    Almost no one drinks bottled beer out here. (at least in Bars/Pubs). Almost everywhere you go they serve in glass pints too, none of that plastic cup stuff.

    The only bottle beer I drink is Bridgeport Ale or Sierra Nevada.

    I like the feel of a pint and the copper hue.

    Frosted Mugs are a no-no in the beer circuit, in fact most beers aren't as cold as you'd expect (from our past upbringing) and many a bartender has laughed at our request for a few more degrees south on the IPA.

    With that mentioned I forwarn you warm beer haters... stay away from the offerings that are "Cask" or "Hand Pumped" Beers.

    Wow, the "beer circuit".

    I had no idea.

    I guess my dream of turning pro is a little further removed than I'd originally thought.

    I am no beer snob, but coul dnot agree more with this.

    Speaking of Yuengling, their light is not half bad. In the Buffalo area, Labatt is the beer you see most of and the one I will tend to order if nothing else seems interesting.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    There is nearby bar that also houses a small pizza joint nearby. Once while waiting for my pizza I sat at the bar and ordered a Harp. I love Harp. It was some kind of buck draft night or something on domestics, so due to the volume, I guess, they served it in a plastic cup. Disgraceful. Now I just get a domestic in a bottle to avoid that situation.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    The beer circuit is to be avoided, they are something out of Lord of the Rings.

    I like Harp too, although they made fun of me for drinking it in Ireland.

    I met some sales reps from our British office in a local bar. They made fun of me for drinking Newcastle.

    They were drinking Bud and Corona.

    Maybe it wasn't just cause you were drinking Harp.

    I think anyone who makes fun of another person's beer choice deserves a slap.

    That, or you probably could have made fun of their teeth.

    They said it's what hobos drink in England. Then they took big gulps of clear-bottled skunk water (Corona) and proclaimed it "lovely."

    It was all part of a painfully transparent and ultimately futile attempt to needle the "gun-totin', Bush-lovin' American" (me). If they only knew...

    Of course, I've talked to other, nicer Brits who have said they enjoy Newcastle and Guinness.
