Taste of Dublin returns to the Iveagh Gardens today for four days of gourmet food and drink served outdoors by the city's top restaurants and artisan producers.

In a quest for culinary excellence, presenter Derek Davis travelled the length and breadth of the country in the 1987 TV series 'A Taste of Ireland'. In this extract, he goes to the Guinness Hopstore in Dublin to investigate what modern technology has done to the black stuff brewed there since the 18th century. Does the pint remain the same?

'A Taste of Ireland: Dublin' was broadcast on 19 October 1987.
