Cheap (er) or different pints at Pubs?
I don't know about you, but I'm getting so tired of the selection of beers on tap in MTL's pubs. I freqent Ye Olde Orchard, McKibbin's, Dundee's, Irish Embassy, O'Regans...and the like and the selection of beers is almost identical. Stella/Heineken/Carlsberg + the Irish (Guiness, Kilkenny, Smithwick's and Harp). Also, I'm a little tired of spending $8 on a pint that I could buy at the SAQ for 2.
Does anyone know of any pubs that serve a different variety of beers? For instance, something English (other than Newcastle) or Scottish or just different on tap? I've yet to find a pub that serves Boddington's, which is my favourite ale. Anyway, if you have any suggestions for somewhere with different beers on tap and maybe something a bit cheaper, I'd love to know!!!! (No brutopia please...)
ps preferably downtown but not essential!
The Burgundy Lion has Boddies on tap ... but you're still paying $8 for the privilege. There's a couple of places that serve Tetleys but they're escaping me at the moment.
If you're at O'Regans and drinking the Guiness then shame on you!!!! They serve Murphy's Stout, the pride of Cork. A much better pint imho.
biere et compagnie has a very nice selection of beer i don't remember the list though, lots of import
le barouf had alot on tap
