"The craft beer scene is booming world over. In the US, craft beer accounts for almost 8pc of all beer sales, and Europe is not too far behind. Pretty much every European capital has a dedicated beer bar, where beer enthusiasts can go to try something new or different.

Why is it a good time to open a beer-only bar?

"The craft beer scene is booming world over. In the US, craft beer accounts for almost 8pc of all beer sales, and Europe is not too far behind. Pretty much every European capital has a dedicated beer bar, where beer enthusiasts can go to try something new or different.

Tastes are becoming increasingly sophisticated and the best beers are being enjoyed much in the same way as a fine wine.

We wanted to do something a bit special with Beer Market, our seventh pub in Dublin, to pare things right back and focus solely on beer. Our aim is for Beer Market to be the best beer bar in Ireland. We are sourcing the world's finest beers, the vast majority of which aren't available anywhere else in Ireland.

On tap at the moment, we have one-offs from the likes of Edge, Naparbier, Buxton, Beerd, Brew By Numbers and Siren, plus the last ever keg of Two Hundred Fathoms, our limited-edition imperial stout aged in Teeling Whiskey barrels.

When it's gone, it's gone! At Beer Market, taps are numbered rather than branded, so the roster of beers on offer will change regularly."

Beer Market, Ireland's first dedicated beer-only bar is located at 13 High Street, Christchurch, Dublin 8, and open daily from noon.
