He does indeed, and he gets a lot of b/s directed at him, but he's one of the good guys.

Decent wee drop, Whitewater's Belfast Black. Better in the bottle, as quality can vary a bit on tap - seems most drinkers still opt for the Black Stuff, so a keg can end up sitting opened a bit too long.

I prefer it to regular Guinness, and it's more comparable to Guinness' Milk Stout - slightly less bitter.

Some very interesting Belfast beers coming out more and more often - Boundary Brewing off the Lower Newtownards Road makes some crackers. Think I've seen some Sailortown brews for sale, and another company based in York Street was selling 'Galloper's Golden Ale', most enjoyable.

Mike's Fancy Cheese is going great guns off Union Street. Good to see. The fella knows his stuff, and the loaves they stock are also knockout (company called The Grateful Bread bakes for them)

I think we do punch well above our weight here with good quality food and drink. Long may it continue.
