Apparently some "connoisseurs" found "Blasket Blonde" to be absolutely delightful.

These same connoisseurs would usually describe Fosters as pisswater.

Even though Blasket Blonde was merely Fosters rebranded.


Any back kitchen beer thought up by some publican who wants to capitalise on the government exemption on excise duty for small batches will most likely be shite.

Read somewhere that during the cholera outbreak that brewery workers didn't get it as they were drinking beer instead of water from the infected well.
That said they were also drinking up to 8 pints a day at work so must have been fucked either way. Mad thinking about it.

The current IPA fascination thing puzzles me, I don’t like the stuff at all no matter where it was brewed or what it’s called

I like trying new beers like the rest but Ipa can be very heavy. Isn't there science to show that the Irish population and especially the west are pre disposed to coeliac and crohn's based off our relatively short exposure to wheat diet pre famine?

If true can't imagine wheat beers suit a lot of our rectums.
