Does your favorite bar have house rules posted?

If you happen to frequent The Merry Ploughboy in Rathfarnham, Dublin, Ireland than your answer would be yes.

A list of ten rules posted in the Merry Ploughboy have begun to make their rounds on the internet, with over 1 million views so far. 

Now most of these rules are either tongue-in-cheek or common knowledge for experienced bartenders, but the list is pretty spot on and worth a look.

Here's a couple of my favorites:

  •  Persons drinking a pint of Guinness before it has fully settled will be immediately barred.
  •  Telling lies is unacceptable, you may however grossly exaggerate.
  •  If there is ever any confusion, the fuller beer is yours.

You can see the complete list on the Irish Central Website.

Being a huge fan of Guinness myself, my favorite is definitely #3 and I feel that rule should apply to bartenders as well. There's nothing worse than a barkeep who doesn't know how to properly pour a Guinness (but that's a story for another day).

What are your favorite rules on the list? Do you have any to add that didn't make it?
