Stuck for that perfect gift this season, well here at The Dark Star Brewery Shop we have you covered.

We have plenty of gift ideas including vouchers, beer gift packs, t-shirts, merchandise, glassware, wines, guest beers from near and far and of course our very own Dark Star beer, available on draught from the humble 2 pint right up to our 35 pint Polypin.

We kindly ask that you pre-order prior to collection using the Click & Collect service or pop by anytime we are open, social distancing measures are currently still in place meaning we can only have a maximum of four people in the shop at any one time. 

Our 5 Litre Mini Kegs have a 2-week best before from collection or shippment date then 3-5 days once opened.
