It's a tasty drop.

Had a couple of pints of this last night. A very easy brown ale. And at only 4% very sessionable as well.

Garage Project’s new offerings from 2017.

Be hard to find a busier or more inventive brewer right now.

Backlight banana was like a wet dream, sadly GP are rarely spotted in the UK.

Current favourite is Galway Bay's Milk Stout - seriously good drop.

Pub wise, I've had Five Lamps Dublin Lager recently, and rather enjoyed it and I'm not a big lager fan. Their Libertines Pale Ale wasn't bad either.

Also if you like Irish Red Ales - Jack Smith's Red is absolutely lovely. Think it might only be available in the Boxty Restaurant in Temple Bar at the moment.

Whiplash from Kildare brew some seriously good beers. Haven't seen the full range in the UK but Rollover and Body Riddle are very good.

Quite highly, Full Irish is a damn solid IPA and a lot of their specials are superb, would have always had them in the top three alongside White Hag and Galway Bay.

Essentially they've bought them to provide the beer for the very successful Caskmates range. https://www.irishtimes.com/business/agr ... -1.3491726

Some of the best things 8 Degrees have done were in getting new Australian hop varieties and showcasing them after they got an arrangement going with some organisation down there.

Core stuff is never less that okay. They've done some spectacular specials in times past, though they've fallen back a bit in release in recent times due primarily to having to devote so much time to getting the new brewery up and running. Scott and Cam are too great lads though; went up on a private tour of the old brewery three years ago with a few mates and randomers and Scott gave us an entire 50L keg of Hurricane to drink as well as giving us shitloads of samples.

Really looking forward to giving their cans a go at some point soon.

As they tend to be! Can only imagine Full Irish in cans!

They didn't have that one but the IPL Vic Secret Ekuanot was excellent. Looks like Vic Secret are going to be in high demand given how good they are.

Had some Farmageddon New England IPA this evening. Comes in a can and rather tasty. Also had a wee can of Rascal's Swankee White IPA. Two nice beers.

I've never heard of either of those, where are they from?

Dinsdale, unfortunately everything cloudwater make is in high demand. I think they've lost their way a bit recently (and I know a few of the people involved in the brewery). Ekuanot is a fantastic hop though, the kernel equanot pale is bloody magnificent

Enjoying Young Henry's Summer Hope Ale by the carton at the moment. Cheapish (for a craft IPA) and nice.

Image

Also, fellow Australians, I no longer frequent the bottle shop - get online from https://www.boozebud.com/. The often have free delivery, so the beer above is only ~$75 a 24 can carton, compared to $20+ for 4 cans at the bottlo for most crafts.

Farmageddon are from Comber in Down and Rascals are from Dublin (formerly Rathcoole, but moved to a new site in Inchicore).

Wasn't sure where Farmadeaddon was from in County Down. I really, really like their India Export Porter. Their other IPAs are fine but didn't really draw me back to buy more.

Farmageddon used to have wild inconsistency problems, 1 in 4 bottles were infected for me for a long while. Seem to have ironed a lot of that out which is great considering their Mosaic IPA would be one of the top Northern Irish beers (though that's not saying much).

We continue to get ripped on the price of beer.

There was a Bridge Road Brewers takeover of the taps at one of my locals, Prince Alfred Hotel last night.

Beechworth Pale Ale is always a tasty drop, while I also enjoyed the punchier Bling IPA.
