20 Oz Beers For Less than $4? Sign Me Up!

I’m always interested in exploring new bars in the neighborhood, so I headed over to Kinsale Tavern on Friday night with my boyfriend for some drinks and bar food. It was anything but rowdy on a Friday, but that actually suited us just fine because we wanted to talk and be able to hear one another.

We sat in the back and decided to be fatties, so we ordered wings, fries, and mozzaralla sticks. Kinsale Tavern has pretty good drink prices in general and they ALWAYS have 20 oz drafts of Michelob Ultra or Yuengling for $3.75, so I know I’ll never go thirsty there. They have a bunch of beers on tap (think Sierra Nevada, Newcastle) and most are $5.75 for a 20 oz pint, so not too shabby. I opted for a Michelob Ultra and Paul had the Liberty Ale.

As for the food, I was impressed with both the quantity and quality of it. For $8 we were served 12 decent size wings (pretty meaty, not all bones), and they were tasty too! I rarely say this, but they tasted better than they looked. They looked like generic wings slathered in gooey sauce, but they were actually really delicious and spicy. As for the fries and mozzarella sticks, they were fairly typical and didn’t blow us away or anything, but they didn’t disappoint either.  It’s not top of the line bar food here, but it’s above average and definitely a good value.

In total we had 3 beers + 3 apps = $40 with tip, which we were quite happy with. It’s also apparently a huge sports bar, particularly for soccer and rugby, so it likely gets packed during those times. However I liked it being a little quiet earlier on a weekend night and I’ll surely return again for drinks and/or food.
