I received two six-packs of bottled beer for my Secret Santa gift at work.

Harp Premium Lager and Smithwick's. Any opinions on these? I haven't had a chance to try them yet.


They're both pretty decent. Not my personal favorites, but I'd be very happy to receive them as gifts!

Pick yourself up some Guinness and you can make Half and Halfs.

Black 'n Tans are a nice alternative as well if you substitute Bass Ale for the Harp.



Mmmmmm…  :)

(You will need an upside down spoon or other way to drizzle in the Guinness so the two beers don't mix.)

Calm down, the man lives in Texas for Christ's sake!

If he lived in Ireland (or Massachusetts), it would be a scandal.  But Texas?  Meh.

you Canadistanian fuckwit.  do you have any idea how much beer in consumed by Texas? 
I dont but its a hell of a lot Im sure.

It's not so much the amount consumed but the fact that guiness is a religion - you're breast fed it in Ireland so you've always had at least one!

Not a fan of Guiness... my wife is though.

Me, I like a good hoppy IPA.

Or a smooth, creamy Kilkenny.

Or just about anything that isn't a stout....  :P

I'm not a fan of stout either, but I do feel Guinness is one of those beers that everyone should have at least once in their lives.  8)

Ah yes, the usual Starfury nationally bigoted insult off the top.  Can't just be a simple fuckwit, can I?

I have never been to Texas, but I can assume, like everywhere else, Texans drink a lot of beer.  Cold pale beers, like Coors, Bud & Bud Light (the #1 beer sold in Texas).

But it is my observation that Texas might not have the same beer culture as a state like Massachusetts.  Perhaps due to the influence of religion- I really can only speculate.



Therefore my point is simply that a Texan never having tasted Guinness is not all that shocking, and that it would be more shocking if a resident of the north eastern US; an area of less religious influence and a higher percentage of Irish descendants, had never tasted Guinness.



Why such an observation would draw a personal & national insult eludes me.
Any time is a good time for pie.

Come on, dude.  Over the top. We have polite Canadians perusing these forums who don't know about the homo-erotic love affair going on between you and .40 Cent. Be nice to each other. It's the season of love and giving.

Easy with the language, Star. Not everyone knows that some of us are close friends here, and it's difficult to tell when we're just roughhousing from when someone is really angry. For example, this post just got reported for moderation.

Woot! Look at Maine with one of the highest number of breweries per capita!

Don't worry. I still find you as warm and cuddly as a porcupine wearing assless chaps.

In Star's defense, they DO drink a metric piss-ton of beer in Texas.
