Harry's Country Club


Heaven... I'm in heaven,
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak.
And I seem to find the happiness I seek,
When I'm drinkin' at Harry's week to week.

Isn't that how the song goes? Well it should because Harry's Country Club is a wonderful bar evocative of all things heavenly. Fabulous tap choices..check, Wonderful martini choices..check, good menu..check, great happy hour specials..check, a bearded red headed bartender..check. Harry's has it all.

While sitting at the bar not one, not two, not three but four different people ordered a PBR in the can (the cylindrical thing that holds beer not the bathroom). But I preferred the draught beer specials, sticking to my rule of only drinking draught beer when there is wonderful beer on tap and Harry's definitely has good taps, featuring Kronenbourg 1664, Newcastle Brown, all the Boulevard brothers and a healthy dose of New Belgium.

I would have stuck to my plan too if it weren't for those meddling Croats. Bearded red headed bartender was putting some bottles in the icebucket of a beer I'd only heard of from looking at the happy hour specials. I asked if that was the Karlovacko, he said yes. Wes' eyes lit up like when I tell my daughter there's a cookie in her future, he got so excited I think he may have wet himself a little (milk or lemonade not determined). "I haven't had that since Croatia, we've got to stay!" So, stay we did and it was well worth it. Karlovacko is the best pivo I've ever had and one of the best beers (if you speak Croatian that is a funny joke, if you don't, well tough luck).
