The old school house are brewing in the basement. a dry stout hoping to impress Guinness drinkers(VERY well brewed)and a PA.
they're planning on doing a lager next. I spoke to the owner at the bar he said there is a brewer coming into them to begin with and he plans on doing the brewing himself eventually. I didn't quiz him too much as he seemed to be on a break.

Fantastic and I can't argue with the suburben title. But probably best to keep a a pro brew, they have started with good quality beer and that's not always a easy thing to achieve. But best of luck to hear and great news for Dublin area?

I'd make a sh*t reporter. The stout is scholars stout and something similar for the PA. The pint glass had something like ravensbrew on it.

Just back from a snakey (viz.) Sunday lunchtime pint!

Cahal is right its a cracking pint of stout. Big creamy head, good retention as well. Probably on nitro.

Checked the receipt andf they call it "Scholar Black" and the price:

We ned to upgrade the Beoir Ap for Swords a bit but first there is a bit of legwork, drinking and note taking to be done!

Very interesting. Swords is very quickly becoming a craft beer hot spot.
