Now on, and it's Gooooooood


We have just been told that some of this wonderful Dark Ruby Ale will be with us in the next few days. Watch this space.

Hobgoblin 4.8% abv

The Unofficial Beer of Halloween.

Traditionally brewed to produce a wonderfully well balanced blend of smooth, rich & satisfying flavours from chocolate & crystal malts combined with a crisp, refreshing bitterness from Styrian, Goldings and Fuggles hops.

Bigfoot Barley Wine 9.6% Abv

What would you do if you saw a sign that read "Glass of beer €4.50" ?
Would you

a) ask to speak to the management
b) realise that those Specsavers adverts might be making sense
c) join the queue

The correct answer of course, is "c"
This beer is ridiculously hard to come by, and to have it on draught is all the more special.

Druids Brew Irish Stout

4.5% Abv
As rare as hens teeth is this stuff. The first Cask of this sold in Ireland for quite a long time (by ourselves) lasted less than 3 hours, such is the quality and lack of availability.

(there are no pictures because none exist, or do they)

8 Degrees Howling Gale Ale

A very apt name for an Irish beer. Cam (the brewer) will be delivering some during the week, so watch this space for more info.

Like blitzing down the Ballyhouras on your bike with an icy wind in your face, it delivers a refreshing crisp smack around the gills. It pours a pale golden colour and the malty sweetness is well balanced by the chinook and centennial hops. Goes well with fish, chicken or anything off the barbeque. ABV 5.0%

Fruh Kolsch

On from Monday 6th June, hopefully to coincide with the return of double digit teperatures.

Followed by this bad boy
As this is 9.7% Abv, you will need to
- produce a certificate of sanity
 - sign a waver relieving us of responsibity for you
- obtain a small mortgage
