The Brew Dock (The Pubs of Ireland)

Part 5 of my beer travelogue of our trip to Ireland…

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24 — After an afternoon exploring the small seaside village of Howth, we took the DART train back to Connolly station in Dublin city centre. We decided to take a leisurely walk in the direction of our hotel, and only a block later we were enticed into The Brew Dock.

Where it’s Located: 1 Amiens Street, Dublin 1, Ireland

When Visited: Late afternoon on Wednesday, April 24, 2013

How I Heard About It: We stumbled upon this place – lucky find! I knew this place was serious about beer when I saw this sign:

Beer Sampled: It was happy hour and the place was busy, but we found two open seats at the bar. The Brew Dock had an ample selection of local Irish brews, highlighted by beers from Galway Bay Brewery:

I had my first ever “beer racket,” which was a sampler tray of three brews.

My racket included:

  • Bay Ale (Irish Red Ale)
  • Full Sail (IPA)
  • Stormy Port (Porter)

After the racket, I had a half-pint of another Galway Bay brew – Voyager, an IPA brewed with New Zealand hops.

We enjoyed the friendly service and draft beer selection at the Brew Dock and could have easily stayed longer, but we decided to press onward toward our hotel.
