I Drink Guinness

    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.

    Dublin Square Or The Field?

    In San Diego, there are only 2 Irish places worth going.  The "square" is VERY popular on UFC fight nights and is genrally loud.  The Sligo Rags perform often.  AWESOME band.  The Field is low-key and more authentic as far as feel and atmosphere...

    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.

    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.

    Sweet Mud

    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. :)

    Just Love The Stuff.

    I have been drinking Guinness for a long time now. I won`t drink regular beer if I can help it. I have tried the stuff in bottles, just awful. I don`t mind the cans but prefer to have it on tap. :o)

    Not The Same

    I guess wht I'm getting now isn't the same as it used to be.  It's tasting too muck like water.  I'm starting to crave Shine Boch.

    It's the best beer in the world.

    Love the stuff. Been drinking it since I was about 7yo when my granny would let me sip it from her glass on a sunday. I love how it kills a thirst instantly and that first mouthful going down is just divine. YES I AM IRISH :)

    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...
