You can get a pint in the Mourne Seafood Bar, right beside Kelly's Cellars. Food in there is brilliant and the Oyster stout is the best pint I've had in a while, so well worth visiting the place. Pity it's not more widely available

Stopped in the porterhouse on the way home for work for dinner. Had a Brain Blasta, quite nice and to be honest does what it says on the tin.

Also tried a Hop Head (I think a sign said it was a guest keg), absolutely delicious, possibly the nicest thing I've ever drank. And so clean and fresh tasting I almost expected to see some bits of actual plant floating in it.

(edit: just googled and Hop Head seems to be one of their own)

Just bought 6 bottles of Erdinger Oktoberfest and got my 1 litre stein to go with it.

I put one 500ml bottle in and it looked lost in the glass.

Most of the decent beer offies here should have it. It occasionally shows up on draught as well. Nice beer. Though last time I was in Brussels I noticed one place had free-standing flat-bottomed Kwak glasses, which is cheating.

Had their 'Dead Man's Ale' in their Brewpub in San Francisco. A bit disappointed with it to be honest. Incredible array of taps though (40+).

Incidentally, did anyone else notice that Brew Dog are looking for potential pub locations in Dublin? Hoppy Days.

Tonight I'm having some Flying Dog, Double Pale Ale. Far too drinkable for a beer of its strength (11.5). I reckon 3 will be enough to help the night along

You put the idea into my head tonight so I picked up a bottle earlier and I'm just sipping on it now. Yum yum!
