Chris Poh is the founder and publisher of
American Public House Review--the online magazine dedicated to honoring the tradition of great pubs, taverns, saloons and drinking parlors.
It is our belief that the worth of a public house is measured by the efforts of its patrons, owners and staff to establish a space that welcomes everyone as equals, and treats all who enter with the same regard and respect. It is a community that provides comfort, counsel and comaraderie. "It is the front porch of a bygone era, and the parliament of the common man."
American Public House Review is not a critique of menus, libation or service. Instead we strive to capture the heart, the soul and the unique story of each of our featured locations.
