Tank’s Favorite Fuel Station.

Once, quite a while ago, I was dragged to the City, with a promise to be shown to a real Irish pub. Until then, I hadn’t had a slightest idea what Irish pub really is. As it turned out to be, quite an interesting place it is. Places name is “McSorley’s Old Ale House”. And old it is, established in 1854 still standing strong, serving only two kinds of beer.

What they have, is a  dark and a light beer, brewed by micro brewery of their own. Dark is my favorite, with distinct malt flavor and full body, packs a descent kick as well. Light – is a Pilsner type beer, quite refreshing in the summer time. They serve cheese, crackers and onions for a snack, they make burgers and chips as well. Should warn you about the mustard – it is a real deal, nothing like Dijon at all, it is super strong. Must taste to every visitor!

As long as I can remember myself  setting my foot there, this place is packed, every time. For instance, going there Friday evening, you most definitely will be drinking your beer standing upright in the crowd, wedged between the bar stand and several other drinkers, while being deafened by the noise. Also you most definitely shall enjoy going to the loo. It is in the very end of the hall, and to get there you have to force your way through the crowd, which might be quite complicated if you are drunk. OK, so you made it to the door, now you have to open it, minding that there’s only two or three feet between the door and next table.

Floor deserves the description of it’s paragraph. It is almost completely covered by wooden shavings, never seen one like this ever in my entire life.

What shall you definitely enjoy is the interior, walls almost completely covered with old photographs, articles, and autographs of famous visitors. Everything mentioned above is covered with a thick layer of dust and soot, nobody cleans it, for a good reason, for it is an undivided piece of the interior.

Another prominent thing  is a cast-iron wood stove standing right in the middle of the hall with a smoke pipe stretching all along the ceiling. They actually fire it up in winter time. It is such a pleasure sitting right next to it while sipping  a cold beer. After a little while it becomes too hot there and you look for a cooler place.

And of course, people there. Public differs a lot, at any given time you can meet anyone there from a local student to a tourist and from a janitor to a city worker or a businessman from Wall Street. I certainly enjoy talking to blokes there.
