Don’t be discouraged - I think Dublin is a splendid idea with an evolving scene, so it is a great place to visit first time or return to. And flight prices into Dublin are usually reasonable

Second home Dave ?

Beer the primary reason was it ?

Cravens I imagine and not the smokers variety

Dublin? Has much changed the last couple of years or is it still PorterHouse, Messrs Maguire and Bull & Castle only?

Er, there may have been an element of steam heat and superchargers involved

From Gazza’s gen there’s quite a few ’free houses’ now, between them serving just about every Irish brewery...

The scene’s certainly evolved in Dublin over the past three years - one particular set of bars run by The Cottage Group (owners of Galway Bay Brewery) have been leading the way. Their three pubs in the city (Against The Grain, Brew Dock, and Black Sheep) all have 20+ taps of local and international craft as well as fairly extensive bottle lists. Plus, a couple of others have really embraced the high quality gastropub vibe with decently kept cask ales, artisan local produce etc - L. Mulligan Grocer and W.J. Kavanagh are the best of the bunch.

That said, I’d still describe the scene as highly conservative with fecking caramalt overloaded red ales still very much in vogue. Hopefully someone will have some balls and chuck some hops into a brew kettle sometime soon!

Would certainly recommend the Dublin beer scene as a destination for a cheap one-nighter city break (I’ll happily show any of you lovely folks around!), but I’d say that a three day show may get slightly repetitive...unless you really really love caramalt - you’d have a bloody blast.

That’s the whole point of Irish Red Ale, isn’t it?

Remember that it’s three days where one is entirely dedicated to the grand tasting, with beers that people brought along. And if we have a little time to chat and drink full pints one of the days, it wouldn’t hurt anybody...
