Use of "run-off" in pubs 10 years 9 months ago #13


If any bar owners wish to pm me to find out if it was a member of their staff i will say whether it was or not.

I didnt post this to try and give bad publicity etc, i genuinely thought i might be missing something about the craft beeer indusrty that was standard practise, as i dont get to be in places which serve it too often.[/quote:619i5ovb]

You're right, I shouldn't have asked. Apologies. I know after a run in I had with someone's staff member recently that they don't necessarily always adhere to their employers standards... And it's always best to find out if your staff are engaged in unapproved practices.

Watch out for it in any bar in Dublin, it's rife.

"Slops" is what comes out of the drip tray isn't it?

Sounds like that bar man had foamy pints or something that he was recycling.

It gets poured into glasses and set up behind the bar waiting on the unsuspecting.

Although reading the original post again, it sounds like they are terming the foamy ullage at the start of a new keg when they're normally a bit high, run off. Letting it stand to settle and then serving, problem is that glasses hidden in under the counter is never a good thing and I always poured that stuff too when working. It also blurs the lines with slop trays etc, it's never a good thing to see partially filled behind counters going stale.

Any well run place should have that stuff in the ullage book.

I've seen that happen. Not too happy about it but I wouldn't put it in the same category as recycling slops. I know pubs that have had their licences suspended for 2 weeks for recycling slops.

I've seen it done with the drip tray from a cask. Probably narrows it down to a handful of pubs in Ireland. Mind you I don't think that person still works in that establishment but I was horrified. Luckily the pint wasn't for me or my mate.
