BUNRATTY??? :? - anyone else wanna take that one?????  My vocabulary is limited  in non-vulgar terms to describe the horror that is "The Lazy B"


It is not mead at all. its actually white wine flavored with honey. the bottle, sez so.


Mage,

The jackasses actually DO have a real mead: same bottle with "EXPORT" stamped on it.  It is equally swilllike-but in it's own dreadful, miserable way.

Got a case of yours with my name on it, Bro???????? :wink:  :lol:

Treon,
I believe you're referring to Middleton Irish Whiskey (which was mentioned above). It's made by Jameson.

Oooh...Hrrmmm,

For the sweet tooth, Mead.

Day in, day out, Guiness would take the prize, if there was a pub nearby that poured a decent pint.

Since THAT's not happenin any time soon...Scotch. Single Malt.

My home away from barracks was Kelly's Irish Pub in Bad Kreuznack. The owner and all the barmaids were good friends of mine the whole time I was there. There's nothing like drinking with the Irish. Theyt never want to leave early. ::guinness::

Right you are Treon!

We do, however, 'close' the pub early so we don't have to mind the constable whilst we imbibe, inebriate, intoxicate, and exaggerate.
By the way wasn't there a Burger King 'round them barracks? A Yank friend of mine used to work at one....He now owns a pub in Chicago named The Prodigal Son. I painted the bar murals and designed the logo.


Leela's a good point as well.

A decent Guinness at Faire is like a saws-all in a grocery store: no one knows how it got on the shelves, but hot damn don't you just NEED it! My only question is-- who's bringing all this delicious whiskey? and where can I fence me some?

Can't say I've had Bunratty on this side of the pond, but it's tasty enough in County Clare-- perhaps some sort of export additives or procedures mar the taste for the Yanks.


I've never had it over there (not been, yet..) but I can attest to the fact that it sucks here. ;)

Quote from: "Paddy O'Furniture"

Any Guinness at SW?


not likely.. sorry.  Sam Adams is the best you'll get.  There's pubs in town tho.....

Aye, there was a BK in BK. I still can't eat Burger King because of it.
You're right about the Guinness not being the same here, though. I don't know how it is on th Emerald Isle, but I know it was better in Germany than it is here. Over there they have laws against tainting beer with preservatives. Here they require it.
The only time I was in Berlin was for the Love Parade. I didn't make it out of the downtown area.

I was actually out with a friend trying a new pub once and my friend ordered a Guiness.  The bartender started trying to spoon the head out of the glass!  :x  My friend got outraged, I fell off my stool, and we procedded to give the bartender an education before leaving and vowing never to return!  I mean, damn!!!!

Oh Yeah, the 'plastiguinness', no Irish lace, the head looks like fish-eyes... a disgrace! Might as well drink the Yank Piss-- Miller, Pabst, etc.
You've obviously had a real Budweiser...Far FAR different from the carbonated bile served here....

Actually, I only drink ales and stouts. Regular pilsner makes me sick after just one. A guy who used to work for AB suggested that it might just be the preservatives they use here that I'm alergic to, but I just can't stomach the style enough to try a foriegn one.
BTW I never liked whiskey except for that Middleton's. But $110 a bottle? Any other whiskeys that are maybe half as good that you could recomend?

I've never even heard of that one. Was she sunbathing nude and fell asleep?
I don't know if I can find that here or not, but I'll look. I have a good reason for not liking whiskey before Middleton's. All I was exposed to was Jack Daniels and Jim Beam. ::puke::

Bourbon??? If you're a masochist you'll drink it to suit your fetish.

I'll start off a Yank...

Next time you're in a decent watering hole, ask for a Jameson up.

Now, as an ancient bar-man, I can tell you, what the bottle says does not mean what the bottle contains. If you have the green available to tip the bartender, ask for a fresh bottle. If you don't you may get what's called "rail" or "swill"... Have the said bar-person pour the said liquid from the fresh bottle into a snifter, swill it around  pretending to look for viscosity, check the nose, then take a generous sip... Don't 'shoot' it like a Yank student....Wait, we are in America: take a generous sip, say "smooth", then chug the rest like a Yank student.

Rinse and Repeat.

1. My favorite drink is Mead, hands down. There's a reason why i'm the mead goddess. nuff said.
2. When not at faire, i drink Bunratty sometimes (yes i'll admit it) only cause the mead found in NYC is actually WORSE.  Chaucers i drink like water cause its what's served in NYRF and I'm used to it so it ends up being fine. I don't like the mead in MDRF.
3. There's a place in downtown Manhattan that serves about 40? 50? 60? i forget the number they brag but that many different beers on tap.  ALL in Styrofoam cups. including the Guinness

Yup, yup.

A Reverend Horton Heat CD release party was in some Dallas Bar I happened to attend a year or so ago. It was "glasses at the bar, styro if you're traveling"  I happened to be escorting a registrar from the Dallas Museum of Art at the time, and she came fully loaded with flask of whiskey and all... an accidental wench. I still love her for it. Ellen is that you?

We have a bar (the one that serves the best Guinness, BTW) that has 36 beers on tap and 99 (you'll never guess this one) in bottles. ::al::

36 taps? That's 6 towers an' a fock load of lines. 4X4 is even big...

 check out the Prodigal Son in Chicago...

not to scoff or belittle, but most bars in NYC worth their salt, can boast the bottles... and the patrons are usualy enticed to finish one of each to gain a reward...

However, according to the new enforcers, we can't smoke in NYC not even Captain Black from a pipe... so sticking to a bar of late has been sticky...


If not  for the Rennies here, I'd be heading back home...

At this place if you finish all 135, you get a personalized pewter mug. I don't go there often enought, though. It's too far away.
I live in the city, and it's out in the suburbs.
