This Astoria Irish pub is miles away from its prefab midtown brethren. Bartenders and patrons alike are mindful to keep the Pogues, U2, and Van Morrison on the jukebox. Pictures of festive regulars and the bar’s softball team intermingle with irreverent decorations like a porcelain statue of the “fat lady” singing topless. The twelve beers on tap include a few domestic microbrews like a Brooklyn seasonal, but otherwise are composed of the expected Irish imports. And while it might be a cliché to acknowledge the Guinness draft in any discussion of an Irish pub, this pour really is as good as it gets: The beer and head are kept entirely separate, and the latter rises proudly above the rim of its twenty-ounce glass like a puck-shaped scoop of Guinness frozen yogurt. And best of all, every third drink is on the house. It doesn’t get much friendlier than that.
