Jet Black Heart now on the Hopinator!

We’ve now got Jet Black Heart on the Hopinator with some fresh cherries and bourbon vanilla pod.
It’s also on tap as it’s own, so it’s a perfect oppartunity compare the two!

Jet Black Heart 4,7%

This smooth and roasty oatmeal milk stout won our 2015 Prototype Challenge. A range of eight different malts have been unleashed in its creation, leading to a level of complexity seldom seen in other stouts.
Roasty coffee and chocolate lead to a decadent, full-bodied richness of near uncharted depths with a velvet mouthfeel from the addition of oatmeal and a touch of wheat. This is complemented at every turn by the Magnum and Sorachi Ace hops, with the latter bringing an intensity of smooth vanilla and dark berry fruit on the long, rewarding finish.

Guinness Nitro IPA now on tap!

Now on tap! Guinness Nitro IPA

Known for its black, velvety stout, Guinness has ventured out to brew other beer styles and its latest project is a brand new IPA that is served on nitro in lieu of normally only using carbon dioxide – and their launching it in draught form first in Ireland and Finland!

“IPAs are complex and hoppy, but for some beer drinkers the bitterness can be too much,” explained Ortega, the brewer who created this beer’s recipe. “We aimed to make a balanced, smooth beer. Guinness perfected nitrogenated beer more than 60 years ago, so we believed we could really add something new to the style. There’s plenty of hoppy flavor, with citrus aroma to the fore, but the nitrogen rounds it all out. The mouthfeel is fantastic, and the use of Guinness yeast gives it an echo of the character of our famous stouts.”

reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA coming soon!

We will have Founders Brewery reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA coming on tap this week!

reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA
reDANKulous Imperial Red IPA is a no frills, bold 9.5% ABV India Pale Ale. It pours a pleasing burnt amber with some sweetness due to the Caramalt and roasted barley used in the malt bill. But hops are the true headliner in this elaborate sensory experience. The spicy, piney, tropical complexities of Chinook, Mosaic and Simcoe hops hit you right away with their dank aroma—and they stick around. Take a sip to have your palate simultaneously walloped and caressed in all the right places. Combined, the hops take the beer to 90 IBUs. It’s not just ridiculous. It’s reDANKulous.

Stone IPA cali-belgique now in the hopinator!

We now have Stone IPA cali-belgique in the Hopinator with lemon peel, cantaloupe melon and mint!

Stone Cali-Belgique IPA 6,9%

A California-style IPA with a Belgian twist.
Stone Cali-Belgique IPA features a complex and surprising combination of flavors, but behind the fancy title is the simply delicious Stone IPA. The addition of a carefully selected strain of Belgian yeast adds banana and spice notes to the hoppy brightness of our flagship IPA. Think of it as an otherwise identical twin to Stone IPA that was raised in a Belgian culture. Literally.

Real ale for just €6.50?

Yes, it’s true! Traditionally, all beer was poured straight from the barrel or pumped from the cellar without nitrogen or carbon dioxide pushing it out the pipe.

Beer was also brewed with natural ingredients so artificial additives (stabilizers, flavourizers and colourizers) played no part – the way it is supposed to be.

That craft of real brewing is back and you can sample a pint or nine every Sunday for the super low price of €6.50 per pint.

It’s also a Student Discount Day!
