Like bubble baths and champagne waterfalls, Irish pubs are known for their suds and their suds’ ability to attract rubber duckies. Frolic in froth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Ryans Public House in Brookfield.
Ryans Public House makes meals merry with Irish and American comfort fare and more than 70 beers and whiskeys from around the globe. Guests can devour a little bit of Celtic culture with an appetizer of corned-beef bites—mini open-faced sandwiches with swiss cheese and horseradish-cream sauce ($6.95)—or a whole lot with an authentic fish 'n' chips dinner ($9.75). A hearty shepherd's pie ($8.95) sates meat-and-potatoes cravings, and fish tacos hook diners with a double-lure of Mexican street corn and avocado-cream sauce ($9.95). The Chiappetta burger brings the bounty of two meals, sandwiching bacon, grilled onions, and a half-pound of Angus beef between two regulation-size grilled-cheese sandwiches ($9.95).
At the bar, guests can choose from more than a dozen drafts and more than 25 bottled brews from Mexico, Germany, Holland, and beyond. In beer-garden sun rays and fireplace cozies, pints of Smithwick's ($5) battle heady pours of Guinness ($5.50) for the title of Ireland's best, and Irish whiskeys—including Clontarf, Feckin, and Tyrconnell ($5 average/pour)—turn the pub’s HDTV-displayed golf tournaments into assuredly spirited events.
