I finally managed to have a pint of the Chocolate truffle stout on Saturday in the Porterhouse Central. It made for a nice change; a bit of a novelty, I thought, but why not? I would not be drinking it for a session though.
Incidentally, why do they insist on playing crap music in there at a loud volume. For me, it seems to go a little against the theme of craft beer! More for WKD drinkers, I suspect....

What's this notion of liking craft beer [i:2dd2jpav]or[/i:2dd2jpav] loud music but never the twain..?
Admittedely we may be all getting on a bit <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> , and becoming settled in our ways, but does 'craft beer pub' have to equal 'old man's pub'? Genuine question. What are peoples thoughts?

I know Séan has mentioned how Maguires turns into a cattle mart, but even in my 'youth', those kind of places weren't my thing. But does it have to go the other extreme? I like my music, and like a pub to play good music . Hell, I did my stint as a dj for a few years, and plagued enough people with noise pollution on a saturday night.
Now I do like my afternoon pints, and quiet pubs. But surely good beer in lively pubs is only going to help promote the 'image' of craft beer, be it Irish or otherwise.

What I omitted to say, was that it was about 4pm (and not 4am!). There is no "maybe" about my getting old, but to me the music type as much as the loudness was the problem. I thought it was more suitable to Flannerys or Slapper-faced Jacks and a later hour! It was hard to hear yourself talk.

Now Séan's house was too quiet.....;-))

Fair enough.
I guess, to give Porterhouse their credit they do have different themes, or atmospheres I guess, for each pub. The couple of times I have been there, it was wall-to-wall footie.

Damn it. I just passed my 100th post without saying something profound, as seems to be the trend on other fora (forums?). I'll just have to waffle away the next 99 posts, and be ready for the next 'milestone'.
