Carakale Brewers visit BRÚ House

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!
