Murphy's law: you can never find it on tap in Vancouver
Actually, I'm hoping my post title is wrong. The SO had a few wee pints of Murphy's on our recent San Francisco sojourn (hope to post on that board this w'end if you're interested) which has reminded him of how much he likes it. Anywhere have this dark elixir on tap in our fair city?
Don't know about Vancouver, but I have had Murphy's at The Irish Times on Government Street at the top of Bastion Square in Victoria.
On a visit I had ordered a pint of Guiness and the bartender inquired if I had ever had Murphy's. I loved this stout. Great taste without quite the same bitter bite that Guiness can have.
If they serve it at the Irish Times perhaps The Penny Farthing and The Bard and the Banker also serve it as I think they are associated.
I inquired about getting it here in Edmonton from an acquaintance who owns some pubs here but there was a problem in getting it.
