Default Why lord, why?

I'm sitting at a TGI Friday's bar right now watching some of the worst beer pours of my life. Is proper pouring technique really hard to attain? It feels like I'm watching some awful parent beat their child for no reason.

I once had a waitress pour my Dogfish Head 90min IPA bottle almost vertically into the glass to "increase the foam for aroma". At $8 a bottle, I was not impressed with half flat beer. Luckily I was in a good mood before and chalked it up to her being new.

You can get Stone at TGI Fridays? We're limited to all the light and ice beers you could ever want.

I think it's up to the store manager/owner what/number of beers they can have over the usual. Most of the ones around here have at least some variety. Even had the manager come over to my table to ask how I liked the beer....since he ordered it because he likes it....

My place is worse, you can usually only get bitter at LGI Fridays or any other night.

That's what you get for going to TGIFridays instead of one of the myriad of better choices...

The last time I was in a TGI it was actually a Buffalo Wild Wings or a Ruby Tuesdays. I can hardly tell the difference. Wifey likes Cracker Barrel, but she has now given up on my foot stamping when I complain about having no beer and ultra-bland food with a bunch of old people and tatty crap all over the walls. At least I can identify the difference in a Cracker Barrel though.
