Remember when we wrote articles about beer at Walt Disney World? Those were the days, right? Actually, I’ve been holding off since I’ll be there in June. However, I recently came into some Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. Yes, that’s right, I recently came into some Guinness Foreign Extra Stout. As the story goes, my wife asks if I’ve ever had this beer at random one day. I respond that I haven’t, and she tells me that our friend “bought the [ Read More ]
Saint Patrick’s day is tomorrow, Saturday, May 17, and friends, we need to talk. Not about wearing green or not, but about the massive disrespect that goes on as far as drinking beer goes on this Irish holiday. For the love of all that is holy, do not dye Bud Light (or insert any other American lager here) green and drink it and say you’re celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day.

Many say the Guinness served here in the States doesn’t taste the same as the Guinness served in Ireland, its home country. Since I’ve never been to Ireland, I can’t say for sure whether that’s true or not. Like Boddingtons Pub Ale, this one came from a nitrogen-pressurized can. The effect is much the same as the Boddingtons; the nitrogen makes this an extremely smooth and creamy beer with a nice head. It has a light coffee and chocolate flavor [ Read More ]
Sadly it wasn’t I who drank this beauty, I had to save my liver for the last country of the Drinking Around the World. But I had to take a picture of the lovely executed clover that our fabulous bartender drew. Uhh… even though that’s not the part that’s in focus…. And hopefully next time I drink this heavily, I’ll make sure my camera settings are set before the festivities.
