We can’t wait.
For the third year running, Guinness X Meatopia will transform the Guinness Open Gate Brewery into a festival devoted to beer, food, fire and music.
This year, chefs and brewers are challenging one another to create unique brews and dishes to pair with each other to be available for one weekend only at the event.
The 2019 lineup is the festival’s most impressive to date. Chefs already confirmed include: David Thomas, the US chef behind downtown Baltimore’s Ida B’s Table; Dublin chef, Anna Haugh who is behind soon-to-be-opened Myrtle restaurant in London; and Malcolm Lee, head chef of Candlenut restaurant in Singapore.
Grainne O’Keefe, Will Bowlby, James Cochran will also appear along with chefs from home and away.
The Meatopia Cutting Room Stage was on fire last year and this year sees its welcome return. Festival-goers can chat with and learn from the most passionate connoisseurs from the world of beer and food.
Other highlights are set to include Chef Anna Haugh discussing the rise of modern Irish cuisine and chef David Thomas discussing the modern evolution of Soul Food.
Meanwhile, award-winning beer writer Melissa Cole will take to the stage to address the new wave of ‘driving beers,’ and how brewers are managing to pack flavour into low alcohol brews.
Guinness X Meatopia will take place at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Dublin, on Friday 5 July 2019, Saturday 6 July 2019 and Sunday 7 July 2019. Full priced tickets start at €59.50 and are on sale now.
