Sligo Rovers can today announce the upcoming release of The Showgrounds – a new beer produced in conjunction with The White Hag Brewery that will generate funds for the Bit O’ Red.

The project will see €1 donated to Sligo Rovers from every pint purchased thanks to a unique agreement between the club, White Hag and publicans in County Sligo.

The beer is a traditional helles lager, similar in style to a modern lager.

A total of 13 pubs will sell The Showgrounds – named after the home of Sligo Rovers.

The White Hag is an award-winning craft brewery from Sligo and they believe the Bit O’ Red are brewing something special under Liam Buckley.

Based in Ballymote, The White Hag have grown considerably since launch five years ago and now employ 10 people in a rapidly expanding local business, exporting to eight markets from their South Sligo base.

The agreement between White Hag and publicans will see Rovers profit €1 from each pint. The cost of a pint is €4.70.

The Showgrounds beer was brewed and packaged specially in recent days for release this Friday in the following bars:

  • Caheny’s
  • Mooney’s
  • O’Neill’s
  • Foley’s
  • Earley’s
  • Connolly’s
  • The Swagman 
  • Lillie’s 
  • The Crozon Inn 
  • The Snug 
  • The Dunes, Strandhill
  • Owenmore Inn, Collooney
  • Salley Gardens, Ballisodare

Sligo Rovers chairman Martin Heraghty said: “The club hope our supporters buy into this unique fundraising venture and support a product which we think you will thoroughly enjoy. It is something aimed at older fans of the club during the summer. The money generated will be put towards ground works.

“The White Hag are a popular local business who are very keen to maintain their connection with Sligo. Their business is a great strength for the community of Ballymote and indeed County Sligo.

“We’d like to thank White Hag as we build our new partnership and hope this is a huge success.”

Bob Coggins of The White Hag said: “As a pillar of the Sligo sporting and cultural community, the Bit O’ Red are an icon for us and we’re thrilled to be able to create a product that we can turn into a fundraising campaign for The Showgrounds.

“This initiative allows the wider Sligo community to show their support the club by sampling our collaboration, and seeing some of their hard earned cash going straight to the Rovers development fund.

“The lager is a very accessible style that any beer drinker will appreciate. We’re producing the beer at a cost to allow for the maximum fundraising possible for a very worthwhile cause that’s brilliant for Sligo. We hope everyone gets a chance to enjoy it.”

An excellent idea, awful name and logo though. It does make a difference!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

The correct answer is 'yer Ma' but I'll allow it.

Great idea. We have a local brewery in tallaght that does lovely beer (Priory Brewing) which is also a social enterprise.  You can get their IPA Original Sin in the Maldron if going to a rovers match in tallaght, its fecking lovely and packs a punch. 
Be great if they did some sort of link up where part of the money was going directly into the club / league

I think one of the bars in Dalymount serves a beer you can only get there as well - can't remember the name of it though, maybe all the bars serve it.

Five lamps is C&C so not quite a small local enterprise! Better than your Heineken or Diageo supplied stuff still mind.

Pats have a good relationship with Rascals brewery as well.

5 lamps is gone from Dalymount since the off season. It was replaced by Temple lager (porterhouse) 

Bohemian Red is decent (also porterhouse)

Showgrounds Lager?  Would that be the one that's a little bitter?

Its inspired by Sligo.  It leaves a horrible aftertaste.
