4.08/5  rDev -2.9%

Visited on June 8th, 2007.

Beers tried: Wrasslers Stout, Hersbrucker Pils, and a small sample of the Oyster Stout (brewed with fresh oysters) -- didn't taste like oysters (thank god) but I got a definite juniper twang. The Hersbrucker was scrumptious and refreshing. Wrasslers was a bit ascerbicly bitter, but still good.

Food: Cheeseburger with fires and Beef 'n' Stowt. Both were pretty good. Tasty sauce on the burger. The fries were quite BLAH though.

Ambience: Woody, brown interior. Beer bottles from around the world in glass cabinets on practically every wall. Low key chatter and mellow music (on a Saturday around 2pm). Some loud American tourists at the table next to us, though.

Selection: Fantastic! 10-12 of their own beers on draught or in bottles plus at least 100 bottled beers from around the world. Fairly good picks, but some duds (like Miller Lite, to name one of the most grievous offenses).

Other comments: We stayed here for about an hour because we had to press on, but I wouldn't have minded staying all afternoon to try the rest of their own brews. This is a must when visiting Dublin, but make sure you drink plenty of Guinness, though. It is liquid gold! It definitely does taste better in Ireland!

Four stories of seating, live music, impressive collection of bottles on show all over the place. Nice place to go out. I went with a large group and our orders were all correct and quickly filled. I ordered wings to share with a buddy and they were great quality. On to the more important stuff; the beer high quality and abundant. Their Oyster stout is fantastic and a prime representation of the Irish Dry Stout. If you aren't in the mood to try something new, they've got a bottle list longer than any I've seen in Ireland with stuff from the States and all over Europe. Not bad pricing either. I would highly recommend stopping in here to anyone in Dublin.

We visited here in April 2012 while on a tour of UKoGBaNI and Ireland. After a long ferry ride we dragged the kids to Porterhouse to have a few beers. It was kid-friendlier than most places we visited, and had no problem accommodating the wee ones.

Good beer. I had a sampler and tried most everything. We had standard pub food, which was standard. If you're a tourist visiting the area with family, I'd recommend this. If you're looking for a local experience, look elsewhere.

A great craft beer local in Dublin, and one of the best. A great range of brews from unique IPAs to stouts!
A-Great Irish theme, excellent Irish enviroment, and craft bar essence in the tourist district of Temple Bar. I went during the Olympics and Irish
Q-BEST BEERS IN IRELAND! Freak'n excellent!
S-Top notch! Very knowledgeable, provide great insight and recommendations into brews.
S-Numerous ales, lagers, & stouts on tap. Ask for a bottle of their barrel-aged imperial stout - best thing an Irish brewer has ever done; they do not advertise!
F-Food is excellent! Try the Irish cuisine!
V-Prices on the Slightly on the high side due to location in the tourist district!
Better than the overrated Temple Bar and a Guiness!
