"After spending any amount of time in a European pub, it is easy to feel like such a newbie on the planet as a U.S. citizen. I remember one instance from a pub in Ireland that had been built in the 1600s, when I realized how long ago those stones had been set, I vowed to never drink a lame drink at a restaurant chain again, but to set out for some places with real character. Still, there's no reason to be ashamed about our pubs’ relative youth. Here are the ten oldest bars in the United States to help you go back in time to when your ancestors met and accidentally spawned future generations."
