    The Alcohol content is irresponsible to be honest and thats coming from a craft appreciation fan. Trying to tell some people to savour the one strong beer is not applicable to the drinking culture here in my opinion. If a Macro style brewary did this they would be slated.






    The 10.1% beer is only served as a half pint. Doesn't sound that irresponsible to me tbh. My partner had one or two and wasn't any worse than if he had had 3/4 pints

    The savoring of one strong beer seems to work, I've been down to O Grady's a couple of times since they opened very recently and it has been relatively busy, and everyone seemed fine. You can tell people are there to savor the beer not chug and get hammered.

    Loving O’Gradys yard. Specially the 6.9% beers and 10.1% :D

    Now! That's the reason I'll happily visit the Grady's Yard to check what do they have in offer.

    I could never understand why the Eastern European style of beers are not available here (the strongest I ever had was an Estonian beer - 14% black, sweet with the chocolate plum aftertaste, those were the days!).

    And it's not about gulping one pint after another - two pints seem to be just right and off to bed straight after!

    Yea I am well aware of how it's served thanks for the pointer. And jus cos you sip on your beer and enjoy it as it is supposed to you are an exception to what I said. I merely made a general statement regarding craft.

    You wont get the hard core drinker in these type of pubs. They wont want to pay premium prices for a start, regardless of alcoholic content.

    Is a hardcore drinker just another name for an alcoholic?

    Kinda worse in fairness. It's a specific type of alcoholic who frequents bars and puts themselves and their problems upon others. Usually a nuisance and or violent.
