Though I doubt a saturated market can be blamed for Jack Doyle's closing, nor Evans. In both cases it was nigh-on impossible to buy their beer.

Dingle, of Crean's lager fame, is gone into liquidation according to today's paper.

I hadn't seen their beer around in ages, and I think this was the first year that they missed the RDS. I wonder what'll happen to the site.

I presume everything will be up for sale to pay back as much as possible of the €1.6m owed to creditors.

I've never been to it, but I can't imagine the site has a whole lot of potential uses.

Yes, known about that one for awhile now. At least that puts paid to the whole "are they or are they not an Irish Craft brewery" question. Last I heard of them, they were threatening to sue Tom Creans granddaughter for daring to use his picture on her beer.

I was talking to some lads from Blackwater in Wexford at the weekend and there wasn't a huge amount of awareness of Jack Doyles, and no surprise that it was closed.
I do remember when he was starting out, it was said to me that he wouldn't last the distance because he was jumping on a bandwagon by someone who had visited the proposed brewery site
Since when has popularity been a measure of quality?
