Showing bottle: one man's vision crafted a revolution
A eulogy for Oliver Hughes, founder of the Porterhouse and Dingle Distillery, and arguably the progenitor of Ireland's craft beer scene. I had the pleasure of sharing a table with him at a beer tasting in Sweeney's off license a while back, and it was both educational and a good fun night. RIP
