The Irish poet, Brendan Behan once said, “I only drink on two occasions — when I’m thirsty and when I’m not.” Ireland, particularly Dublin where Behan was born, is known for its pub culture, and the scene has continued to evolve over the past decade. Seasonal, sustainable brews are more popular than ever, and tourists and locals alike reap the benefits. Explore Dublin with AESU, and discover the best bars and breweries throughout the city!
