I’ve been known to knit at pubs for a long time before you could find Mountain Man beer in pubs or off licences and I’ve even knit during the quiet afternoon hours at some Craft Beer Festivals in the last year.

So this year I’m combining my two loves with some Pint n Purls at the Irish Craft Beer and Cider Festival.  Pints ‘n Purls will take place from 6 pm on Thursday, September 4th at Hall 4/ Industries Hall at the RDS [Anglesea Street entrance].

We’ll be giving away a pair of festival tickets to a lucky knitter/crocheter.  To be in with a chance to win, post a picture of your current WIP (with or without pint) and we’ll draw a name on Wednesday. To enter, post your picture to @mountainmansue #pintsnpurls on twitter or comment on this post.

P.S.  If you’ve been to the Irish Craft Beer and Cider Festival on previous years, there has been a shortage of seating but I’ve been promised that we’ll have a place to rest our pints and sit and knit on Thursday.
