A Juicy Hazy Tropical Session IPA , with a name based on the story of Two young bucks who hopped on the DART [Train] one day and somehow ended up in New York City with not a penny between them!

Session Beers come from the fun fact that brewery workers were entitled to 2 Beers per day, i.e going on a ‘Session’ . Generally lower in alcohol content to avoid timely work accidents!. Should they bring back this rule…we possibly think so!

Jack Criss, the 17th century Irish pirate, was tall and handsome with blonde hair and eyes green as the sea. He set sail from Ireland, plundering his way to Spain and Italy. He didn’t die in battle but was stabbed to death in a Naples hotel. Probably by one of his four wives. Some bachelor!
Here’s to Jack!

If a Howth fisherman didn’t fancy going to sea after a heavy nights drinking he would tie a pig to the ships mast. With its devil-like cloven feet, the sheer mention of the word pig was thought to bring forth gales and storms. Only a brave captain would set sail, unless he fancied a rasher sandwich!

Grunt if you dare!


A malty, slightly fruity ale with a with a subtle hop kick. A great all rounder that combines well with main dishes and desserts.

Michael Collier, notorious 19th century highwayman, was North County Dublin’s answer to Robin Hood. He was so successful that his townland was dubbed Passifyoucan. Finally arrested in 1807 in his favourite haunt The Cock, he was deported and returned home only to die of cholera! Still, the name remains.

Drink up if you can!

The 5 Lamps Brewery tour and visitor centre is located inside the 1st floor of the Camden Bar on Camden Street. This newly renovated building dates back to the early 1900’s.The building opened as a 400 seat cinema ‘the Camden’ in 1912. It was enlarged and rebuilt in 1920 with 1200 seats in a Neo-Classical style and rebranded “the Camden De Luxe”. Later the exterior was remodelled in Art deco/Egyptian style in 1934 and seating capacity was increased for 1395 patrons. It had a 30ft wide proscenium, a 32ft deep stage and there were six dressing rooms. According to local lore Rita Hayworth attended a screening here in the 1950s! The cinema closed its doors on June 29th 1974. In 1975 it reopened as Ricardo’s amusement hall, the interior hall was split over two floors to accommodate a snooker hall. The stucco ceiling has been fully refurbished and may be familiar to many Commitments fans as the venue was used to host a rendition of “Mustang Sally” in Roddy Doyle’s famous 1991 movie about an aspiring Dublin Soul band with self interviewing manager Jimmy Rabbitte. ‘Jimmy Rabbittes’ is also the name of the small Irish local bar attached to the 5 lamps Camden Bar. This movie is well worth a watch for the music alone.
