Dublin Pubs Immortalized

Heineken has commissioned the Dutch pottery company Royal Goedewaagen to create original beer taps for three Dublin pubs in the form of miniature models of each venue. Royal Goedewaagen created scaled models of The Stag’s Head on Dame Court, John Kehoe’s on South Anne Street and The Grand Central on O’Connell Street. Models were hand carved and painted in Dutch Delft Blue and are now used to serve Heineken in each pub. It’s a clever way to showcase both the Dutch beer and Royal Goedewaagen’s 400-year-old pottery technique. For my part, I don’t get why anyone would go to Dublin to drink Dutch lager; just saying.
