A pint of plain
Bars (Drinking establishments)
Shhhhhh. . . . Don’t tell, but this is really a book about globalization, not about “yer only man” (i.e., the well-pulled pint of porter). With “Oirish” pubs cropping up in every burg and burb, what has happened to the originals? American emigrant Barich starts looking around his new neighborhood in Dublin for the pub of his dreams, where the pints are frothy and the conversation lofty. He finds the locals, both the pubs and their patrons, displaced by glamorous versions of themselves, and he discovers that he has unwittingly become part of a global plot to replace the real with the faux.
