Ill also open this up to others as well. Also what breweries would you say need work?
I am just curious as I am new into the Irish Craft Beer scene and have so far not been impressed.[/quote:38ofuqva]
Fair question, feel free to check my ratings under beersiveknown on Ratebeer...in recent months even breweries if normally bank on have produced some dubious stuff!
For me the Brewers with good beers across a range of styles are eight degrees, white hag, yellowbelly, rising sons, & boundary with a few other breweries making a handful of good stuff including Carlow, Galway bay, o brother. Am sure some of the newer ones have impressed but they don't quickly come to mind.

Most likely due to untreated water where chlorine is bonding with the phenols created by the yeast.
