So brewdogs bar takes the lead with 30 taps. But I've seen more interesting selections. They let you take away at a bit over half the price, which is nice.

Could be out but worth a call. If you are really stuck maybe try some of the GBB pubs and see if they have any at bar prices.

Turns out reasonably priced is 13.50.
This plus a super fresh Cantillon Fou' Foune.

I rang McHughs about 200 fathoms, no dice.

Was it for a present? O'Haras and Franciscan Well have barrel aged stouts that could be a good substitute.

The Czech craft beer scene is small but top notch.
Had some really balanced IPAs, and am currently tucking into a (Jingle) Bell's Expedition Stout.

All craft beer cans (330 and 500) are 2.50€ in a place here for the last 4 days of 2016. Not bad.

that's really good.

found a really good offie nearby the last few months. Redmonds of ranelagh had always been my haunt, but it's a hassle to get to and park. This one is almost too convenient..

Only thing is that they don't get enough new stock in, so I'd say i'll get bored enough soon. still, 4 punk ipa for a tenner is always good value
