There's a little pub I frequent here in Austin (Texas) that offers
pints of Guinness (US pints, not Imperial) for $2.00 between the
hours of 4-10pm, then $2.75 the rest of the evening. Of course, *all*
their draught beer is that price, but Guinness is the only one that
counts! (grin) And most important, if you want one of the mass
produced US beers (Bud, Miller, et al), you have to go elsewhere;
they only serve quality brews.
