Embittered

The daddy-in-law is a bitter drinker. By which I mean he likes to drink pints of brown frothy beer in preference to the light, golden, flavourless gnat's pee that is understood to be 'beer' by most of the world.

We went to Hatta today, sat down in a bar at the Hatta Fort Hotel and asked about the beer selection. 'Foster's, Heineken, Kronenbourg, Carlsberg and Stella. All in cans or bottles'. Ah, says the d-i-l, what do you have on draught? 'Well, sir, we only have draught beer in the Coffee Shop upstairs'. So we struggle upstairs to the Coffee Shop. 'Tell us about your draught beer, please' we say. 'Ah, we have Heineken.' 'Go on'. 'That's it, sir, we only have Heineken on draught'.

We relocated to a third restaurant, drank draught Heineken and enjoyed a pleasant meal.
