Green Goblin coming on tap

We have finally received a batch of the Green Goblin kegs we’ve been waiting on and we’ll be getting it on to our taps as soon as possible this week.

“Here comes the Green Goblin from deep in the wood – 100 year-old oak vats, that is. Made with Somerset apples, and matured in the oak, Green Goblin cider is a full-flavoured, bittersweet blend, beautifully balanced to give a fresh character with a medium dry finish.

One sip and your taste buds will be dancing with joy.”

Suomenlinna Old Greig now on tap!

From Suomenlinnan Panimo , The Suomenlinna Brewery, which is located just a few steps away from the ferry, in a pink barracks that was built under Czars reign between years 1868-1870 in Helsinki, we bring you Old Greig on tap.

This beer is only available at their own brewery bar and O’Connell’s!

Old Greig, at 7,0%, is a real full-bodied winter warmer. This old ale has been matured with time, spiced with spruce shoots, roasted juniper berries and orange peels resulting in a mahogany red delicacy. Sweet fruits and intense malts on the nose and a rich sweet malty taste that developes to a warm spiciness on the palate.

London Porter now on tap

We now have London Porter on tap!

A modern take on the 19th century porter style, Fuller’s rich, chocolatey London Porter recaptures the brooding beauty of pre-Victorian London. It’s evocative of simpler times but it’s a wonderfully complex pint.

Brewed to 5.4% ABV, London Porter bears outstanding depth of flavour. The blend of Brown, Crystal and Chocolate malts provide earthy character and creamy delivery, while hints of coffee and chocolate carry through onto the tongue. The range of flavours works well with a wide variety of foods, from rich meat dishes to chocolate puddings.

Real ale for just €6.00?

Yes, it’s true! Traditionally, all beer was poured straight from the barrel or pumped from the cellar without nitrogen or carbon dioxide pushing it out the pipe.

Beer was also brewed with natural ingredients so artificial additives (stabilizers, flavourizers and colourizers) played no part – the way it is supposed to be.

That craft of real brewing is back and you can sample a pint or nine every Sunday for the super low price of €6.00 per pint.


From: 16.00 Until: 00.30
