This Website is dedicated to all those who enjoy the pleasures and benefits of the world's greatest beverage, beer. It is produced by two ex-pat Brits who miss English pubs, and are intrigued by the character and variety of American bars and taverns. The nearest a Brit can get to an English pub in the United States is by visiting an Irish pub, and thankfully there has been an upsurge in these in recent years, particularly in New York City. One no longer has to visit Boston or environs to find a good Irish pub that has such brews as Caffreys, Boddingtons, or Tetleys on draft.

Water, Barley, Hops and YeastThe authors of this undertaking live in eastern Connecticut, where there are few Irish or English pubs. However, in recent years American bars have at last began to introduce decent beers on tap. Some American microbreweries produce passable beers, but many are brewed with too many hops, and are too bitter to the taste. We will call them 'vinegar beers'. Lite beer is not really beer, and the big breweries are laughing all the way to the bank. Why don't lite drinkers purchase one regular 12 oz beer, and ask for a 12 oz glass of water, and then they can have two lite beers for the price of one regular beer? Other American beers can be impregnated with disgusting flavours such as vanilla, lemon, pumpkin and orange. These are below consideration, and are not included in our ratings system.

The bars included will initially be in Windham and New London Counties, Connecticut. If you know of a bar which you would like to be included, please e-mail us. We will only be featuring local bars and clubs, such as ethnic clubs, and VFWs. Where possible we'll add an exterior and interior photograph and some local colour and history, and if you'd like to include more information, let us know.
