General Beer Links
to the Pub: A guide to British pub etiquette: A fascinating
online book describe the unwritten rules of British pubs. Despite the
book's claimed parochial scope, much of the behaviour described can
be observed in Prague, Bamberg, Antwerp or Amsterdam.
Here's a piece of great advice :
"Whether you are male or female, and whatever the sex
or social background of your native companions, the words “It’s my
round – what are you having?” will always be appreciated as a friendly
gesture. This line may not be in your phrase book, but it is one of
the most useful sentences in the English language."
Published by the Social Issues Research
Centre. (An impressive-sounding organisation I [sort of] hope
is just a few blokes down a pub.)
