Some words you may hear around the brewery:

Sláinte (slahn-chə or slawn-chay) is a Gaelic word literally translating as “health” and is commonly used as a drinking toast in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. It is often used in the phrase Sláinte Mhaith (SLAWN-chay ‘va), meaning “good health”.

Fáilte (fall-chə or fall-chay) Irish word for “welcome.” This word appears in the Irish phrase céad míle fáilte (a hundred thousand welcomes) as well as the similar Scottish phrase ceud mìle fàilte and the Manx keead milley failt.

Craic (krak) Irish word for fun/enjoyment that has been brought into the English language, usually when mixed with alcohol and/or music.

Craic Agus Beoir Y’all (krak ah-guss byorr yawl) “Craic Agus Beoir” is an Irish saying that loosely translates to “great times & great beer.” “Y’all,” on the other hand, is a distinctively Texas word meaning “you all.” For instance: Y’all ‘er in fer it if y’all tump my beer over.
