and B is also for Bumstead's Pub

Last week, I had the great fortune of using my good friend G's timeshare in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Thanks, G--you're the best!

Myrtle Beach is a wonderful town with a lot to see and do, especially for families, with Hard Rock amusement park, plenty of intricate miniature and regular golf courses, water parks, of course the ocean, beach, waves, swimming, kiting, etc., and reminiscent of Daytona Beach with high rises fronting the ocean along Ocean Boulevard.

While in town I struck gold twice when I managed to find Bumstead's Pub one block in from Ocean Boulevard on Mister Joe White Ave., near where North Ocean Boulevard changes to South Ocean Boulevard. (The streets descend 29th, 28th, 27th etc. coming down North Boulevard from the north, then after reaching the midpoint, ascend 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. while traveling south along South Ocean Boulevard.) Roughly.

This dark and handsome English pub-style place has a decent set of taps and a wonderful bottle collection which I was able to try out first hand. The food menu is nice, inexpensive, and tasty too. The bar maid was attentive and most importantly not at all unpleasant to look at.

I had a quick Abita TURBODOG Dark Brown Ale which went down nicely after a long day in the sun on the road. The beer menu boasts probably over 100 bottles of wide variety, sure to please all beer tastes.
