When it comes to match day, there’s a plethora of places to enjoy a pre-kick off pint or sink a few whilst watching the whole match if you didn’t get tickets or it’s an away fixture. Just take a stroll through Cardiff’s ‘Craft Beer Quarter’ and you’ll be spoiled for choice with venues to enjoy the rugby. But this year there’s a new place you can catch the match; The Printhaus.
On March 21, when our lads take on the Italians, The Printhaus is the only place you’ll want to be for two reasons; beer and pizza.
The event sees the coming together of two of the capital’s newbies with regards to breweries and pop-ups as Canton based Crafty Devil team up with Dusty Knuckle for a day of live music, rugby, craft ale and pizza pies.
“Its going to be a day of all the good things!” explained Rhys Watkins, the brewery’s co-founder. “Beer, 6 nations rugby, pizza and music,” he continued.
“We wanted to work with Dusty Knuckle to give it an Italian feel as Wales are playing Italy and the idea is that we will have a big screen for all three games being played with beer and pizza served all day and finish it off with some local bands,” he added and his enthusiasm is mirrored by their pizza counterparts.
“We are pretty chuffed to have partnered up with the Crafty Devil guys ahead of our first Beer/Pizza festival,” said Deborah Noyes of Dusty Knuckle. “We have been looking for an excuse to work closely with Crafty Devil and this seemed like the perfect way to do it. International Rugby, craft beer and wood fired pizza – what could be better?
“We plan to have our favourites on the menu such as the spicy Nduja, the Smoked Salmon & Horseradish, the Lahmacun, along with a few others that we are currently experimenting with,” she continued.
Although the lineup of the bands isn’t yet confirmed, the team sheet of beers is and joining Crafty Devil’s regulars, they’ll be a 6 Nations Red IPA that is yet unnamed.
