Thankfully the snow did not make an appearence and hinder Yelp Dublin's last elite event of 2010. Dublin Yelpers headed Northside to Sin É, pronouced shin eh and meaning that's it, to try salty dog cocktails and Irish craft beers.
Dublin Yelpers are far too fashionable and the majority abstained from wearing an ugly jumper but Joshua R made up for them all by sporting a jumper with flashing Christmas lights – good man Joshua for risking electrocution just to look like a Christmas tree.
David and Jonathan from California Wine Imports brought College Green Brewery Belfast Blonde and College Green Brewery Headless Dog. We learnt that the Belfast blonde has a sherbety zing on the palate that makes this a superbly easy drinking favourite. Light in colour, it gives you exactly what you need when thirsty, and leaves you wanting more! Headless Dog has the drinkability of a session ale with a backing of malt and hops to balance the beer beautifully. A great food matching beer, ideal for pastry based dishes.Thank you so much guys for the great tasting session.
Moe the bartender, you can't make this stuff up, squeezed many a lime for the salty dog cocktails. Rum, bitters and lots of lime! We munched on mince pies and danced to the tunes of Brian Taffee. Thank you so much to Kieran of Sin É for being so welcoming to us all. Post you thoughts and musings of the night here! Write reviews of the event here! And lastly check out the photos from the talented Cian Brennan here!
Thank you so much Dublin Yelpers for making 2010 such a fantastic year for Yelp. I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and eat too much! Also I hope that you all have a healthy and happy New Year!
Till 2011 sin é!
