented on their latest concoction, “At the Sunflower and the American we are huge supporters of local brewing and massive fans of craft beer, hence we have been involved with the Belfast Craft Beer Festival since the beginning.

What makes the festival so special is the enthusiasm the people have for craft beer and that is why, this year, we wanted to bring them something unique, something they would only experience here in Custom House Square”.

Bruce Mansour is the founder of Belfast Craft Beer Festival, the Irish Beer Festival and the Seaport Beer Fest in Halifax. With a love for all things craft beer it is no surprise that he is exceptionally excited to taste the new arrival at the festival.

“To me, this is exactly what the Belfast Craft Beer Festival is all about, celebrating the talent of the local breweries and showcasing something new to the local craft beer enthusiasts. I most definitely will be sampling ‘Wit’s Out’ when the festival comes to town at the start of June!”
