Tasting Guinness Open Gate Citra IPA, Pilsner and O'Hara's Hop Adventure: Eureka
Guinness and O'Hara's sent me some samples of their new latest releases to try so I took out the camera and recorded a tasting session. I skipped the Pure Brew because I had already tried it . The Pilsner was similar to Hophouse 13 but perhaps a little clea...

Good Friday Beers
Good Friday in Ireland has always been a mystery to me. Since 1927, the sale of alcohol on the Friday before Easter (Good Friday) has been banned in Ireland. The original act also banned the sale of alcohol on St Patrick's Day and Christmas day but the St P...
