We have two pieces of exciting news today from Raglan Road Irish Pub!
The authentic Irish Pub, located in Downtown Disney (soon to be Disney Springs) is celebrating their Tenth Anniversary throughout all of 2015. And they’ve got some good stuffs coming up.
The Great Irish Hooley — Featuring Limited Edition Craft Beers and Free Master Class Beer Tastings
We told you about The Fourth Annual Great Irish Hooley recently, which takes place over Labor Day Weekend, September 4-7. The “Boutique Irish Festival” offers a holiday weekend packed with authentic Irish music and entertainment.
But we’re also looking forward to the beer! Rye River Brewing Company, located in Co. Kildare, Ireland, has brewed up four limited-edition Irish Craft Beers just for the event: a Raglan Road Saison, a citrusy Raglan Road Fruit Salad Weiss Beer, a refreshing McGargles Jims CO2 Stout and a McGargles Francis Tropical American IPA.
But here’s the really great news — Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, you can participate in Master classes with one of the brewmasters from Rye River. You’ll learn about the company’s history, the brewing process, and about different styles of beer.
“But what does it MEAN, Corky??” Well — it means free beer, ’cause you’ll get to taste the brews as well.
Classes are 45 minutes long and will take place outside of Raglan Road (weather permitting). They are first-come, first-served, and will be available at 1:00PM and 5:00PM Saturday through Monday.
Seasonal Menu Featuring Wild Ocean Seafood Launches at Raglan Road
On a recent visit to Orlando, Chef Kevin visited Wild Ocean Local Seafood in Port Canaveral, Florida. The retail fish market and restaurant are a family-owned, fourth generation businesses. Chef Kevin liked what he saw, and Raglan Road is now featuring some of Wild Ocean’s most popular items on their menu.
From the “It’s All For Me!” Appetizer Menu, guests can try Whiskey in a Jar. This cold salad of Wild Ocean Citrus Poached Shrimp is served with Cucumbers, Watercress, and a Marie Rose Sauce (similar to a creamy cocktail sauce) spiked with Whiskey.
Guests looking to share a starter might try the El Niño. This dish pairs Wild Ocean pan roasted Shrimp with a Bean, Sweet Onion, and Pepper Piperada. The dish is served on a bed of Soft Polenta.
Finally, guests looking to make a full meal out of Wild Ocean seafood can opt for The Pale, which combines Wild Ocean Shrimp and Clams with Corn on the Cob and Baby Potatoes in a broth laced with Raglan IPA, Lemon, and Herbs. Soda Bread Scones are served alongside.
As of today, there’s no specific end date for the special Wild Ocean items, but they’re definitely seasonal in nature. So hurry in to try them soon while you can! Better yet, try ’em all at the Hooley!
Lots of exciting stuff happening at Raglan Road! Let us know in comments what you’re most excited about — The Hooley, the Beer, or the Local Seafood — or all three!
