In a sea of Guiness, the Porterhouse stands out as a place to grab something different. Located towards the end of the Temple Bar area, they brew their own line of beers as well as having a failry decent selection. As it is in the Temple bar area, it can get pretty rowdy at night.
The bar itself is a blonde wood sort of affair with brewerania covering the walls. The bar itself goes up three levels and provides plenty of windows to let the light in. The time I was there there was traditional music on which I dug.
Beerwise I managed to try a few of their beers including the Oyster Stout, An Brain Blasta and their Red. The Oyster stout stood out to me as being very good and the other two were decent examples of the style. There were about ten different brews of their own on tap. They also had the exceptional Galway Hooker on tap which is a must try.
There was also a good selection of bottles available though I did not try any of them. The menu listed them by country of origin with humourous blurbs for each. I recall a good selection of Belgians, English and American including Sierra Nevada and Brooklyn.
Pricewise it seemed on par with the rest of Dublin with beers coming out to 4 euro a pint.
All in all a good place to grab a pint of something different where all of the other bars have the same.

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!
