OFF LICENCES DIRECTORY 8 years 10 months ago #1

I love the directories on the site and i was just wondering if we could get one that gave us off licences that stocked Irish Craft Beer and what they stock as i find it difficult to get my hands on some product locally.

Thanks for listening

OFF LICENCES DIRECTORY 8 years 10 months ago #2

Hi,

Short answer: no <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( -->

The pub Directory lists every single on-trade location that we know of which sells Irish craft beer. If we extened that to off licences it would mean listing every single Tesco and Superquinn and O'Brien's and Molloy's etc, and keeping them inspected for what they have. It's not practical.

The alternative is to introduce some level of selectivity, though that's not going to help someone who's The Only Craft Beer Drinker In The Village since it's not likely somewhere will get selected on the recommendation of one person.

Your best bet is to use the forum: where are you? Chances are someone will know where to get decent beer there, if it's there to be had.

The breweries are listed in the Directory and many of them list their stockists. If your local brewery has a stockists page there might be something useful there.

And as a last resort you can order on online from [url=http&#58;//www&#46;drinkstore&#46;ie/:27zjsyev]DrinkStore[/url:27zjsyev] and [url=http&#58;//www&#46;thebeerclub&#46;ie/:27zjsyev]TheBeerClub[/url:27zjsyev] in Dublin. Both deliver nationwide at pretty good rates.

Hope that helps!

Could it be done as some sort of user-regulated wiki page ?

The multiples could just have one listing each. Everyone knows Tesco, SQ etc have a limited selection nationwide so there's not much value in having a detailed listing....but there are lots of independent off licenses that people may not be aware of.

I'd agree with that- A single listing with the location listed as 'stores nationwide'. I also think that the idea of 'Beoir Recommended' was mooted- this could be used to list off-licences that we thought were worthy.

But as I said above, it's not going to find anyone a good off licence when there's no-one else in the vicinity to tell you about it.

There's no substitute for asking on the forum, IMO.

True. However I think we could compile a list of off-licenses by asking the microbreweries who they supply.
