Default What's more depressed than the average Irish Pub?

Man, talk about you've seen one you've seen 'em all. Same friggin' crap beer on tap at every one of them. Here in NYC there are about a million of them and everytime I walk into one (because there is no craft beer pub in the area) I'm immediately depressed by the same tired old atmosphere and even worse selection of Bud/Bud Light/Smithwicks/Stella/Guiness/Harp/Blue Moon on tap.

Same thing down south, partner. I believe we've entered into a genre of Irish Bars. The bar down the street is actually owned by 2 Irish-born brothers and they have added Woodchuck and 1 local brewery's Golden Ale. Selection sucks but the girls are hot.

Yep. Same old Irish name that is probably made up, too.

I just could not resist...


Anyways, If you do not like Irish beer/atmosphere, why go into the place? GG Stop off and buy a 6er of what ya like and quityerbitchin...or RDWHAHB.

Yeah the Scotch selection is great.

I like to go up to the 3rd floor put the menu on the dart board and let fate choose my next beer.
