Intoxicating Liquor (Breweries and Distilleries) Bill 2016: Second Stage [Private Members] (23 Mar 2017)

Joan Burton: I join others in thanking Deputy Kelly for his initiative in bringing forward the Bill. There is a wide level of agreement in the House today. Unlike other Bills which have come before the House and have been agreed, but have then gone into the equivalent of a legislative deep-freeze, I ask that Minister of State, Deputy Stanton, use his good offices to ensure that this legislation is...

Intoxicating Liquor (Breweries and Distilleries) Bill 2016: Second Stage [Private Members] (23 Mar 2017)

Noel Rock: I thank the Ceann Comhairle for affording me a little bit of time to speak on this Bill. First, I welcome the various brewers who are here in the Gallery today, some of whom I got to meet thanks to a talk Deputy Kelly organised to inform Members of the House on this important Bill. I will open by paying tribute to one of the first pioneers of craft brewing in Ireland, a gentleman called...

David Stanton: I have listened carefully to all the points made by Deputy Kelly and others during this debate and as I sat here I was thinking about the town of Cobh in my own constituency, to be parochial, which is to be visited by 67 cruise liners this year. There were 136,000 visitors to the Jameson Experience in Midleton last year. That number will increase again in the current year. The whole...

Intoxicating Liquor (Breweries and Distilleries) Bill 2016: Second Stage [Private Members] (23 Mar 2017)

James Lawless: My party will be supporting the Bill and I am delighted to do so also. The legislation is pro-enterprise and favours small local businesses. Like Deputy Lahart, I wish to acknowledge the foresight of the former Taoiseach and Uachtarán of Fianna Fáil, Brian Cowen, who in 2005, when he was Minister for Finance, included the microbrewery tax credit in the Finance Bill. It goes to...

He has passed on his apologies for his...

We went on a tour of the history of the Jameson distillery to find out how its products are made and to go to a...

Intoxicating Liquor (Breweries and Distilleries) Bill 2016: Second Stage [Private Members] (23 Mar 2017)

Stephen Donnelly: Unlike vineyard owners and wine producers in France, craft brewers and distillers in Ireland are not allowed to sell their products on site. This Bill allows for the sale of the product on site, which is great news, because the craft brewing industry in Ireland is going from strength to strength and shows little sign of slowing down. Turnover has increased a staggering 11-fold between 2011...

Intoxicating Liquor (Breweries and Distilleries) Bill 2016: Second Stage [Private Members] (23 Mar 2017)

John Lahart: With my colleagues, I support the Bill and thank Deputy Alan Kelly for introducing it. There was an interesting article in The Irish Timestwo years ago.

It looked as far back as 1996, when the outlook for the discerning beer drinker, as described in the article, was...
