The English pub and brewery chain Pivovar, which owns the likes of the Euston Tap, York Tap, Sheffield Tap etc, as well as the Tapped Brew Co. in Leeds, has [url=https://twitter.com/eustontap/status/998582401684197376:3sa3yrhy]announced[/url:3sa3yrhy] it has bought a pub in Dublin, on the fringe of Temple Bar. They have a huge wholesale operation too, and it looks like they're planning to bring beer over from the UK.

Location-wise, The Chancery is up for sale, and if The Legal Eagle can be gentrified perhaps it can too.
This got turned down for [url=http://www.dublincity.ie/swiftlg/apas/run/WPHAPPDETAIL.DisplayUrl?theApnID=3607/18:1deoygr3]planning[/url:1deoygr3] last week but they've re-submitted. If it gets approved it'll be on the corner of Exchange Street and Essex Street, around the side of the Turk's Head, and will consist of two stacked shipping containers and a large outdoor yard.
