Lunch and Beer in the Summer Sun in Dublin

A skite.

These are just a small selection of the craft beers John Devlin and I tried in the Old Gaffney’s Pub site in Denzille Lane which is now a Beer Cafe following a most pleasant lunch in Ely Grand Canal where we enjoyed a bottle of the ever reliable Allegrini Valpolicella.

You buy the beer at list price and pay a 50 cent corkage to drink it on the premises. We prefered the pale ales which relegated all the lagers into bland taste territory. One thing common to all the beer packaging we viewed and samples is that they’re in bad need of good graphic design to better reflect the quality of their contents.

John is great company and we enjoyed a very pleasing hour in the sun on Denzille Lane, followed by a hour on the steps of the Pav.
