That's a cool photo! But I guess bartenders are supposed love their job. You sure he might not have had a pint or two before the photo was snapped?

Ottoman - Did you also have the "crisps" that the gentleman is peddling at the bar ? Nothing like a few munchies when quaffing a drink.

Voyager... along with my free pint of Guinness, I enjoyed a delicious Irish Stew. By the time I finished both, I couldn't eat another bite. Travel Luver...I'm thinking at least two pints of Guinness were consumed by the bartender, a man who as Bling mentioned, gives his all to his work and (cough cough) may have to sample an occasional pint or two to make sure the brew meets his high standards.

Seems you have an affinity for not only the Irish people, but also their Guinness? Can that be? You are not a Molson Canadian fan?

Re: June 20, 2018: Beer in a Carton

Amateuremigrant ·
What an odd origin ! Things once embedded seem to take a long time to change, even when it's obvious ! I've always hated drinking straight from a carton anyway. In south India I had a surprise when I heard there was some Indian 'Port' at the store and got a small plastic pouch full of something that bore more resemblance to red wine vinegar.

My curiosity is also piqued about this Italian beer. Not sure if I tried beer in Italy. Wine seems to be flowing out of ever crack in every building, but I'll need to give it a try next time I'm there. Hi praise from a Canadian, I might add.

Peroni is a good example of Italian Beer. Crisp tasting with a malty flavour. A white frothy head and sparkling. Available around the world. Drunk with Pizza and Italian food at UK restaurants.

Re: Guinness Storehouse, Dublin, Ireland. Where Gumbo was #44

PortMoresby ·
While not a beer fan I did once live in Golden, Colorado within smelling distance of Coors when the wind was blowing my direction. Which it obviously was not the day I decided that was the house for me. But I'll concede, it could have been worse. My only other distantly related experience was spending a few days in Norfolk with Val Guinness, a very gracious & entertaining lady. Beer is a thing I lump together with team sports and spending time beneath the hood of a car for no discernible...

Re: Guinness Storehouse, Dublin, Ireland. Where Gumbo was #44

DrFumblefinger ·
A love for beverages is a personal and often acquired taste. Others share your feelings about beer. Others feel the same way about wine, hard spirits, coffee or tea. To each, their beverage of choice! I enjoy sampling whatever beverage is popular in a region. For example, when in the hills of Sri Lanka, there's nothing better than a cup of BOPF tea. In Italy, it makes sense to focus on the wine. When in Ireland, you need to try the Guinness and some of their triple distilled whiskey.

Interesting, Dr F, that you're a fan of fannings (the F in BOPF). The smallest particles of the tea, what tea bags are made from, I too prefer it to whole leaf as I like my tea strong. Now we have a beverage in common.

Re: German beer-drinking hits historic low

I would suspect there are two factors involved in this change. 1) The aging of the population. 2) Changing ethnic demographics of the country. If more and more of the people are non drinkers, there will be less beer consumed.
