  • Blasphemy: I'm No Longer a Guinness Man

    I'm sorta disappointed in myself to come to this decision (or realization), but I think Newcastle is my preferred brew. It just goes better with food, you know? I mean with real food. I suspect this is because Guinness is really a food itself; this may be why I think it's better with snacks, like fries or nachos or wings. With a meal, though, I don't find that it adds anything, and in fact sometimes distracts.

    Newcastle, meanwhile, is wonderfully flavorful and slightly more drinkable (as compared to Guinness, which practically requires a spoon) and pairs well with all kinds of great food ('though the heartier the better).

    So the next time you and I sit down to a good meal, order me a Newcastle. I'm converted.

    Newcastle is very drinkable. My time in northern California made me into an Anchor Steam man, though.
