Guinness has always had a special place in my heart. When I order a shepherd's pie, nothing beats a nice fresh Guinness from the taps. Also, the main ingredient in my beef stew recipe is a bottle of Guinness Draught as the broth. Really good stuff, as many of my readers can attest.
I figured I would write up about a few of the Guinness selections, but will not do official reviews on them. We'll leave it at this-I thoroughly enjoy all of these (and will do an official review of the big guy in the middle-the 1759).
When pouring a Guinness from a can, there is a little secret to recreate the authentic 119.5 second pour. Note I am not using a correct glass as I accidentally broke my stout glass a few weeks back! What you want to do is take a spoon, turn it upside down and pour the beer directly on top of the spoon. The beer will flow to all sides of the spoon and fall hard to the bottom of the glass. See the before and after below.
Before I end, I also want to share the link to my review of Guinness American Blonde, which I review in the late summer (was one of the first 10 on Beer Advocate to submit a review too!)
