When I go back to Guinness these days I'm mainly surprised by how light it is.


it's a pretty low calorie beer for like, not being a light (lite) lager or pilsner

corned beef is pretty good with mustard. I ate it at least five or six times in the 28 years I lived in Ireland. but never on st. patrick's day!

yeah it can be good. in my irish american family we probably eat it 2-3 times a march lol

afaik, no. part of why it caught on was poor irish and jewish immigrants living near each other, and the former bought corned beef from the latter.

Guinness in Ireland literally tasted the same as Guinness in the US to me, but maybe I'm just a doofus.

I'll buy it every once in a while. It can definitely hit a spot other drinks can't.

When I’m out drinking and need a break from higher ABV beers, I’ll usually order a Guinness. It helps keep me from getting shitfaced. Plus, for some reason, they don’t give me any hint of a hangover.

Guinness rips hard if you're going on a 5-6 hour video game binge. Very comforting.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/201 ... es-it.html

After the Institute of Food Technologists asked tasters to sample the so-called “black stuff” in 71 bars, 33 cities, and 14 countries over the course of a year, they gave it an average rating of 74 points out of 100 on the Emerald Isle, about 20 points higher than it got anywhere else. “This difference remained statistically significant after adjusting for researcher, pub ambience, [and] Guinness appearance,” the researchers noted.


that definitely sounds scientific

Antwerpen is DELICIOUS

There’s a great 200th anniversary of Guinness Foreign Export 12 pack that’s been around beer stores in the US lately that’s a great buy... love Guinness Extra, Foreign Extra, and especially Antwerpen

not so much the standard Guinness Draught, nitros just taste too watery for me, I like a stout with more to chew on

Surprised to hear that Irish people don't eat corned beef hash, not because I especially associate it with them, just that I ignorantly assumed they're probably mostly eating whatever we're eating and growing up that was definitely an occasional staple of my lumpy British diet. (I don't think it's all that bad).

I know I'm going to get hate for this (from Iambic) but I honestly prefered Beamish when I was in Ireland.

Also, I can't seem to find Murphy's anymore. It used to be pretty much everywhere and in most grocery stores but I haven't seen it in a few months.

I remember back in early 90's seeing Smithwicks everywhere in London and the parts of Ireland where I was, is it still fairly popular?
I don't drink beer/ale often but I enjoy a Guiness every now and then.
Oddly, I saw a lot McEwans in Jamaica many years ago.

I couldn't abide by Harp either, but I liked Smithwick's. I was also into Boddingtons. Around 2002/2003 I was convinced every UK beer that wasn't Harp was good.
