The first locally-produced Elbow Lane Craft Beer is now available at the Castle Café, Blackrock Castle and its sister restaurant Market Lane on Oliver Plunkett St. Developed by the foodie folk behind the two popular eateries, Angel Stout, named after Angel Lane which is situated at the North Gate Bridge end of North Main Street in Cork city, has a tough roast and malt flavour with a full-bodied and smooth finish. The beer is brewed using the strong hop variety Herkules to get a balanced hoppy spiciness and is best suited to robust steaks, stews and curries.
