Ireland is the only country in the world where the favourite beer style is stout (at about 50% of the whole market). It is home of the worldwide known and largely overrated (also by myself :-)) Guinness. The market is dominated by St. James's Gate (Guinness), followed by InBev UK (owner of Murphy) and Scottish & Newcastle/Heineken (owner of Beamish).
Breweries: 30 to 40 / Beers: 120 to 180 / Consumption per capita: 125 litres.
