Well, the Hopinator is proving to be quite a delight for both bartenders and customers of O’Connell’s alike and this week we have a new batch where we’ve combined the refreshing flavours of Kingpin lager from Brewdog with some zingy asian flavours, namely lime, ginger & coriander
The resulting beverage is wonderfully complex… ‘Nuff said!
Come try it out while we still have it!

We now have this lovely Sour Ale on tap from Brouwerij Omer Vander Ghinste (Bockor), Belgium.
Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge 5,5%
Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge is a Flemish Sour Ale, red in color with a beguiling balance of malty sweetness and acidic sharpness. It is made from spontaneously fermented and barrel-aged beer of at least 18 months in age. The beer is cooled overnight in a large, shallow metal vessel called a coolship and then fermented and aged in large oak foudres which are made in France and assembled on-site at Bockor. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.
