So, here are some reasons and tips of how to tip your bartender.

  1. Tip big on the first round

Depending upon the bar, leave 50-100% to make a good impression. Don’t make a big deal about leaving a good tip. Even if you don’t leave large tip on first round, leave something at least.

  1. Tip according to your drink

In case of beer or wine tip between $1-2, in case you order cocktail tip between $2-3, depending upon how much your bartender spends his energy in making drink for you.

  1. Leave a tip for every drink

If paying in cash, leave tip for every drink i.e. $1 a drink, or $2 for nicer bars. If paying with card, 20% of your tab at the end of the night.

  1. Don’t bargain with your bartender

Don’t try to ask bartender free drinks in exchange of tips. This will definitely leave bad impression. 

So, now let’s see why to tip your bartender.

  1. If you tip your bartender in a proper way they will make sure that you’re having good time at the bar.

  2. He’ll make sure that the next time you visit you don’t have to wait much.

  3. If the bar is overcrowded, he’ll make sure you don’t have to stand in queue for your drinks.

  4. He’ll always address you with your name and will always greet you at every visit.

  5. He’ll great you with offers or complimentary drinks at every visit.

So, next time tip your bartender in a proper way and make them happy. Cheers!

PIZZA AND BEER ALWAYS A BEST CHOICE WHEN YOU’RE ENJOYING AT A PUB

We all know wine and cheese are always considered to be perfect when you are sitting with your friends gossiping at Friday night. Instead try pizza and beer nights, trust me you’re going to love it. You still get goodness of cheese with euphoria of beer pairings.

Certain pizzas and beers were always meant for each other. These are some of suggested pizza and beer pairings that you should definitely try out.

Margherita and Pale Ale

If you’re one of those who love margherita above others then this pair is perfect for you. The ale’s malt flavour will be like a topping to your pizza’s toasty crust, balancing the acidity of the tomatoes. The lightness of the beer with subtle flavour of mozzarella will go just perfect.

Pepperoni and IPA

If you’re a meat lover’s pie and always pick pepperoni, then always choose India Pale Ale. The saltiness of the meat and bitterness of IPA will go hand in hand. 

Hawaiian and Fruit Ale

Hawaiian has always been the choice of most of the people. The sweetness of a strawberry, grapefruit, or cherry ale compliments the pineapple toppings of Hawaiian giving great contrast to salty hem.

Mushroom and Spinach and Stout

What could be better than mushroom and spinach that too when paired with a stout. The sweetness of a milk or chocolate stout adds an amazing mouth freshening flavour to mushroom and spinach.

Cheese and Wheat Ale

Last but again a classy pair of cheese and Wheat Ale. This is great for those who ball on a budget and rely on stuff to get them through the weekend. This pie is plain in nature, light and not so happy beers allow it to shine, especially when varieties of cheese are used.
