The St Patrick’s Day exploding pint.

Is it a case of a pint exploding by itself or is the pub haunted [by the ghost of late regular Joe Murphy]? Either way the lad standing up reckons it was one of the other two boys….

There may even be a simple scientific explanation.

We may never know.

    Cold pint poured into a glass just out of the dishwasher?
    Inside of the glass would contract more quickly that the outside.

      It’s happened to me before. Cracked glass that’s out of the dishwasher and a cold pint put into it. It holds together for a little while then just pops.

      Jaysus dishwashers in Pubs, I’m nostalgic, they just rinse the feckers in dirty water here if you’re lucky. Nothing can kill me now.

    Ah Barney’s is a class pub with good pints, illegal football streams and Dairy Milks! What more could you ask for? Just the pissed ghosts are a pain!

    Stop the press!!!! Irish Bumpkins confused by science? Why are these men not at home with their families?

    Ah here, I can’t be the only one seeing “Carrie’s” wiggling fingers bottom left hand corner of the screen right before the glass explodes.
    That’s Telekinesis, Kyle.

    It’s happened to me twice. It’s so upsetting to see a pint wasted. But on the upside, it’s always replaced with a new one even if I was nearly finished!

      Thanks for repeating this theory for the people who skipped all the comments above just to get to yours

    To answer some questions
    ~ it wasn’t a warm glass from the dishwasher, glass was taken from the shelf and was at room temperature
    ~ these customers don’t have families, they’re all orphans
    ~ it wasn’t Joe Murphy’s ghost, he was a be beamish drinker nor smithwicks. Must have been another ghost passing through

    First time this happened to me it frightened the shite out of me.

    the glass usually goes into odd cubes like sweets one purchased for a penny as a child

    The pint is not the only thing smashed here – the Wadsworth Constant also takes one hell of a beating.
