No tacos? No Strongbow?!

Last night, I went to slake my steak taco craving at a chain taco joint that I won’t name ’cause I don’t want to have that conversation, and discovered to my dismay that they were out of soft tortillas for tacos. (How do you let that happen?) Then, after making peace with the idea of steak tacos in hard shells instead, I was given chicken tacos.

I know. Life is hard.

So now I’m back at Hand in Hand, where the wife and I came specifically for Strongbows and rocket salads (and, to be fair, the free wifi), and the waitress has just broken the news to us: No more Strongbow. Ever. In its place they’ll be serving — sigh — Woodchuck. So there’s a lot of pressure now on the fishes, the chips and the candied pecans we’ve got coming. If they don’t change my mind, this may be my last visit to Hand in Hand. I mean, I like it here, but I know me pretty well and I’m likely to skip a place that can’t get me a Black Velvet with Strongbow in favor of one that can.

You know the Prince William Tavern? Or the Spotted Dog? I don’t. I haven’t been to those places ’cause I’ve been coming to Hand in Hand. Will they all be out of Strongbow now? What other British-style pub-type joints should I be trying out in Atlanta? You have to tell me.

Here comes the food. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    I’m afraid Derek Lawford Pubs owns most of the brit pubs around.

    i don’t know if they have Strongbow, but the Milltown Arms in Cabbagetown (on Carroll St.) is a great little pub and the jukebox kicks ass. go there and eat the chip buddy (tater tot sandwich) and skip out on the monotonous sameness that are the Lawford pubs.

    It doesn’t exactly qualify as a British Pub (more of a dirt bar really), but I believe The Local has Strongbow on tap.

    brewhouse has strongbow
    also 6 ft under – not a brit pub but OK bar & fish house
    also churchills in college park has it I believe
    James joyce irish pub in Avondale may have it too, and I believe Fado carries it
