We’re beyond thrilled to have scooped the inaugural Food & Beverage award at the recent Guaranteed Irish Business Awards. Leading local businesses filled The Great Room at The Shelbourne Hotel to celebrate the success and resilience of Ireland’s homegrown and multinational businesses across various sectors.

Commenting on the award, Des McSwiggan, co-founder of Hope, “We were up against some really well-established brands so it means a lot to be recognised by our peers and the ethos of Guaranteed Irish of providing quality jobs, supporting local communities and being committed to Irish provenance is something we fully believe in and support.”

“Myself, Jeanne and Wim founded the brewery and as we are from the area we are very conscious of our place in the community. When we can we want to give-back and support local clubs and initiatives, such as our involvement with Suttonians Rugby Club and Shelbourne FC. Ensuring our beers are brewed with as many Irish ingredients as possible is also important to us; for example we aim to source 90% of our grain bill from Irish suppliers.”
