That's a very good price. It was €4.35 in Superquinn; €5.99 in Redmond's (I think) and €6.50 in the Abbott's. €3.99 is a bloody good price: buy more.

The big thread on it is here.

And welcome to the site.

My suppliers have run out of it, and the lack of stock was confirmed by the brewers themselves, hence Leann Folainn.

Which is not nearly as homebrew-friendly. No regard, those brewers...

Hi
My name is Dave (Long time beer drinker, first time brewer) and I live in Kells, Co.Meath. I just a few moments ago ordered a pale ale kit and starter equipment. Really looking forard to setting up and starting, I have been a keen amature cook for a few years and now see this as a natural next step for a beer lover.

Delighted to see ye on the TV the other night BTW...

Welcome to the site Dave. You are certainly not the only one who cooks as well as brews. It's all about making stuff that tastes the way you want it to and the only way you can really do that is to make it yourself.
Fermentor: Nothing :(
Conditioning: Export Stout (8% Vol.) & Porter (5% Vol.)
Serving: Ale (4.5% Vol.)

You have a few options, given that you're in North Dublin the ones that spring to mind immediately are McHughs - Kilbarrack and Malahide Road.

I will have to try McHughs in the very near future. Swords seems to be all about the mainstream fizz

The vast majority of offies are. Drink Store on Manor Street, if it's not too far out of your way, usually has London Porter in.
