They're gone out of Roscommon though. They're in Oranmore now.

"Tube":3jw54sli wrote: Galway - Galway Bay[/quote:3jw54sli]Galway Hooker has been operating in Oranmore longer than Galway Bay has at Ballybrit. Dunno if that affects the rationale, though.

"Tube":3jw54sli wrote: Mayo - Mescan or West Mayo?[/quote:3jw54sli]I think Mescan shades this, but wouldn't be 100% on that.

"Tube":3jw54sli wrote: Offaly - Bo Bristle[/quote:3jw54sli]Been a while since I've heard of them in the wild. May be out of business.

"Tube":3jw54sli wrote: Tyrone - Pokertree or Red Hand?[/quote:3jw54sli]Neither are currently in production, AFAIK. I'm reasonably sure Red Hand was producing beers first, though may not have been licensed.

The original owner/brewer sold up in April and wished the "best of luck to the new owners". Aside from one Facebook post there's been no activity though. Still cropping up on Untappd but that could be old stock.
