I went out with a group of people last night and one of the guys ordered a Guinness. We were at a great beer bar with tons of options on tap, so I just asked him if he’d tried any other stouts. He was rather offended with my suggestion and let me know that Guinness is his all time favorite beer, even though he’s tried many. Really?? His favorite?? Surely this can’t be true!
It’s been so long since I’ve tried a Guinness, that I decided to have one myself. I’d forgotten how delicious it really is! It’s bitter and roasty with a creamy head, but not to overly filling – a really good stout! They got it right when they created this beer, so if you’re holding out for St. Patty’s Day to have one – break free to enjoy one sooner. Oh, and a 12-ounce bottle comes in at 126 calories – so if you’re looking to maintain that “girlish figure”, it’s a smart choice!

I am a Guinness guy. Nice picture.

I think Guinness may be my new “go to” beer, when I’m in the mood for a stout. I’d forgotten what great body and roasty flavor this old beer has – and all of that for under 130 calories – I’m in!! 🙂
