On a nitro tap is good but i really dislike the bottled and can variety.
Did you chase your greasy brunch with a pint?
You're drinking it *in* Ireland, aren't you? You lousy BAHSTID!!
Oh man i didn't catch that.
From what i hear the Guiness in the ol' country is not what they sell us mericans.....their domestic is way better but i still don't know exactly why.
i'd say that there are a couple reasons it's better over here (in ireland).
1 - freshness. the keg sizes are 1/2 what the US typically uses, and the turnover rate is amazing. plus, the brewery is in the city itself. fresh beer is all but guaranteed.
2 - the barmen know how to pull a proper draught. they don't rush it.
gonna dig into a couple more pints in a few.
You suck. Somewhere I have a picture of me having a pint *at* the brewery in Dublin.... I should scare it up.
I am so freaking jealous.
If you don't recreate that bar scene from Trainspotting (Yes I know that was Scotland) you're a pvssy!
Ireland, Guinness, Lucky!
how come with guinness since they have the nitrogen thing in it and it doesn't release until you open the beer, you shake it up and open it it still sprays, seems like it shouldn't spray since it's not carbonated until you open it
Do they hand pump it from the cellar? If so, that's why it tastes better.
Best Guiness I've had was in New Zealand(and yes I've had a pint or 8 in Dublin). So creamy, so tasty! I don't trust anyone in the states to pour a proper pint of guiness.
news flash - the guiness in dublin / ireland really is that good....
i did have a few pints, maybe in christchurch? i can't recall.
alas, i am off the emerald isle now...back to ales.
Yar...it was in ChCH. One place called the Boar something and anothe place out in the boonies of the city. Both places had top notch guiness pouring lasses....cleavage, shamrocks, and everything.
Well if you are in the states, you find someone you can trust or you go without, and that's not an acceptable alternative. When I was in Boston, there were a couple guys at the Green Dragon that could pull a good pint. Now that I'm in SF, the best place is the Toronado.
MMMMM, Guinesss. It's what's for dinner!!
If you're irish, stay drinking Guiness. (I'm proud of being able to pour a proper pint as my Grandpa owned a pub in Gorey, and my mom was a waitres there)
IRA car bomb (kind of a sketchy title dont use it in a bar)
- 1 pint Guiness
- 2 shots Scotch
- 1 Shot Bailey's
drinking one right now
i just had a Murphy's pub stout, its a Guinness subsititute that my g/f picked up. they're not as good but it does the trick. my staple 95% of the time is Guinness.
Try this if you ever find it.
Now *that* is something I could probably like.................
haven't seen that, but i did have an extra stout export (or something like that) when i was in st maarten. i recall Dump talking highly of those. very flavorful, and much higher in alcohol than the regular. seems a funny fit for high temp regions.
I had some of that in Jamaica. Tasty. Most of the export stuff (IPAs, Guinness, etc.) is hopped higher and has higher ABV as both are natural preservatives.
In a can of "Draught" Guinness,(you can still get cans and bottles of non draught Guinness here but only the real old heads who were weened on the stuff drink it), there is a little ball of nitrogen called a widget, the can and the widget are pressurized at the same pressure and it is only when you open the can that the pressure inside the can changes bursting a small pin sized hole in the widget and realesing the nitrogen.
Guinness can only really be enjoyed in Ireland in a warm pub with an open fire on a cold February day, creamy and tasty. "There's 'atin and drinkin' in 'er".
a friend of mine did the patent search on this; it was pretty interesting.
peat or coal fire, preferably.
akula_7, where are you based?
Mmmmm...... warm Irish pub.........
Im based in Athlone, Ireland, riding an Ancillotti, Peat fire obviously! Bord na Mona briquettes all the way!
ah, must be one of the athlone DH guys then. i lived in ireland from '03-'04 and did some of the races. you remember a yank on a black Giant DH w/ an avalanche shock? that's me.
Thats me alright, I remember you alright, mainly for posting over on what was braydownhill.com
Pity you missed the 05 season over here was a cracker, you probably miss the Guinness more then anything else. Later head! Keep 'er lit.
