In sligo they always put blackcurant in Guinness even if you tell them not too. Well maybe that just happened in the pubs we went to.

It was alright but not as good as plain Guinness. This girl had never had a drink in her life so starting out at Guinness was probably not a good thing for her LOL

This thread deserves a bump.

Guinness I've grown fond of it and can hardly drink any other kind of beer.

If there were a Guinness drinking festival in, say, Boston, I'd fly the 3 thousand miles for it. Heck yeah.

Unfortunately there are still several places in the USA where Guinness has yet to catch on. As a result, some places will serve Guinness that is very old. Often your best bet in the USA is to get Guinness in the Can or the NEW bottle with the CO2 balls. Those are almost always fresh and damn good. If a place I know does poorly with Guinness from the tap, I ask for the can or the bottle.

Some other great Irish Stouts are Murphy's and Beamish. Both are brewed in Cork City Ireland.
