dlmos - seeing that this title was in F&G rather than NB calmed my nerves enough to open it.

Yes - Guinness. Good stuff.

Oh my; you went hard-core quickly

If you want something interesting, ask for a Bruised Pear--half Guinness/half pear cider.

Enjoy!

Dlmos, if you're ever in Tucson, you have to hit me up. If you like Guiness, there are several local breweries (probably where you live too) that make stouts and porters that will knock your socks off. :)

I love Guinness. It's kind of funny when your B/F is 6'5" and his friend is 6' and I'm 5'4"standing in the middle while they get Heineken and I ask for a Guinness. Oh the "are you serious" look never gets old.

Irish car bombs are what did it for me. Delicious in my drunken college days. 3/4 pint of Guinness, a shot glass full 1/2 of Bailey's and 1/2 of Jameson. Drop the shot glass in the pint and chug. You must chug or it will curdle...oh the hangover memories are not as pleasant lol.

Guinness is ERH-MAY-ZING. It's my fave too.

PS - When I saw the title I had the same NIK-panic for 2 seconds and then remembered the forum and relaxed.

THEN I made a bet in my head as to what it was. I bet "new motorcycle". I lost...

Bruised Pear--half Guinness/half pear cider.

That sounds delicious.

Guinness is high on my list. I rarely drink lagers or light beers anymore.

Bruised Pear--half Guinness/half pear cider

This sounds really good. I am going to have to try one. Irish car bomb sounds interesting too.

When I saw the title I thought motorcycle, too. As I clicked on the thread I said to myself - "This is gonna be good!"

It's all about having a provocative title!

So many good looking Guinness combinations here...I'll have one of each

I'm not sure... but I am sure Baxter will be ironically insulted by the association either way.

I would totally try beer in a box!

dlmos - Guinness is awesome. One of the healthiest beers on the market, too. Cheers!

All in moderation, of course!

ETA: Plus, Guinness only has 125 calories and 4.2% alcohol per serving. In comparison, Budweiser has 145 calories, and 5.0% alcohol per serving (and no antioxidants).

To get the full experience you must go to Dublin for a freshly tapped keg straight from the brewery. In a 200-year-old bar, even better.

Every mile it travels diminishes the Wow factor....

Nice!!! Crazz is in Ireland for the next two weeks.... he's probably going to be ruined for imported Guinness after that.

He has to go to Toner's Pub.

Has to. That's an order.
