    I know what you mean, but the Merry Monks' has great flavor IMO.

    If I have a choice between Smithwick's and Harp, I will take a Harp every time. Its just that Smithwick's is much more widely available, at least around here.

    Word.


    I went to an Irish Pub in Falls Church with my wife a few months ago and the only Irish beer they had on tap was Guinness. They had Shock Top, Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Yuengling. No Harp. No Murphy's.


    It was a garbage place anyway.

    And they probably had a shitty pour for their Guinness on top of it.

    It was actually flat...which is saying something because Guinness isn't entirely carbonated to begin with, but this just tasted...I dont know...stale I guess.

    What's everyone drinking? Always a great "Off-topic" topic.

    I do not have a sophisticated enough palette to appreciate Smithwicks (I think it is was Bud Light drinkers drink when they want to have something Irish around St. Patty's day).

    I generally drink Guinness at all times during the year. Tried Murphy's a few times when I was in Cork, but I prefer Guinness, especially on tap in Ireland.

    I understand someone in Easton purchased the rights to National Premium, and managed to get the original recipe from one of the former brewers for the original National Brewing Company. I do not think much of Natty Boh, but I loved National Premium--the official beer of Homestead 4th of July and Labor day crabfeasts. Should be out in very limited quantities this week end.

    Hope I can find some ( Oh yeah --the color of the label is the original purple). It will look great in my tailgate cooler.

    Actually Guinness has more carbonation, albeit different, than most brews.

    They add nitrogen to the draught keg. It's what gives the pour it's distinctive cascade effect and it's head.

    From what I understand, the craft brew McHenry's is the National Premium recipe.

    I stick to a few favorite brands. Luksusowa Vodka, straight out of the freezer. It's rare to find a potato vodka any more, and this one is remarkably smooth and highly underrated. Bombay martini (Not Sapphire! No vermouth!), straight up, jumbo olives stuffed with blue cheese. And I am currently trying various vineyards of Malbec wines.

    If you're into Malbecs, you have to try this one pictured below.

    Paul Hobbs' Argentinian collection featured a Malbec called El Felino. It was one of the best Malbec's I've ever had. Bottle price is mid 20's I believe, so somewhat pricey, but man it's good.

    Has anyone tried anything from the new microbrewery here in southern DE- 16 Mile?
    They like their hops

    I've had it several times. I remember the Amber Sun and Old Court. Neither seemed too hoppy to me. I don't believe I have had their IPA though...
