THE Treaty City Brewery Festive Fair will take place this Friday December 3 and next Friday December 10 from 4pm-9pm at Treaty City Brewery 24/25 Nicholas Street, and outdoors at the Widow’s Alms located just across the road from the brewery.

The fair will exclusively feature local independent traders, and will bring some of the city’s best artists, craft-makers and food producers to the Medieval Quarter. Visitors will be able to buy artisan Christmas gifts while taking in the festive vibes with live music from 4pm, grabbing a winter tipple and a bite to eat. 

The stalls will showcase an array of goods, including food, homewares, prints, clothes and jewellery from local traders such as Pressed Flowers by Nell, Prints by Grace Coakley, Small Cuts, Gealach Candles, Elle’s Sketchbook, Solas Cinealta, Mary Stack, and Basgaru.

The Treaty City Brewery stall will have an assortment of gift packs, hampers and canned craft beers, including a new limited release collaboration with Eleven 14 Coffee Roasters. 

Anyone in the mood for a festive drink will be able to choose from the finest of Treaty City beers, brewed right on site, and Signature Mulled Thomond Red Ale.
