    Anyone know where you could get Sierra Nevada Porter over here? Had some in London and it's class.
    Also, what about King Cobra? I used to get it in Makro but haven't seen it in a while there.
    And finally, had some Innis & Gunn beer in malmaison recently. Anyone seen that about?

    The best place for any rare booze is The Vineyard on Ormeau Road.

    Chin chin!

    I'm pretty sure Tesco sell King Cobra.

    However, all beer tastes like penis.

    Innis and Gunn! Well done that man!

    I once got some of that by mistake - it really is the best THE BEST beer ever brewed. They discovered it accidently, by aging beer in old whiskey barrels, so as to keep the barrels in a certain condition or something, then tasted it, bottled it, sold it. Dead pricey mind - but worth it.

    They sell both the wee bottle and the big bottles at Sainsbury's Forestside (who also have a lot of spirits and King Cobra), and Newry. The also sell it at Knockbreda Tesco.

    The Vineyard have a good rare selection, but they also order in for you. I got them to order in some "43" for me, it took a few days but it came. I thikn they stock it now, lovely stuff, mix it with milk, tastes like a grown up version of a mini milk - but in a glass. Goes very well with a smoothie also.

    Fuck, you can tell I've warmed to this topic....

    Having never tasted penis, I couldn't possibly comment.

    The Vineyard all the way! They usually have a selection of Sierra Nevada including their Pale Ale, which is Neil Young's beer of choice ;-)

    Oh really, interesting, I remember him with the odd Michelob back in the Harvest days...

    GapWines on the Antrim Road/Carrick is also good

    I can't understand why bars/pubs here have such a limited choice beer-wise, aside from the odd bottled number. Ballix, of course I can, but it's still rather depressing.

    try living in England. Two pumps in each bar - lager and ale. The Hewitt did Innis and Guin as their 'beer of the month'. But I'd advise anyone who likes their beer to try the Whitewater stuff - Belfast Ale, Belfast Lager and Belfast Black. They seem to know what they're doing.

    aye, clotworthy dobbin is a nice one.
    as is hilden's chocolate stout.

    Innis and Gunn is pretty easy to find. Also, Katy Dalys does a decent range of bottled ales, and cheap on a Friday between 5 and 7pm.

    Balls.

    Don't suppose they'd consider my garage??...I'd make sure all the lovely beer was well looked after, lol.

    I know. I thought at least some venue would be able run the beer festival.
    Custom House Square would be a great venue too.

    Try Weavers Gold @ the John Hewitt.. Or the back bar in the Garrick, they get some real gems in from time to time. They may still have some BOAGS (Tazmania) very special.
  17. avatar Orzo
    I drank Boags quite a lot when I was in OZ. The annoying thing was that when I was in Tasmania, I completely forgot about visiting the factory. :(

    Cascade is also another great Tassie beer (that's better than Boags)

    In fact, the best beer in OZ comes from Tasmania IMHO.

    sha moan!

    Innis and Gunn is on offer in Tesco at minute 1 a bottle. Given that it is indeed the most delicious beer ever created. Its nearly like beer with Sailor Jerrys rum in it to me. Also 6.6pc so watch yourself there lads. It sets in pretty quick and is very easy to go down.

    I also recommend Casablanca (Gap Wines) and Efes Pilsner.(Gap)

    I love the SN Pale Ale. Aint ever tasted any of their other range.
