As much as I've come to want to visit "the isles" I've yet
to have the opportunity, so I can't speak to the British /
Scottish / Irish pub cuisine. Never one to shy away from a
good gravy or a spot of grease with my food, I might actually
have a taste for it!

I can, however, attest to certain knowledge that the owner
of the Brick Store is a most serious aficionado of the brewing
   His honeymoon vacation was spent Pub Crawling in Ireland.

(I know this transferred his family videos of the trip in
the course of working at Project Video in Avondale Estates.)
