Porterhouse Beers in T2

Can anyone tell me if the T2 bar that stocks the Porterhouse bottles is The Slaney Bar (Departures) or the Oak Café Bar (Arrivals)? And I see there's another one called "Flutes"!

Thanks.

Greetings from T2 where I am disappointed to say that I can't find any porterhouse beers on tap. The only thing out of the ordinary on tap was Blue Moon.

The Harvest Market is definitely open; that's where I found them bottled.

Didn't see them on draft, but I'll look closer next time.

Harvest Market, upstairs in T2, had Plain, Oyster, Red and Temple Brau on draught and Plain, Oyster and Red bottled yesterday.

You don't get the swish atmos of the Slaney Bar downstairs, but it's still fantastic news and a great coup for the Porterhouse: well done them.

While that is most most welcome, why oh why do they replicate the draught selection in bottles!

If you DO find any decent beers in India, please let us know. I'm heading to Bangalore in late April.

basically found kingfisher and fosters were the most available beers there. in fairness i didn't really get to too many bars.

apparently Karnakata (state where Bangalore is) is looking to promote micro-breweries and is changing the law to help them. i'll try and dig out article i found about it. could be a worthwhile opening for the Porterhouse there - they should get Kevin O'Brien to open it!

You'll need to know how to remove glycerine from the beer. A lot of the imports have it in there and it's not too pleasant.

here are those articles about microbrewing in bangalore

they're a year old and I certainly didn't see any evidence of it having happened yet though.

Crud, I've been here almost 4 1/2 years now and I still need some things translated; what's "jubbly"?

A bit of rhyming slang, think of it as "lovely stuff" or "good going"...
