    I remember a while ago there was a thread talking about old pubs. I'm back in Ireland for a little while and was walking around Kilkenny when I stopped in a little pub off the road. Established in the 1300s, there's some pretty cool history behind the pub. The original owner was sentenced to be burned for witchcraft, one of the first times in Europe and was snuck out of the country.

    I did, and it is good! The factory isn't far from where I'm staying, so it's about as fresh as you can get. I haven't been here in years, but it's great. My girlfriend pointed out that every morning all you see is beer being delivered to all the different pubs. Truck loads of kegs, it's pretty funny really.

    A hot steak is better than a cold chop.

    That is nice.

    I had a pitcher of beer on monday, at a bar that was recently remodeled because it looked twenty years old.
    Now the place looks like a corporate bar and grill. They freak ed it up.

    I do, on a camera though. When I get back to the states (in September) I'll be going through them and may share a few.
