Coaster: Great Guinness Toast 1998

I really need to work on my photography skills for these coaster posts. Anyway...

This coaster is from 10 years ago. K and I actually went and participated in this toast at a little Irish bar called The Fly's Tie in Jacksonville Beach, FL.

The beer situation in Jacksonville in the late nineties was pretty dire. You could get some decent beer at a few upscale specialty shops but you could forget about that when you went out to eat or drink.

The Fly's Tie was not far from our apartment and at the very least took pride in their taps. Nothing earth shattering, mostly Guinness, Bass, the occasional Sam Adams seasonal, some cider and Harp lager. But it was always a quality pint at a fair price in a very traditional Irish pub atmosphere. Good times.
