North Coast Bottle Share

Next Bottle Share – Friday the 21nd of January 2022 (7pm) – Atlantic Bar, Portrush

Do you want to share your love of beer with people who are also passionate about hops, malt, yeast and whatever else goes into your favourite beer?

The goal of the North Coast Bottle Share is to bring us together once a month if possible to share some of those fine beers we’ve come across on our journeys (physical and metaphorical).

If you’re based anywhere near Coleraine/Portrush, or on the Belfast to Derry/Londonderry train, then you’re hopefully in a good position to join us (few buses seem to run after 7pm unfortunately). Everyone is welcome.

So, what’s the deal? It’s fairly simple. We meet up in either Fairley’s bar in Coleraine or the Atlantic Bar in Portrush at a predetermined date and time (upcoming info is usually at the top of this page). Each person brings a beer (limited to a 750ml bottle, or a couple of smaller offerings), and we all share those beers, while enjoying some of the beers on offer from the pub (and their excellent selection in their off licenses).

Future dates to be determined, but some people have already pointed to a preference for Fridays, and quite often, but not always, it’s been on the third Friday of a month.

There’s a lot more details on the Bottle Share Basics page, just to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves, and the pub is comfortable having us.
