Heineken Ireland has announced the launch of its next limited edition Wild Lager, Wild Lager Himalayas, which is now available in select Dublin bars.
Wild Lager Himalayas (H32) is a lager with fresh hints of citrus and a full malt character and is the second limited edition Wild Lager released in Ireland, following the success of Wild Lager Patagonia (H41), which was released in Dublin last year.
To celebrate the launch of Wild Lager Himalayas, Heineken Ireland partnered with one of Ireland’s most exciting and dynamic chefs, Michelin Star winner JP McMahon, to create The Wild Lager Menu – a four dish tasting menu inspired by each lager’s country of origin.
The menu, created using wild and foraged Irish produce and ingredients, can be enjoyed during events across Ireland this summer, including The Galway Arts Festival and The Big Grill in Dublin.
To accompany Wild Lager Himalayas, JP made monkfish with asparagus and woodroof, as well as goat’s curd with nettles and dandelion oil.
To pair with Wild Lager Patagonia, JP created a rib-eye steak with wild garlic pesto and roasted hazelnuts dish, as well as mouth-watering wild Irish mussels from Galway Bay with dillisk.
Speaking about the partnership, JP McMahon commented: “Wild Lager by Heineken® is a totally new beer style with unique flavours that pair perfectly with the wild flavours of real Irish produce.”
He added: “Creating The Wild Lager Menu was a journey of discovery, a culinary adventure of sorts; I’m looking forward to sharing the dishes and both Wild Lagers with the Irish public throughout the summer. It’s going to be wild.”
