    Guinness

    The local importer of Guinness has given up the franchise and very shortly there will be no more blackstuff on the market. Not great news for paddies day.

    I know at least one English guy who may relocate. No Guinness in the LOS just too much to bear.

    Never really seen the attraction myself but bad news for those that do.

    SuperSport to be cut, now Guinness... Is this some concerted campaign against sports-watching, beverage-swilling, couch potato's or what?

    As stout beer is my ancestral, cultural, dietary and genetic background , I can process the stuff properly and it is my human right to acquire, make and imbibe this food.

    So, I brew my own.

    Any recipes require for the best, pm me.

    I love Guiness on tap, but rarely drink it.

    I rarely see Guinness where I live. In fact, I'm not eve sure it's here. I'll ask at an Irish pub in town.

    Heineken are taking it over apparently, according to FP. No need to panic.

    Luckily for you, you have Amber Stout which is much better than Guinness.

    A couple of years ago TAPB invited us to their headquarters in Bangers to sample Murphy's and Amber Stout; they were toying with the idea of a competitor to Guinness. Nothing ever materialised and looks like never will if they've aquired Guinness.

    I had two awesome pints for lunch today, never drink it in Thailand though.

    Wasn't celebrating Paddy's Day, despite him being Welsh, I wouldn't have ordered them if I knew.

    Ahh yes, I remember. The Underground in Saigon, right?

    Sadly, that place closed.

    But I think Amber stout was very rare in Saigon.

    Any one ever tried putting a double Tia Maria in a pint glass then topping it up with the black stuff ?
    Its called a Dublin Milkshake tastes fine and does the damage.

    My local pub is owned by and most of the clientele are West Indian, they get half a pint of the black stuff in a pint glass and top it off with peanut punch (from a carton) i asked about it and was told "if you drink a pint of that you know you've had a good meal"???

    I think this is the stuff, http://www.afrocarib.co.uk/peanut-punch.html
    Well, luckily I didn't have any tortoises on me at the time...
