We went here with a recommendation from a friend. They have an amazing selection of beers from all over the world. They also have organic gluten-free beer and a knowledgeable staff. We were able to sample some beers before we decided on them. Good choice!

Ate here and had a beer! I had the duck tagliatelle and it was amazing, my partner had a steak burger and loved it too!

They didn't have the strawberry beer that I wanted but the barman listed many similar beers, which helped a lot. He also took our food order and brought it out and he was super friendly and welcoming!

Atmosphere is good, and the decor is quirky but it made the place better. There's board games, 4 in a row and jenga, if you want to play, which I think is a nice little touch!

I'd definitely come back here, and intend to go back in the near future!

Given, going to any bar on the weekend on Camden street - its going to be packed. This is no exception for a Friday / Saturday night.
This one is a good hidden gem for a sneaky mid week pint with a sophisticated selection of beers if you are feeling experimental. Good staff, food looks good and reasonably priced.

I went to Against the Grain recently with a few friends.
We had a great time. They have a really good selection of beers both unusual and everyday, so everyone will be happy! There is also a great selection of wine and whiskey! AND if you are peckish then never fear they have food and good food at that. We went in for one quick drink at ended up staying for the rest of the night. Really lovely atmosphere and the bar staff are very friendly...They even give you lollipops on the house! This is a bar that marches to it's own tune. Well worth a visit! You will not be disappointed!

Went in the other day and the place was reeking of bleach (not just the toilets) - was very off putting. The beer is over priced big time. There is another chain of bars in Dublin with a better price point in my opinion. Also, in the toilets they hadn't bothered putting on the immersion for hot water. It was a freezing night, drinking cold beer and had to wash hands with freezing water. Given i paid €4.60 for a half pint I expected more! Avoid...
