It’s time for a moderate, even handed rant. Today is Good Friday and that means that licensed premises in Ireland cannot serve alcohol. There are ways around it of course, but that’s the law of the land. I probably go out one Friday in the month and I have plenty of bottles at home in my beer cave so this arcane law really doesn’t affect me. BUT I would still like to see it abolished. Church and state are still somewhat intertwined but that’s slowly unravelling. I know it’s only one day and all that but I’d like to be able to go out IF I wanted to. I went out for lunch and met some friends, we all had meat. The waitress informed us that despite the numerous fish specials most diners were ordering meaty meals. In the same way I think the bars should be open. If you choose for religious or personal reasons not to drink that’s fine, but everyone should be free to make their own mind up.
The beer in the picture is Flying Dog’s Underdog Atlantic Lager. It’s refreshing and has a bit of a bite. Proper lager.
Picked up the beer in The Winehouse, Trim
