Should be in Belfast next weekend so I'll pop in then if I can.

Was not aware that oysters weren't usually added, always just assumed from having tried the Porterhouse one.


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.

Tonight, I'm having a Theakston Old Peculier.

Picked up some Helvick Gold last night and I think its my first time drinking this!

I have drank Blackrock Stout on many occasions and Coppercoast so dont know how I missed Helvick Gold.
Looking forward to drinking this tonight.

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.

Just cracked it open. Wonderful. Lovely hoppy and citrus and tiny bits of yeast floating around too. I need to get this into my safety stock of beers to have in case if an emergency !

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!
