I don't go to lots of different pubs anymore. I have a few local favorites that I frequent where I know the beer is good and fresh and the crowd and staff are friendly. I went to one of them recently after about a month hiatus and one of the (hot) waitresses smacked me in the back of the head for neglecting them...

Almost never. Between my brews and the stuff I can get at the state store and/or World Market I'm set. There are no pubs/bars locally that have any good beer.

Well, if we actually had what I consider to be a pub here in America I would probably enjoy a nice pint every evening. Unfortunately, we mostly have bars with a few "pubs" sprinkled in, none of which have anything decent to actually drink in them.

Someone give me a real pub with trivia night and I am there! In the meantime, my house and my beer will just have to do.

I think my town probably has around 200 plus pubs.
Plenty of them like this.

If I lived there I'm certain I'd be a fat-assed drunk.

Pubs?

What are those?

Round where I am there are only places with names like the "dawg house", "Phat kat's" and the "packing house" (guess what business this used to be) and guess what their normal tipple is... I'll give you a hint.


3 letters.







Okay, I guess i do hav a brew-pub which is really quite good, Trout river.

1-2 a month...

too far too walk or else I would go twice a week (that is all they are open)

SWMBO won't drive that often.

I rarely make it to a pub/bar. Just don't have a ton of time. We'll make it to a brewpub every couple of months or so, there's a decent one not too far south of here. But, that's a replacement for going out to dinner, not going to a pub to go to a pub. Just don't have the time...

Pub (just serves beer & wine), almost never. About once a week I'll hit a brewpub, which is a brewery with a bar & restaurant attached. "They say" the pub scene is dying. I actually don't know of any pubs in the area, but I don't go to regular bars/taverns either, as they stink and serve BMC.

I can say I've never seen a place that would meet the British definition of a pub.

Pub, its been a while. Probably a month of so. Just to expensive. Bar's on the other had just about every weekend. Although I have had to start drinking Whiskey because I can not drink Bud light any more, and refuse to spend 5 bucks on a half way decent beer.
