This week we once again turn our tastebuds towards Ireland, with the latest installment of our Irish craft scene coverage.

We try Bru Brewery’s Rua along with Wayne & Janice from the Irish Beer Snob.

Unable to separate them we award two winners in this week’s #prizelessprize which can be seen here & here.
