I've never understood the appeal of Guinness. Guess my tastebuds just aren't that refined. It tastes like burnt motor oil to me.


Guinness in the US might be different from the authentic stuff LG drinks.

Regarding tastes in beer, most Americans seem to like large quantities of the cheap, mass-produced stuff that's the equivalent to Kraft cheese slices.

The stuff I drink is more like extra-sharp cheddar.


I've had a few pints in Europe but not in the UK. I remember it tasting a little better but I just can't get past that burnt taste.

Only one place to drink Guinness , gods own country , done the Guinness brewery tour this year ,for first time , amazing to see the history and the size of consumption worldwide , Guinness had private railways and fleets of sail and steamer ships at turn of last century , ( hard to believe that Guinness is sold in most countries worldwide , no matter what beer is on offer ,Guinness is always part of the choice ) the beauty of Guinness to me is the non gas , allowing you to drink more without being bloated ( the god fearing members will strike me down for that statement) it also numbs the body from the toes upwards , allowing singing and talking bull shite for longer periods of time , also cuts down on toilet visits , which is handy after 7/8 pints ,as legs no longer work :lol:

It is sad that mass produced swill such as Canadian, Bud, and Coors is so popular in North America. Ugh, I'll stick to water thank you.

There is a small brewery near where I go on holidays that sells an organic stout called The Backhand of God. Just fantastic! I always grab a few growlers of it for my week away.

Lots of small breweries are popping up all over and thats excellent. The local Coop liquor stores are really carrying a lot of them these days and they promote them all the time. Now is a great time to be a fan of real beer!

Fat Tire is my go to ale, this brewery makes some "interesting" beers http://braubeer.com/the-beer/ Bancreagie is good but not one I can drink all the time. I will have some on hand for BBQ's where it will pair with ribs really well.

Fat Tire, Sawtooth, Shift and Buffalo Gold are some of my favorite local brews. Dog Fish Head also rocks- AND they use quality ingredients. :thumbup:

Beer tastes like horse piss. I prefer premium bourbons like Pappy Van Winkle, George T. Stagg and A.H. Hirsch.

I guess they are using west coast hops in that version. The first commerial mispronounced willamette valley so bad they had to redo it. :lol: (heavy german Will I Met)
Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds tasty.

I found a cool beer business the other day, this tavour.com place just opened for west coasters and they deliver!
Their darn email description got me again and I just ordered some Mad River Brewings 9% Humbolt Brownie Stout. Should be tasty with some brisket.

(Shameless referral link so I can afford some more) :mrgreen:

After three years of very extensive research - thanks to the USAF, a class A pass, a beater '54 Fa-Vay, and just enough pay for thorough testing - I can assure everyone that the best beer on earth is produced in the small Bavarian town of Kulmbach... three exceptional breweries and one excellent brewery.

...and this place has to be on everyone's bucket list -- just plain fest bier but nobody cares :lol:

German wheats (Hefeweizen) used to be my favorites: Franziskaner, Weihenstephaner, etc. Lately, I'm liking a local IPA, Southern Hops’pitality, brewed down on the coast by Lazy Magnolia Brewery. If you're a fan of IPA's and come across some, I suggest you try it.

well, I'm one of those cheap beer guys myself.
for uber cheap, can't go wrong with Milwaukee's Best Ice.
$11-12 for a 30pack.

I've had quite a few 'good' beers as well, have to stay away from those wheats or people can die around me a few hours later :oops: I have 4 beers in a storeroom that I've been meaning to use up, they are all fantastic, will find them tomorrow and mention the names.

I tried, real real hard, to buy into a local brewer about a year ago. I had no idea that everyone is trying to buy into every craft brewer everywhere... :lol: I made a more than fair offer and got zero response afterward. Just betting they will never achieve what we could have together, due to the simple fact living day2day makes it real difficult to reinvest profits into more equipment. This brewer sells out of their entire daily production within 24hrs. Great beer, but good God, do high end beers cost a ton....$9 for a bomber ????!!!!. I'd be in the poorhouse if I drank this stuff everyday.
