I too drank Guinness in a little pub in Ireland...in Dublin, it is nice, an acquired taste

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Of course it will keep. The alcohol acts as a preservative. Personally, I think draught Guinness tastes better than bottled and you can sling the canned stuff in the rubbish bin. However, if you want it at home bottled it has to be.

I have some bottles of Mackeson (similar to Guinness but slightly sweeter) in the cupboard that I bought for last year's Christmas puddings and I will use the bottles up in October when I make this year's puddings. That's if I haven't used them in casseroles before then.

Not if the seal is intact. If it isn't throw it away.
