Bronaugh.jpg

National drink is the "Bronaugh", is a dark Gaelic dry stout with a relatively high alcohol percentage of 6.5%. It is often drunk on important parties and festivals, but also traditionally on the 18th. birthday of a boy, celebrating his adulthood. The drink was created by Robert Bronaugh in 1678 in his brewery. It stayed a local beer until 1837 when the Queen Emily I was told to try it out as she was visiting the town of Ballyneety just north of Shannon, And fell in love with the taste of the beer. Having brought 10 barrels back with her to Göteborg the town quickly wanted more and ever since has been loved by the Blechingian people.
