Do you provide Brewery Tours?
Unfortunately we are unable to facilitate brewery tours as the Murphy’s Brewery is a fully functioning brewery.
There are however plans to showcase the Corks brewing tradition, which includes Murphy’s, of course, in the Visitor Center in Cork City. This is due to be complete in 2017/18.
White ball in my can of Murphy’s
The white object you found in your can of Murphy’s is called a ‘widget’ and this has been purposely placed in each can of Murphy’s during production. The widget contains the nitrogen gas required to create the draught flow effect when the cans are opened.
It is present in order to facilitate the production of a ‘head’ for stouts that are poured from a can. In other words it gives the stout its creamy white head when the can is opened.This widget is found in all draught cans of stout e.g. Murphy’s, Beamish, and Guinness.
Can you sponsor my Team/Event?
Murphy’s has a long history of supporting sporting development in Cork. At present our sponsorship budget is used to support the Cork Senior GAA Teams, both hurling & Football.
We will continue to support the Cork GAA Teams and unfortunately are unable to provide sponsorship of teams or events outside of this.
