Buskers Bar is a popular bar and music venue located on Temple Bar, Dublin. The usual suspects are available on tap but I did like the arrangement of the taps.

A meal at the Sint Stefanus Monastery in Ghent, Belgium. If Augustinian monks eat and drink like this, sign me up! The beer featured is St Stefanus from Brouwerij Van Steenberge.

Beer Selections at The Owl House

Draft beer selections at The Owl House. This is one of my favorite restaurants/bars in the Rochester area. If you haven't been here yet, what are you waiting for? Amazing food, beer and cocktails. Lovely to see them keeping it local with both 3HB and Genesee beers on tap.

Alchemist Brewery

Alchemist Pub & Brewery Ouroboros Double IPA. The beer from this brewery is usually draft only, but the brewer personally bottled a few specifically for the Media Luncheon at the 2010 GABF. I was lucky enough to attend and try this amazing brew, as well as hear the brewer speak about it. If you live in Vermont, go give this brewery a try!

The Victory brewpub in Hereford, England is unique in that its bar is contained within a large galleon that comes complete with cannons. Owned by the Hereford Brewery (previously called the Spinning Dog Brewery), the galleon dates back to a refit from the early 90s when the pub was owned by the Jolly Roger Brewery.

Simpson's Tavern is a traditional English Chop House that has stood on this site since 1757. Tucked away in a narrow alleyway, the premises were originally built as two houses in the late 17th century and then converted into a chop house and coffee shop. Coincidentally, it is a stones throw from where the first coffee shop in London was located. Located near the Bank of England, tourists are few and far between and like every other pub in the area, it is closed on Weekends. Predominently a restaurant, there is also a small bar selling two ales.

Ettaler

Ettaler Curator Doppelbock. A fantastically yummy beer. Be sure to check out the brewery history here. Picture taken late at night at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.
