Subject: Re: England and Ireland trip report
I was in Ireland for about four weeks this summer and I can attest to the lack of local ales - but the Irish make up for it with the pride they have for the national beers ;) Of course, I spend most of my time in Galway and Dublin - these big cities pubs were often staffed by younger people and their beer of choice was usually Budweiser! It's an exotic import to them.
