Well it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in the Porterhouse Temple Bar. The place is decked out to the nines but
still has a great cosy feel.
I am really looking forward to trying a few of the festive beers they brought in for the Christmas period, some are old
friends like Sierra Nevada's celebration (always a good brew), and Hooke Norton's 12 days.
Some are hopefully going to become new friends I am really looking forward to sampling the anchor steam Christmas ale and the
goose island mild winter. The other one that looks interesting and is coming in at a cracking 10% ABV is the St. Bernardus
There is a little whisper going around the bar that they are going to have a sample of the new barrel aged Celebration Stout
on draught. If you don't manage to taste it on draught I believe it is going to be in bottle at a whopping 11% despite the
label saying it is 10% scuttlebutt says that it picked up an extra kick from the whiskey cask.
I saw the Christmas band line up for December and was really happy to see Fritzafrenic back after doing an album. If you
haven't seen these guys check them out - they do some great Madness tunes and a great version of Baker Street. As for the
of the line up Oh Happy Days, The Goods, The Kicking Kings and rock tribunal, funk, rock and pure rock respectively with
everybody being judged by ditch and the rest of the tribunal guys rocking the night away on new year's eve.
Anyway I've rabbitted on long enough - get off your keester and check out the beer and more importantly the vibe in
Porterhouse Temple Bar. Ho Ho Ho!!!

Hello to all our lil blog readers out there.
We are late with our blog because we have been so busy with all our Christmas preparations we just got the place fully
decorated. It's so festive we think Santa and his Elves might just fit right in here. We certainly have the space for all
the Elf & Reindeer after work parties.
Our first weekend in December has gone by and we hope they are all like that. Thanks to all the parties and bookings that
were here over the course of the weekend. Really a great festive feel to the place. Our two resident DJs (DJ Duffy: Fridays
DJ Doogan: Saturdays) had everyone up on the dance floor all weekend. The place was kicking. Our Sunday bands are going
great. Always a nice buzz around each Sunday from 9pm - some super bands coming over the next few weeks with the likes of
Crosstown and Santoria. Our live football shown on our big screen always gets a crowd in even on a Monday or Tuesday. I
think its mainly for our wings though. Have you tried them?
In other news Come Dine with me Ireland popped in to film a couple of weeks ago. We had a few of the All-Ireland Dublin team
in for a few casual drinks of our finest porter over the last few weeks also.
We suggest if you are thinking of coming to us this Christmas best to give us a call as we are filling up as they days go
Thanks for taking the time to read this. We hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and if we don't see you soon we hope to
see you in the New Year with all the big events coming in the new year... Like Westlife in Croker AND The Dubs Lifting Sam
for a 2nd time!!!
Thanks for taking the time to read our lil blog.
