Griffins of Kinsale
The drinks: Irish beer, of course, is the main attraction. Though Griffin has more beer lines in case he wants to expand, for the moment there’s six taps. Guinness is, well, Guinness, while Harp is the familiar Irish lager for lighter tastes. Smithwick’s is a crisp reddish amber ale with a pleasantly bitter finish, while Kilkenny cream ale has a mild taste with caramel notes. Lagunitas IPA will please those who don’t find Irish beers hoppy enough, and draft cider is especially good on a hot day. Also available: a brief wine list, mixed drinks and Irish whiskeys including several Jameson choices.
