Bars and Pour Houses

A new pour house is opening in my county where they'll make craft beer, people will gather, and proudly drink beer with local musicians playing. This is now considered being cultured. They aren't bars or pubs but pour houses.

When I was a kid, the pour house was clandestine back room at the Amoco Country Store in Bragtown, where poor old sots gathered around the wood stove to drink Budweiser. They were talked about in an unfavorable manner.
