if you like wit beer, it's pretty good. not my favorite or anything...

besides wits and IPAs, most "posh" beers taste like spiced meaty garbage to me. *ducks*

i have not. but you're not really selling it to me with the 'tastes like shit', gurph.

we have a bar here, a tiny little spot upstairs from a gay bar, that has porterhouse plain on tap, along with some other lovely porters. they steadfastly refuse to stock guinness. best pub in limerick.

I was up in Maine last week and visited the Allagash brewery. They do a free tour and a free tasting. They're fucking saints, and Curieux is delicious and bourbony.

I need to have a mini spree in Waitrose soon because last time I was there they had tons of unknown, exciting looking beers of which I unfortunately didn't participate. Stuff I've been drinking at home tends to be bought on the way home from work which usually tends to be:

It's stronger than the majority of what you usually see but it doesn't tell taste wise. It's fucking great. Funnily enough I'm just finishing one now. To be followed by:

Is that thomas st where that rubberbandits church is?

Well down the road of the harbour bar theres a porterhouse. Stays open till 3am because they have a god awful club at the back, but sure keeps the place open past 12.30. Porter house red is a good substitute for smithwick's because they dont stock it. Also usually have a "beer of the day" for 3 quid generally. Can range from some pretty nice stuff to shittiest of shitty. Remember getting about 4 Rochefort 10's in there for 12 quid. That was a good night (I think).
