Plain Porter

A jewel in our crown. Officially “The Best Stout in the World”. AGAIN!! Look for the Gold Medal on the wall in Temple Bar. Technically a Porter, (a lighter stout) a smooth edged velvety mouthful just a hint of bitterness with no sourness – deeply aromatic but not overpowering. Immortal. “When no rashers grease your pan…”

Grain: Pale Malt, Flaked Barley, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Crystal Malt.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.
ABV: 4.2%

Brain Blasta

Our secret weapon. A fulsome, winsome strong ale. A deep copper tinged brew for the true aficionado, longer fermentation and thrice hopping bring about a complex soft bitterness allied to a malt induced sweetness with the characteristic oily Fuggles hop perfume. Not just for students. Once “stuffed” savour the flavour of a glass as a digestif… True “Aroma-therapy”.

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.
Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.
ABV: 7.0%

Oyster Stout

Oyster Stout

Rapidly becoming our best selling stout. A superbly balanced brew, smooth and rounded without being bland. More sweetness derived from fresh oysters shucked into the conditioning tank, what a way to go!
But of course not suitable for vegetarians.

Wrasslers 4x

Wrasslers 4X

The real deal. A fulsome full length bitter-sweet stout. The XXXX denotes the strength of alcohol and depth of flavour. Michael Collins favourite tipple by Wrasslers of Clonakilty. A stout like your grandfather used to drink. Late kettle hops produce a forthright aroma, flaked barley lending that rich body, ultimately yielding to the generous roasted grain built solidity of flavour.

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Black Malt, Flaked Barley.

Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

ABV:5.0%

“The best Irish stout I’ve ever tasted”

Tom Doorley, The Sunday Tribune.

“The best stout in Ireland for my money”

Michael “The Beer Hunter” Jackson.

Hophead

Hop Head

Originally brewed during our brewpub days this beer may have been considered somewhat ahead of its time. A highly aromatic, bitter pale ale this will satisfy the “hop heads” amongst us. Amber coloured and distinctly malty in character the triple addition of Centennial and Cascade hops lends a conspicuous citrus character for both flavour and aroma. The beer is rich and fruity with a wonderfully rich, oily, full mouthfeel.

Grain: Pale Ale Malt, Crystal Malt, Wheat Malt, Black Malt.

Hops: Pilgrim, Nugget, Cascade, Centennial.

ABV:5.0%

Porterhouse Red Ale

Porterhouse Red

A superior traditional red ale. Break through a balmy heavy cream head to a fruit filled characterful mouth, poised over caramel notes derived from deep roasted malts and not burnt sugar-like artificial additives.

Grain: Pale Malt, Crystal Malt, Wheat Malt, Chocolate Malt.

Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Kent Goldings.

ABV:4.2%

“Makes Caffrey’s taste like Tizer”

Michael “The Beer Hunter” Jackson, The Independent.

Turner’s Sticklebract Bitter. Our cask conditioned ale named after the artist William Turner, who was born on the site of our bar in London, is dispensed old school style via hand pump. A bright traditional ale-style bitter. New Zealand Sticklebract hops deliver fragrant aromatic floral notes counterpointed with a mouth of subtle bitterness. A quaffer. Turner would marvel in its composition.

Hops: Sticklebract.

Devils Half Acre

Devil’s Half Acre

It was once said the Devil had the best tunes, however we would argue we have the best beers. Drink this beer with caution or else prepare to be lead seriously astray. Deceptively strong and smooth, this beer has subtle dark fruit notes with a little hint of chocolate & liquorice and with a generous hop character all of which has been enhanced by the 6 months ageing in whiskey casks.

Grain: Pale Malt, Roast Barley, Crystal Malt, Chocolate Malt & Wheat Malt.

Hops: Galena, Nugget, East Goldings, Liberty
