Ah, a Guinness glass. I had to drink mine out of a Yuengling mug, which just seemed wrong.
Personally, I just relaxed with a [small] glass of Tullamore Dew...FYI: You might want to read the fine print on the back of the bottle. You may find the following words in very small print: "Brewed under license by Labatt Breweries, Toronto, Canada and under the supervision and quality standards of Guinness Limited. Product of Canada."Think of this not as a fault, but rather one more reason to get on over to Dublin.
LPF: Guinness is from Canada? Canada???I am totally flummoxed!
I stayed home, well away from the amateurs downtown in Cleveland, and had a Smithwick's.
That's what I'm talkin' about.You had a picture of a glass of green beer. That is roughly the color of the dye they use in the Chicago River on St P.'s Day. Not very appetizing.
Just a tad of Bushmills fer meself. Just a tad, mebe a lil tad more.
"Guinness is from Canada?"Guinness is brewed under license in something like 50 countries around the world.The stuff we get is brewed in Canada so it can still say 'Imported' on the label.As for getting your pint in Ireland: First of all its an Imperial pint - nice & big - generally with a clearly visible fill line - none of those 14oz glasses most US bars try to pawn off as a 'pint'. Also, anyone who visits Ireland will tell you the Guinness is better there. Part of that is no-doubt the surroundings, however, they aren't just bullsh!tt!ng. It is. It is an altogether more pleasant beer in its' native environment, smoother in both texture and taste with more caramel roastiness of malt and less coffeeish finish. The 'Guinness grimace' (the slight pursing of your lips from the bitter finish) clearly did not originate in Ireland.I speak from experience: I did a week there in Jan 09 to escape the Obamanation... The country is stunningly beautiful even in the dead of winter. I've gotta go back in spring sometime.
