I like the Laurel - great pool table (and Joe sees after it very well), and a good game of Don as well

First time in there I have to say, didn't even know it was there. Happy enough too, brought our glasses back to the bar when finished too so we kept in his good books.

Ah happy days in the old Franciscan Well - before it turned into a microbrewery.

Most here I reckon are of an age when they wouldn't be very familiar with the concept of a "tied house". Basically the breweries (Guinness and Murphys primarily) used to own pubs around town and would only sell their products. So in the likes of May Daly's in Saint Lukes you couldn't get Guinness or in the Market you couldn't get Murphys. One by one the practice died out and you could get pretty much the same couple of stouts, lagers, and Smithwicks (Bass in Cork was dying out too) no matter what pub you went to.

What's happening now though with the emergence of the likes of Benny is we're being subjected to the retrograde step back to tied houses again.

Fair enough if ye want to brew beer (or even distil rum or whatever) but ffs leave the punters have a choice rather than imposing a tied house (you drink here you can only drink our beer) type rule. If Medaza, or Whitegoblin, or Blarney Blonde or whatever is good enough and (more importantly imho) consistent enough, why not stock all the main beers/stouts and let the punters choose

Chain pubs will always promote their own products. The large breweries would like to force pubs to only sell their brands too. At the end of the day, the customers will decide.
