Re: Dundalk Bay Brewery?

That pub is only up the road from me. Have they any other beers? Haven’t brought myself to call in yet.

Re: Bottles for 25ltr brew

Re: Dublin this weekend

McHughs off licence is only a few mins from donaghmede. As far as pubs go there’s not much. I live around there and the choices aren’t good. Hope brewery are right beside and would be worth a call.

Re: New Homebrewer

An option for all grain is a brew in the bag setup. It gives you the quality of all grain without having to invest in a mash tun. You’d still need a boiler but these are reasonable enough or you can build your own out of a fermenter and a few kettle elements. Jumping into all grain isn’t that bad as...

Re: Small Event - help\advice

Galway bay have always been keen to help out with events for both Beoir and NHC so their new pub might be a good place to start.
May not do a full event but host a night for like minded folks.

Re: ICBF 2017

Couldn't make it this year but giving my FB and twitter it sounded a low quieter this year. A good few regular exhibitors missing.

Re: Beoir#3 - It's long past time

Yeah St Mel's wanted to do it. We talked about it at Killarney last year. We were talking about something using their local Longford bilberries but that's dependent on bilberry picking season I suppose. End of July if I remember correctly...

Re: What beer would you like to see us brew?

How adventitious are you? :?: Lots of different styles haven't been touched. As far as stouts go, a nice rich stout with a decent % of brown & chocolate malt will hold its own once a stout drinkers can bring them self to sample it. American stout is also a nice option.
