BrewDog launched their Black Heart Stout at BrewDog Cork.

Black Heart Stout launched in Cork

Scottish craft brewer BrewDog has been in Cork since last summer and recently it launched its newest offering here on Leeside.

Cork is home to a number of famous stouts and the latest is Black Heart Stout which BrewDog launched at its Cork bar on Washington Street last Thursday.

BrewDog Cork welcomed Corkonians to celebrate the launch of the stout, three weeks before St Patrick’s Day.

Black Heart is described as 'no nonsense, Irish style, classic stout, brewed in this century that gives stout drinkers a bold new choice. Chocolate and extra dark crystal malts give layers of roasted, toasted coffee and cocoa, with a hint of caramel, teaching an old dog, new tricks’.

On the night, guests were treated to tasters of the stout, as well as the full offerings of the Cork venue, which opened in summer 2022.

BrewDog’s Global Beer Trainer Paddy Gardiner was on hand to deliver beer schools, a guided beer tasting of BrewDog’s favourite beers, and the Cork crew served up some of the great food offerings available on site.

Speaking about the launch, Paddy Gardiner, BrewDog, said: “We’re so excited to launch our brand-new stout Black Heart in BrewDog Cork. We know that Leesiders are big stout drinkers, and we wanted to share something different. This is a beer for everyone, but especially those people who might think stout is only for drinking on St Patrick’s Day. We’ve spent a long-time perfecting this – and we reckon you just might think it’s better.”

Fraser Sim, Group Operations Manager for BrewDog Cork said: “BrewDog Cork have been eagerly waiting to serve Black Heart Stout. Like everything BrewDog does, it’s a fresh and innovative take on beer. We strive to give our customers the best in variety and have 30 draught taps featuring plenty of the best craft beer from brewers in Ireland, and beyond. Black Heart Stout is an excellent addition to our offering.”
