Great beer and lots of it. Who could ask for more.

Sister bar to Against the Grain, this joint sticks to the same formula: great selection of beers; decent pub grub at at good price; lots of whiskeys; and not a Heineken in sight. I wonder are the owners a bit annoyed that every other bar in the city is starting to stock the same great beers? Atmosphere-wise it fairs a better than it's South Side counter part but it doesn't feel like a 'proper' Dublin pub for some reason – and maybe that's the point. The bar staff are well-informed, enthusiastic and really care about their product. The Black Sheep is a smart and much needed addition to the unofficial Capel St regeneration project and an excellent after work drinking joint. Try the sample trays if you haven't been before.

This purveyor of fine ales also has great, fancier than your average, pub grub. But mainly I go there for there fantastic selection of brews. Stay away if you're looking for a budweiser (heathen!). They have beer from all corners. My favourite is O'Hara's Pale Ale, brewed in Carlow (I had my doubts about this, I mean what's ever come out of Carlow that's remotely pleasant?) it's properly tasty!!

Of the 3 craft beer sister pubs in Dublin this one is my favourite. Very nice atmosphere and a wonderful selection of beer. A great spot to play board games and I regularly have board game meet ups there.

Great food, wonderful collection of beer and my new favourite sassy waitress! Mixed crowd all enjoying their food and drinks. For some strange reason there was a bunch of people in the corner on laptop writing reviews. Each to there own i suppose. I'll definitely come back here to make my way through both their food and their drinks menus.

Love this place for a nice beer or whiskey anytime, but decided to hit it for lunch today. Bad move. Very surprised, but it was really poor. I had fish and chips (€13.50), which I think is a little overpriced. It arrived with a little salad (looking a little tired), an overcooked piece of flat fish (it was frozen, stodgy grey mush for flesh) and thick chips, that were reheated. It was not helped by the service of the waiter, who seemed like the very last place he wanted to be, was taking my order. Serious hipster attitude. That said, midway through our order a very nice waitress asked us if eveything was ok, she also made us coffee and was genuinely decent. Ok, so maybe Monday lunch is the graveyard shift in there, but its unacceptable to be served such poor food. I was genuinely disappointed as its a great spot for a drink.

Slightly off the beaten track, this is one of the best gastro pubs in Dublin. An excellent range of craft beers is matched by some great food, and a cozy atmosphere. You must go here.
