Stone Ruination now on tap

We will soon have Stone Brewing’s Ruination IPA on tap!

Stone Ruination IPA 8,5%
was the first full-time brewed and bottled West Coast double IPA on the planet. As craft beer has evolved over the years, so too have techniques for maximizing hop flavors and aromas. For the second incarnation of our groundbreaking India pale ale, we employ dry hopping and hop bursting to squeeze every last drop of piney, citrusy, tropical essence from the hops that give this beer its incredible character. We’ve also updated the name to Stone Ruination Double IPA 2.0 to reflect the imperial-level intensity that’s evident in every sip. Join us in cheering this, the second stanza in our “Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop.” Bracingly bitter. Thick, pungent hop aroma. We would say that no hops were injured in the brewing of this beer, but that would be a massive lie.

Ruddles County on sale

We now have a limited stock of Ruddles County bottles (0,5L) on sale for 5€!

Ruddles County 4,3%

Originally from England’s smallest county – Rutland – Ruddles County is an English ale with a distinctive flavour of dark toffee and caramel combined with a crisp bitterness derived from using rare Bramling Cross hops. Tropical and berry fruits from the mix of hops, in particular the rare Bramling Cross which adds black and redcurrants. Challenger in the boiling copper gives robust bitterness and this is balanced by the sweetness from the pale and crystal malts.
Ingredients: Pale Malt; Goldings, Challenger & Bramling Cross hops.

There will be a private party with invitation only and O’Connell’s will be closed to the public. It will be a formal event as we feel that’s the only way to celebrate this immense achievement in the fickle industry that is the restaurant business.

BrewDog's 5AM Saint now on the hopinator

Yes, an old favourite, 5AM Saint red ale is now in the hopinator tap with plum, date, apple and orange.

5am Saint 5,0% is The Holy Grail of red ales made with five different malts (Maris Otter, Caramalt, Munich Malt, Crystal and dark crystal malts) and five different hops (Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial, Ahtanum, Nelson Sauvin). It has loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops.

Out of this order and stability comes the rush of the pack. Berry and caramel riding alongside marmalade and chocolate. Spice and toast jostle with lychee and biscuit.

Real ale for just €6.50?

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 €6.50 per pint.

It’s also a Student Discount Day!

Guest + Improv feat. Project 2

Guest + Improv night brings us different visiting improv teams to our Comedy Stage once a month!
Guest + Improv night is happening every third Thursday of the month!

Don’t miss GUEST + IMPROV in December at ComedyO’Connell’s
Our December GUEST is Project2 from London!

“Project Two is a group of improvisers united by their love of science-fiction and improvised comedy, and how the two can meet and have stage-babies. Like many humanoids, we formed organically, finding each other in the community of improv in London. Project Two improvise a freeform science-fiction story, with nods to S.F. like Firefly, Back to the Future, Blade Runner, Doctor Who and Shaun of the Dead. They perform shows with 2-4 cast members.”
_____________________________
Each month, our show features a new GUEST improv team who will come and perform their own unique format in the first half of our show. Then, one lucky player will be chosen at random to perform a never before seen or rehearsed Two-Man show with our very own Trent Pancy.
Each show is different.
Each show is fun.


FREE ENTRY!


From: 20.00 Until: 22.00
