Wetherspoon set to open up to 30 pubs in Irela 7 years 1 month ago #139

Visited the Bridge House in Belfast on Saturday and was surprised to see how on board with craft beer they've become.

Two exclusive tap beers - a lager from BrewDog and an IPA from a brewpub in Virginia (USA, not Cavan) called Devil's Backbone who've won a rake of medals.

Plus Lagunitas IPA, Rogue Amber, and a Rye PA from Adnams with Amarillo, Cascade, Columbus, and Citra - all added to the permanent bottle lineup.

The Lagunitas wasn't the freshest bottle I've ever had (and at 6.2% and 45 IBUs, it's on the tame end of the scale for American IPAs [14B]) but it was £3, which is cheaper than it would've been up the road from the brewery.

Would love to see this range of offerings extended to the Irish branches.

Sure. That's how 'Spoons roll with draught beers.

At least the cans + bottles aren't contract.

They're also allegedly looking at a very prominent pub in Leixlip,[/quote:2h42egfv]

This is gone Sale Agreed but rumour has it it's Mr Fitzgerald that has bought it. Expensive pints and expensive food might be on the way! Doh!

Big falling out between 'Spoons and Heineken.

On RTÉ. (On phone sorry for no link).
