Divining The Future

The key to running a successful business is being able to plan for the future. With this in mind, I have been formulating a series of complex algorithms and inputted every variable imaginable in order to be able to plot out exactly what the future holds for us at Wood Key Brewing, and was able […]

A Matter of Perspective

It’s apparently summer here in Ireland. At least that’s what the calendar tells me. Like most, I’d hoped for a nice sunny summer with evenings spent having a cool beer out in the garden, surrounded by friends. But it’s too wet outside and I don’t have any friends. And the beer is tepid (the fridge […]

Sparkling Piss Thoughts

So recently enough the lovely people of Facts Ireland invited me into their studios and proceeded to feed me some utterly awful beers in the name of entertainment. I was given some of the staples of the beer market both in Ireland and stateside; the list included Bud Light, Miller, Dutch Gold, Coors light and […]

Movie of the Week 06/06/16

TG4 really is one of my favourite channels. Not only do they occasionally show blockbuster movies with Irish dubbing with English subtitles so I can pretend I’m learning, but they also show old Westerns old the time. And this Friday they’re showing one of the best: Rio Bravo. Howard Hawks directs John Wayne as John […]

Movie Of The Week – 23/05/16

As part of our ongoing plan of world domination, we at Wood Key are slowly lulling you all into a false sense of security. I won’t go into the details, and probably shouldn’t mention the plan. But my backspace key isn’t working, so we’ll just move on. We all like having something to look forward […]

The First Time

It was my birthday this week, so I’ve been a bit chipper than usual. I celebrated the usual way, by drinking beer and watching Leonardo DiCaprio being mauled by a bear. It was an odd documentary and would put you right off camping. I’ll be continuing the celebration this weekend by watching Captain America in the […]

How to gain followers and influence people

This week we smashed through the 1000 Twitter followers barrier. Then we hovered there for a little bit.  And then we went back down to 999 followers.  Fame is a fickle mistress, it seems.  Still, it was a nice little morale boost for the few hours that it lasted. We will, of course, track down […]

Our website is launched!

Yes, we finally got our act together and put up a website. Now you can find the latest Wood Key news, a list of our beers and where you can buy them. And we’ll probably use this blog thing to write nonsense that you can read in work while your boss isn’t looking. What more […]
