Bobby & Aaron showing Yazan & Marwan Karadsheh our micro brewery in Navan

We were delighted to be introduced to Yazan Karadsheh & his father Marwan, visiting from Jordan. it turns out they know a thing or two about beer themselves. They own Carakale brewery & are hoping to introduce a beer culture by opening the first and only micro brewery there.

Although Jordan is largely a Muslim country, drinking alcohol is not a social taboo. It is available in restaurants and hotels and certainly in the more tourist areas. Yazan graduated from the University of Colorado with an engineering degree and worked unhappily for the oil and natural gas company Haliburton. He was based in an isolated town in Wyoming and hated it there. After 6 weeks he quit and returned to Jordan, where he built his microbrewery near Amman. He named Carakale after the caracal, a native wild cat but the misspelling leans to the fine ales they will aim to produce, which are nearly impossible to find there.

Yazan & Marwan are visiting with family, trying out new beers and flavours and getting into the craic in Ireland. "We knew there was a large craft beer culture in Ireland but we didn't know it was this big! We have been touring around beautiful Ireland and are amazed at the variety and quality of the beers here. Our brewery Carakale has five beers in our master brewer's series with two flagship beers, our blonde and pale ale but we often brew single batch as well, such as our summer and red ale. It was such a pleasure to try your local BRÚ beers here and see the micro brewery. Thank you for the warm welcome."

At Carakale, Jordan's first microbrewery, they are bringing the tradition of beer back to it's roots in Mesopotamia where beer was discovered over 7 centuries ago. They aim to revolutionize the beer market in Jordan by re-introducing flavour, richness & aroma of their beers. Next time your visiting Jordan be sure to try a Carakale beer!

We at BRÚ make our own beer. 2 years ago we began the process of making our own Stout.  Yes, crazy. We have a World Champion Lager and award winning IPAs and Red Ales and a Gold Medal for our Stout.  But we won't stop until our beers are tasted and poured in the furthest shores from our home in Trim, Co. Meath Ireland.

After 3 months of negotiations, it was a pint of BRÚ Stout that finally cemented the deal that moves Alex Cordero back into a full-time role.

For the last 6 months Alex Cordero has worked in a consulting capacity helping his wife Barbara Shanahan with her business 6A.  During that time he came across BRÚ Brewery and began doing so light work. This light work increased until it became evident that Alex and BRÚ were well matched.

Alex Cordero was heavily involved with the tremendous growth of Slattery's Pub in D4 and the surrounding area known as Beggars Bush.
