Have you checked out Ranelagh’s new ‘Bar & Kitchen’, formerly Russell’s and now reinvented as Taphouse? I have, and my review of it will run next Friday in the Indo’s Day & Night Magazine. (Tomorrow’s review features Forest Avenue, the new restaurant off Leeson Street which I bet you’re set to hear lots about if you haven’t already.)
But in the meantime, there’s a little gathering tonight in Ranelagh’s Taphouse which might be of interest if you’re in the hood, and if you like the sound of free beer and cheese?
The people from Knockdrinna Farmhouse Cheese in Kilkenny have put their heads together with the Little Milk Company and some of Ireland’s best craft brewers, and come up with a new cheese called ‘Brewer’s Gold’. It’s made by Helen Finnegan, Knockdrinna’s award-winning cheese-maker, with organic cow’s milk cheese from the various organic farmers who supply to the Little Milk Company, and its rind is washed in various Irish craft beers and ales including O’Hara’s Pale Ale, Dungarvan Brewing’s Red Ale, and Eight Degrees’ Red Ale.
If you fancy trying some of the cheese alongside some winter craft brews, there’s a launch party tonight (December 12th) in the Taphouse from 6.30pm. All are welcome, so maybe see you there?
And yes, I am reliably informed that there will be free beer!
