Not that any of you lot will care, but what a great pub. Though beez neez is far too addictive a beer for my own good. :beer: :beer:

And Guinness in Dublin tastes exactly the same as it does everywhere else.

In England at least Bar and Pub are fairly interchangeable words these days.

It does now we get the Dublin brewed stuff in the UK, but it didn't before when we had the UK brewed stuff. - FACT!

I drank a pint at the Factory bar, and nothing compares to it, also because of the seagulls zigzagging above, drunk from the fumes

Did you kick one of the seagulls?

They've moved the factory now, so the old factory is kind of a guinness theme park. The pint was still really good... although I was on a stag night and some of the guys insisted on trying to get a pint of stella or something instead. *sigh*

Murphys is still better.

I like Caffrey's better then either Guiness or Murphy's but I agree that Murphy's is better then Guiness. Supposedly in the 70's if you were Protestant in Ireland then you were a Caffrey's man but if you were Catholic then you were a Guiness man. I like them both but find Caffrey's to be less heavy so I can drink more. Drinking more is a topic near and dear to my heart.

Caffreys is an ale rather than a stout though?

I don't like it at all.

They relaunched it when I was at university, at the same time everyone was bringing out new mass market 'ales' that had long shelf lives and could be stored/poured like lagers and were therefore a lot cheaper to maintain. John Smith's relaunched at about the same time. Rubbish.

kicking a seagull gives you pleasure

Yes it did.- EXPERIENCE!

Our experiences varied then...

The Dublin brewed stuff is definitely nicer.

This'll be where you pull out the results of some blind tasting text...

When I was blind I tasted them both, and they both tasted like Tizer.

Funko

Tizer, that's a drink which is wrong.

talking of Tizer , anyone here ever had Tanora?

and yes, many years ago the export Guinness used to taste different to the home stuff.

Personally I prefer Murphys but thats cos it was brewed at the bottom of the hill where my family all live and it was mostly what was on tap in the bars.

I used to go to PJ's every Thursday.
I am also of the opinion that the place has gone downhill recently.

Didn't realise you were an Aussie, let alone lived near either PArra or Balmain (depending on which PJs you went to).

Near Parramatta. Until I moved yesterday, that is.

Oh well, we were near neighbours for a while. Moved to North Parramatta about 8 weeks ago now.
