I Drink Guinness

    Cheers

    Back home, there was this Irish bar I loved to hang out at. I was there every week. It started because a musician friend of mine played there. But the bartender was fun, and could make an amazing Irish coffee and pour my Guinness with an impressive clover "etched" in...

    Actually, I Like Most Imports

    Guinness is not a particular favorite but it is good so it is in the closely crowded field at the front of the pack. Mexican, Dutch, German, Irish, Chinese (I don't think I have had Japanese and do the Italians or French brew beer?) - like them all.

    Guinness!   I have tried other "stouts" and they are just not as good.    I get mad when people speak badly about it.  They say things that are just not true, "It is heavey or too strong."  Bah I say, you mear mortals! ...

    An Acquired Taste

    I've drunk Guinness for 35 years. You definitely have to acquire a taste for this stout  beverage. I liked it from the first sip. Some like to cut it half and half with regular beer. A dark and tan beer is the result. I like it straight on draft or bottle. If...

    I Make It 455.

    Yeah, there has to be more Guinness drinkers out there. There's probably more people out there wearing Guinness apparel on EP that actually drinks it. Too bad for them. More for me.

    Now In Cakey Goodness

    My Favorite Beer

    One day, I decided to figure out which beer is my favorite. I knew the top four, but I'd never done myself an official "taste test" between them. The contenders are: Corona, Newcastle, Sam Adams (original), and Guinness Draught (Guinness Stout is too heavy--I feel full after the...

    A Food Grouping

    I am Irish therefore it is a sin for me not to be seen to be drinking Guinness.  However, I really do not believe that Guinness travels well at all- and therefore think all fans have to experience an Irish Guinness.

    I do love my Guinness but if I plan on having more than one drink usually get black and tans.  One pint of Guinness and I feel as though I've eaten a 12 course meal. :)

    You Never Forget Your First Time

    I was nineteen years old and working in a bar on the outskirts of London the first time I had Guiness. It wasn't a popular drink in that pub and I was surprised one when one of our regular bitter drinkers asked for a Guiness instead. When I asked why he said "It's cold outside...

    A Bottle Of Stout.

    of stouts this week.  I was surprised that they had Guinness on tap at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati when I visited on Friday. I do tend to think that $7.75 is a bit much for a beer considering I can still get 4 cans for about the same price. But then the fact...
