Books Info:

A Pint of Plain free pdf When Bill Barich moved to Dublin, he began searching for a traditional pub to serve as his local. Although he had no shortage of choices, he had trouble finding one that measured up to the archetypal ideal. As he roams from hectic urban pubs to their dwindling rural counterparts, he chronicles the state of the 'Irish' pub today, both in Ireland itself and all over the world. Entertaining, charming and full of insight, "A Pint of Plain" chronicles Barich's quest for the perfect pint, at the same time examining Irish culture at a time of great change.
