Tadgs Gastro Pub was located about a 2 minute walk from my hotel near the Kamo River. They have several local craft beers on tap and a wide selection of local bottled beers also. I chose to do a tasting of 3 beers and ordered a seared beef appetizer to help myself wake up. While I waited for the beer and beef to be prepared the eclectic music and a fresh snowfall outside helped calm my sake hangover.

The beef was dark purple at the core and marinated to perfection, of the beers I tried I enjoyed the dark the most (as usual), Sounan Chocolate Porter was extremely wholesomely bodied with a sweet blackberry finish, combined with the snowfall outside it reminded me of drinking hot chocolate during a winter trip to the cabin. The Y Market Craft Heart Red was worth noting also, with a comforting body followed by mellow notes of citrus.
