    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    In spite of the fact that I am NOT a fan of Guinness, I did purchase a 4pack to celebrate the day (my daughter's birthday).

    Can you hear the little carbonation devices bumping around inside each can? Those provide portentous music of pleasures to come.

    Now I can't decide....should I drink it (later on as it's only 9:30 a,m, and nobody drinks before noon hour) at room temp (gags) or cold?

    I prefer my breakfast Guinny chilled...not cold. But...I'm not fond of room temperature sudz either.

    10:30am wine in Paris is my record... otherwise the noon theory is usually upheld.

    Also it needs to be drunk cold, but just throw it into a glass... let it settle itself in a couple of minutes. I've had Guinness in the states, it doesn't travel well though.

    I heard it best drawn from a "tap" in Ireland. 😉

    It is of course, not bad from a can either though.

    That's how they serve it on top of the brewery, at any rate.

    Well tried it chilled and managed, over about half an hour, to force it down my throat as after my first taste I remembered just how much I don't like it. Maybe I'll try a Kilkenny instead, next year 🙂

    There's a lot more to Irish beer than both of those, but alas, I can't really get it in the shops over here.
