Title TK #EBBC14

Pre-conference pub crawl's set list (HUGE thanks to Reuben Gray from @TheTailofAle for organizing):
1) Galway Bay Brewery Stormy Port Porter (cask) at The Brew Dock
2) J.W. Sweetman Porter (cask) @ Dublin's only proper brewpub
3) Rascals Brewing Co. Ginger Porter The Norseman as well as...
4) O'Hara's Irish Craft Beers Leann Folláin ("Imperial" dry Irish stout, 6%)
5) Someone's amber ale. Forgot name of bar. Remember that only porter they had was Founders Brewing Co. but I'm in Ireland not Mich (and why don't they ship to Oregon dangit?)
6) Porterhouse Brewing Company Plain Porter @ their public house.
Now I know why they call it porter. I needed someone to carry me home!

Epic of Gilgamesh

How many craft breweries in Ireland? Not even close to 50, not counting the UK's Northern Irish breweries that operate under different regulations. 43 brewing companies (including contract brewed ones) on the island. Another 20 coming soon. Closer to 30 physical brewing facilities.
51 in the Republic and 15 in N. Ireland according to Ratebeer.
