Your best bet for good beer (and we're not talkin' Bud here, kids) on Clearwater Beach.. The Scene Burgundry walls and dark wood accents, floral embroidered couches that look straight out of grandma's house, and pastoral scenes of England on the wall. Not the most authentic European pub you'll ever stumble across, but cozy all the same.
The Dish So you're on the beach, but the thought of a pastel-colored, sickeningly sweet daiquiri makes you wanna retch. You've almost given up on finding a bar that serves up good hearty brews, resigning yourself to watery domestic drafts. If you're down by the south end of the island, however, you're in luck. Tucked away in an innocuous strip mall, it's easy to miss Big Ben. A locals' favorite, kick back with a pint of Tetley's, Bass, Murphy's Irish Stout, or Guinness. Craving vittles from across the pond? Peruse their menu of pasties, pies, and Scotch eggs.
