Methinks the mods seems to have a obsessive/compulsive thing about beer.

Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is the king of the Guinnesses.  Guinnesi?  Guinnai?
 
2014-03-17 02:46:57 PM  
Smithwick's is one of the world's best beers.
 
2014-03-17 02:47:49 PM  
Actually half of them are Guinness.   Murphy's, Carlow, and Porterhouse round up the other house.

Irish? Quantity not quality. Also is the beer in question within arm's reach? Then it's a great Irish beer.

Seriously. How did they miss that. Guinness Black Lager isn't really that great, Guinness FES is awesome..

Plus can we stop with the whole Guinness draught  meal in a glass thing. The guy who wrote this actually calls it full bodied, when by definition it is a dry irish stout which means it is not full bodied. It is on par with some lagers when it comes to body. Plus the alcohol content is barely over 4%.

The Irish only drink Budweiser.

I count 3 out of 10; Harp, Guinness, Guinness Stout; unless Guinness makes more beers than I know about.

I toured the Guinness factory in Dublin; but, the tour wasn't the best; as it was self guided. The Jameson factory tour was much better; we had a guide and everything. They also made the best mixed drinks at the Jameson factory that I've ever had.

/ they should have been; they were like $15 a drink

Smithwick's is Guinness as well.

Agreed. Funny though, I went home in 2008 to meet my family, (see Philomena), and I noticed that out of 13 brothers and sisters, as well as significant others at the table I was the only one drinking Irish beer. Budweiser, Tuborg, Heineken and lots and lots of wine.

I tried Guinness for the first time at our hotel in county Meath; wasn't too impressed with the crazy bitter aftertaste, so I stuck with draught Heineken and was very impressed, as it tastes like crap here in the states...if you ever go back, check out Bushmills factory in County Antrim, up near the Giants causeway...really impressive place and very good whiskey ;)

I like Guinness, but I'm a big fan of Watney's Cream Stout when I can find it.  Far less bitter than Guinness, but just as thick and chewy!!

Black Lager has grown on me a bit, but I wouldn't say it's a favorite by any means.  Usually the guys who talk about Guinness being a meal in a glass don't know shiat all about beer.  Barleywine or doppelbock, that's a meal in a glass.  I never much cared for dry stouts but anything with more malt behind it to balance I'm all about it.  Then again, Guinness draught has a hell of a lot more going for it than run of the mill lagers so if it works for some more power to them.  The widget cans and bottles are cool also..

When I went to Japan, we were starving by the time we got jet lagged to the hotel.  The coffee shop menu reads:

BEER, IMPORTED:   Budeweiser

No thanks, I'll drink the domestic stuff (and no it was not the Czech stuff).

You think Guinness is bitter?

I don't think you have tried too many beers outside of typical American pisswater.

I befriended three Irish ladies in a bar in Wexford owing to that fact. Made for a nice icebreaker.

I tried to gain support for the Bushmills factory tour; but, it was only open weird times or something, I forget the exact reason we couldn't go. But, we did get to go to Belfast; which was pretty cool.

/ My youngest brother and I were at a in Kilkenny bar and he said, and I qoute, "I'm gonna get a Belfast Bomb". A Belfast bomb is a mixture of Guinness and Jameson. I proceeded to explain to him why calling it that, in Ireland, was a very bad idea.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Smithwick's is one of the world's best beers.


Love it.

Will also quite happily drink Kilkenny, Caffrey's, and Boddingtons, all of which are pretty easy to find on tap here in Toronto.  In the odd pub that has none of these, Guinness will do.
 
2014-03-17 03:38:39 PM  
When I was in Belfast a few years ago all the Irish lads were drinking Budweiser.  Go Figure.

Also, the Guinness served in the historic brewery in Dublin tastes exactly the same as what comes out of the can with the widget here.  The fastest way for me to tell that someone is so full of BS their eyes are brown is for them to go off about how much better Guinness is in Éire.

Also, Gaelic is fun to say.

This, plus Beamish, or, if not in a beer mood, Power's whiskey, and I am good to go.

Since this is a beer thread, I thought I'd mention that I had a really, really good pint (or 3) of pale ale this weekend... Alpha King by Three Floyds.  On tap at the Little Goat Diner in Chicago.

Really? 'Cause I can tell there's a difference between the can and buying it on tap from a bar. Now, Guinness served at the brewery and the Guinness at my local bar I'm sure are ~99% the same taste.

Dirty lines often impart this taste. Fresh Guinness from clean lines should go down like chocolate milk without the chocolate.

Lived in Cork, Ireland for 5 years.. Caffrey's and Kilkenny you won't find in Ireland. Searched for 5 years to find Caffrey's and every Irish person told me it wasn't really Irish. Naturally I knew this but still I had to search.

Love Murphy's though and my friend Pearl's family started it. They made a good hunk of change off that sale to Heine.

Anyhow the Irish are more likely to drink Miller or Bud than they are Guinness. Either that or cider.

Let me guess the writer just went to his local shop and padded it with a quick google search.

No, it doesn't. Guinness makes about twenty variations of stout for different markets around the world.
