Thanks lads ( all 12 or so who was at the meet)
We ( from Kildare town) had a lovely evening, was great to have the banter and taste all the variety or beer styles from kit, extract and mash. All very drinkable keeping in mind that peoples preferences are very different and some people dont like some styles.
Roll on the next one, I'm sure I can meet up again with ye.


Yeah thought about the photo's after I left!!!


Defo another great meet-up, impressed with the variety of beers on offer, some crackers!! well done brenmurph for your contributions; and of course the amount of food from our host would feed the proverbial army, again. :P
Gotta say that our host, Gerry is a proper gentleman, even organised a taxi for us late hangers-on!


Yeah, I think the Lucan meetup kicks ass, I found out what the 'strawberry' was in my ale haha, I think it was the amount of 'Special B' that was added, supposedily it can add a lot of sweetness
