Stouts & Ales
« on: Apr 06, 09, 04:55:08 pm CDT »

I'm am a  Guiness fan. I like the rich nutty tone, but I was just wanting to try some new things. I just got some Arrogant Bastard and Ruination, but haven't tried them yet. Anybody ever tried either, or recommend something else good to try.

My wench drinks Blue Moon and likes it with lemon. Someone told her to try it with orange, so I'll let you know if that's better.

Anyway, I was just looking for some feedback on drinkin' and figured this to be a good place to get it.  :D

If you like Guiness try Murphy's I personally think its a bit smoother. For a weird treat find Dragon's Milk I think its made by the same company that makes Arrogant Bastard (new Holland).

I like Murphys better as well.

Hard to find on tap around here, though.

Everyone always has Guiness.

In milwaukee there is a very nice irish pub that has murphy's as well as a few Ciders on tap.

And the food is awesome as well.

Hey, thanks. I'd never even heard of Murphy's. Have to give that a try.

Hmm, I was just debating to try Murphy's Red the other night. Guess I'll have to now.

As much as I like stout, it don't like me. I'll drink more than one and a couple of hours later I get a tremendous headache. Kind of like a migrane and my night is done.

Dark ales are fine (I prefer darker ales anyway), it just seems to be stout that does it to me... Hmmmm.

FYI: I thought the Arrogant Bastard was pretty good. Creamier than Guiness with a different finish. Not really nutty. It was sold refrigerated and I started drinking it that way, but I noticed as the glass warmed the flavor got better. I'm thinking room temp or just slightly cooler might be best for this drink.

Don't know if you can find either of these but the ones (aside from Guinness) that I tend to go for are Skullsplitter Orkney Ale

or Finnegans Irish Amber which is a Minnesota product by Summitt Brewery.

Just got this in a email today from Guinness:
This year marks our 250th anniversary, so it's time to celebrate! We're happy to announce to you, the loyal 1759 Society, the launch of our Special Edition Guinness® 250 Anniversary Stout on April 24th.

We couldn't be prouder of this stout. Using a unique brewhouse process that combines the use of stout and ale malt, it's a distinctive carbonated stout with a clean, smooth finish. This is especially exciting, as we haven't introduced a new stout to the US since 1967, when we first started importing Guinness® Draught.

It's only available for a limited time, so on April 24th, pick some up at your local retailer or go out with some friends and try a pint of our brand new brew!

Cool.   Not only about the special stout, but that Guiness emails you.  :)
