O’Hara’s Knockan-Swappin’ at KnockanStockan


O’Hara’s Brewery, Ireland’s leading independent craft brewery, is the official drinks sponsor of this year’s KnockanStockan Festival which takes place in Co. Wicklow this weekend (22nd – 24th July), and the team at O’Hara’s Irish Craft Beers plan to keep the performers and crowds in attendance happy by serving up refreshing Irish craft beer and cider throughout the whole weekend, both on draught and for the first time ever in cans!

To celebrate the launch of the new cans, festival-goers will also have the opportunity to take advantage of ‘O’Hara’s Knockan-Swappin’. Each day the first 50 festival goers to present themselves at the O’Hara’s Can Station will have the option of exchanging up to four cans of their own warm beer for four cans of chilled and refreshing Irish craft beer.

As well as having a wide range of O’Hara’s Irish Craft Beers available on draught at the festival, punters can save themselves the bother of hauling cans from the carpark into the festival, as O’Hara’s will sell cases of 24 cans of O’Hara’s Irish Pale Ale, O’Hara’s ‘Opsession and Falling Apple Cider on site on Friday for €60 at the O’Hara’s Can Station.

What’s on offer?

O’Hara’s contemporary style Irish Pale Ale is the brewery’s most successful brew to date, and now craft beer lovers can enjoy this award-winning zesty and refreshingly bitter IPA, along with the brewery’s recently launched ‘Opsession, which is a Session IPA from a can!

Falling Apple Cider is the first Irish craft cider to be canned. The medium gravity cider is produced from 100% Irish apples, and delivers a fine balance of sweet, dry and bitter flavours.

O’Hara’s will be serving a wide range of their beers on draught at three different bars. The line-up includes O’Hara’s Irish Stout, Irish Pale Ale, Irish Lager, Notorious (Red IPA), Freebird (White IPA) and Falling Apple Cider.

As in previous years, KnockanStockan remains a BYOB festival with a free flow system in operation between campsite and arenas so punters can bring their drink wherever they like.


All O’Hara’s draught beers and Falling Apple Cider are priced at €5.00 per pint.
Cans of O’Hara’s IPA, ‘Opsession and Falling Apple Cider will cost;

  • €4.00 per can
  • 3 cans for €10.00
  • 24 cans for €60 (Friday only)
