Some people in the trade are experts when it comes to making a point in just 140 characters.
If you can wade through the sea of self-aggrandising opinions, get beyond the echo-chambers and force yourself over the images of meals getting cold when they should be getting eaten, then you can actually find some useful titbits on Twitter.
Pithy comments, well-constructed argument, gags and good old fashioned insight are all there to be seen. Here are some of are favourite tweeters.
Imagine the best pub in the world. Then times it by a billion. Those aren't our words but rather the confident (and slightly edited to avoid offence at such an early stage of the article) claim of Hackney's hilarious boozer. Musings on life, music, Craig David, pubs and lots and lots of booze from a Tweeter that will brighten any dull moment on a shift.
FYI: for the price of a gym membership, you could take a skipping rope to the pub twice a week and drink wine while you work out.— The Dolphin (@The_Dolphin_Pub) January 2, 2015
Only those who do the job can understand the unique frustrations of working behind a bar. More than 30,000 people follow and contribute to this feed to laugh at situations many will be able to relate to. It's OK folks. You are not alone.
To the people who tap things to get attention at the bar. I'd very much like to remove your teeth with rusty pliers! @Bar_staff_probs— Martin Palfreyman (@Pregstar) March 21, 2017
Only been working 2 hours and if one more person demands a shamrock on a Guinness I might commit murder @Bar_staff_probs— Jessica Jade (@JessicaJJoyce) March 17, 2017
The award-winning beer writing duo are insightful, amusing and not afraid to prick pomposity. They are also like the history teacher whose lessons you loved (not the one who droned on while you stared out of the window).
2017 problems: thinking excitedly, 'Ooh, a new micropub!' only to realise it's actually a vape shop. (Us from 20 years ago: "What?") pic.twitter.com/HWPFlEisnP— Boak and Bailey (@BoakandBailey) March 31, 2017
Landlords take note. Many, many people do not want their soup served in a shoe, their breakfast on a roof tile or their dinner in a bloody hat. Thank you.
Beer is great. Craft beer is great. Pompous people who want to be pretentious and tedious about a product that is created for social enjoyment can just jolly well do one. Go on, hop it.
Shocked to discover keg-conditioning has just been invented after many years of already existing.— The Craft Wanker (@TheCraftWanker) July 26, 2016
See above and then see these guys. Proof that beer should be enjoyed and not taken too seriously.
We're only stuck with this stupid brewery because of a typo when we tried selling a load of artisan bees.— Pilot Beer (@pilotbeeruk) March 4, 2017
Let it hereby be known that, given the opportunity, the directors of Pilot Beer Ltd would happily sell out to the man in a heartbeat.— Pilot Beer (@pilotbeeruk) March 16, 2017
While we are on the subject of brilliant brewers out there on the Twittersphere... Hellhound is unfiltered, funny and not afraid to ruffle a few feathers.
Lovely day at HellHound Towers, almost tropical.— HellHound Brewery (@HellHoundBeer) February 22, 2017
Pop by for several pints of stout with a foie gras side dish. Bring your own fork, though. pic.twitter.com/BEUQMTXVzB
