Found a great bar in Cork, the Bierhaus. Got about 18 beers on tap and a massive bottle selection. Having a Founders Breakfast Stout at the moment <awe>

Breakfast Stout? For Breakfast? <awe>

You should try to get your hands on some Franciscan Well. Their wheat beer and red ale are <awe> and they're brewed in Cork so should be able to get them easily

Strangely when I lived just outside Southwold and thier Adnams brewery, I found it easier to get hold of new beers from Adnams in London than my local which was actually the brewery pub.

Damn, I was back from Cork when you posted this, but I looked on a map and their Brew pub was just down the road from the Bierhaus <neg>

Didn't realise I was only about half hour away from Rebellion Brewery in Marlow. Lots of great beers and and help-yourself taster pumps <scratch> . That's next saturday decided.

A local resturant does pint and a half steins of the red ale for £4. Absolute steal. Goes down perfectly with a Sunday roast.

Had the Northern Monk Ice Cream Pale Ale last night! Really good.

Love a decent porter. Cocoa Wonderland (Thornbridge Brewery) is very nice and can get it in some supermarkets, Millionaire and Billionaire by Wild Beer Company are both excellent (Billionaire is 10% ABV mind) and if you can find it Caramel Fudge Stout by Brouwerij Kees (via a specialist beer shop) is brilliant.

I'm in a good position that one of my mates works in an Off licence who like to stock their crafts, usually if I find something nice I'll mind to him and they get in a few to test out.

Yeah I've got a really good bottle shop 10 mins from me, got hundreds of different beers of all varieties. It's brilliant.

Having a Wasteland Double IPA, it's not good. Tastes far too alcohol-y with excessive hop bitterness to try and mask it.

I love a good double IPA but will give that a miss...

I'm having a Stone IPA at the moment which is decent.

The internet seems to think Stone is amazing. Is it easy to get a hold of in bottles?

I must be one of the few in this country that can't stand IPAs. It's bloomin' everywhere
