Silver success for Ballykilcavan Brewery at prestigious awards

first_img WhatsApp By LaoisToday Reporter – 21st March 2019 Pinterest It was a winning weekend for Ballykilcavan, as the Stradbally based-brewery bagged six medals in the 2019 Dublin Craft Beer Cup.The competition is part of the Alltech craft beer festival that takes place every year in the Convention Centre in Dublin and the beers are judged by a panel of trained brewers and beer sommeliers.The Ballykilcavan team of founder David Walsh-Kemmis, head brewer Nigel Oakes and innovation brewer Joe O’Driscoll was thrilled with the result.Reacting to the medals, David said “It’s a great result for us and I’m really proud of our brewing team.  Nigel has set up our new brewery and produced all these beers in it, and Joe has come up with some amazing recipes that really wowed the judges.“We got a medal for each of the four beers in our core range and also picked up two medals for ourseasonal specials including a silver for our new juicy pale ale.“It’s a great reward for all the hard work, and very pleasing to get positive industry feedback.”After the celebrations, it was straight back to work once the teamarrived back at the brewery.  David explained “We’re getting set up for our first tours on the May bank holiday weekend, so we have a digger in cleaning out the old farmyard behind the brewery.“After 230 years of farming in it, there’s a thick layer of mud on it, so we’re scraping it back to the original ground level and tidying it up before we welcome our first tours in a couple of months.“We’re also hoping to get this year’s barley crop planted over the next few days which we’ll use to make next year’s beer.”Ballykilcavan Brewing Company is based at Ballykilcavan farm, near Stradbally.  The farm has been in the owners’ family for 13 generations since 1639 and the brewery is located in a 230-year-old grain store in the original stone farmyard.All the barley and all the water used in the brewery is sourced from the farm, and the company has also planted two small hop gardens next to the brewery.SEE ALSO – Brewery doors to open as Ballykilcavan set to welcome first tours TAGSBallykilcavan BreweryDavid Walsh-Kemmis WhatsApp Twitter Facebook Facebook GAA Pinterestcenter_img 2020 U-15 ‘B’ glory for Ballyroan-Abbey following six point win over Killeshin GAA Silver success for Ballykilcavan Brewery at prestigious awards GAA Previous articleFuneral details announced for former Knockbeg student and teacher following sad passingNext articleScoil Chriost Rí bow out of All-Ireland junior championship LaoisToday Reporter Here are all of Wednesday’s Laois GAA results RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Kelly and Farrell lead the way as St Joseph’s claim 2020 U-15 glory Twitterlast_img read more

Brand new Lenexa City Center Library set to open June 2. Here’s a sneak peek at the facility

Brand new Lenexa City Center Library set to open June 2. Here’s a sneak peek at the facility

first_imgLenexa City Center Library branch managing staff are, from left: Kristen Holdman-Ross, Alison Schwartz, Ken Werne and Jackie Suptic.The new Lenexa City Center Library is opening this week, and Johnson County Library staff are gearing up for a grand opening to celebrate. The new library at 8778 Penrose Lane, just across from Lenexa City Hall and the Public Market will be open to the public June 2.Christopher Leitch, community relations coordinator, said construction costs came in under the $21.1 million budget. The library took about 18 months to build and was completed ahead of schedule, he added.“When you look at what our region is investing in new libraries — Mid-Continent Public Library and Kansas City Public Library and Johnson County Library — it’s really phenomenal to see so many communities investing in institutions like ours that serve all equally with no direct cost,” Leitch said.The 40,000 square foot facility occupies two floors at the Lenexa City Center campus, with ground-floor entry on both levels. On the top level, patrons can access the parking garage and drive-through library services.Johnson County Library closed its Lackman branch in March and moved materials and staff to the new branch at Lenexa City Center. The new facility more than doubles the Lackman branch in square footage and staff.Children’s reading areaThe Lenexa City Center Library offers 30,000 books for children, 27,000 books for adults, 2,600 books for teens, 3,000 audio CDs for adults, 2,500 music CDs and 5,900 DVDs. Materials are located on two large floors with open concept and ample natural lighting.Leitch said Johnson County Library recognized several years ago that the Lackman branch would not be able to meet the needs of a growing population in Lenexa and the region. That’s why the library decided to build Monticello Library in western Shawnee and is working to update all libraries over the next several years.“Within five years, there will be 15,000 people in walking distance of this library,” Leitch said. “The growth of the community in terms of business opportunities, housing, made this a reasonable and logical place where we would locate a library, and we continue to serve our existing Lenexa patrons, and we can serve these new patrons who are going to be moving into the area.”The atrium features a variety of seating and mosaics by Stephen T. JohnsonIn addition to regular library services and public Wi-Fi access, the new library features:6 meeting/study rooms, including a 36-person meeting room, with wireless A/V and conversational seating20 public computer workstationsDedicated space for storytime and other children’s programmingDedicated gathering space and workstations for teensA variety of seating and workstations as well as multiple charging areasA holds lobby that will be open from 5 a.m. to 10 pm. 365 days a yearAn atrium for guest speakers and eventsBalcony seating with device powerThe Lenexa City Center parking garage accommodates 500, is free to use and features a covered walkway to the library entrance.Grand opening activitiesActivities set for the day of the grand opening include tours of the new building, a viewing of award-winning children’s book illustrator Stephen T. Johnson’s public artwork on site (three 25-foot mosaics in the atrium), a ribbon cutting at 1 p.m., remarks from public officials and a recitation of a work from the emerita Poet Laureate of Kansas, Wyatt Townley.The exterior drive-through services are in the Lenexa City Center parking garage.Additional parking and a free shuttle are available at the Kiewit office building at 8900 Renner Blvd. All of the surface parking lot spaces are free to use.
