Guinness Appreciation Thread

Its my favorite and deserves its own thread. I like a Guinness thrice weekly if all is going well.

I also saw a cool recipe for Guinness Onion Soup.

4 cloves garlic
2 large onions
1.5 Guinness Cans
4-5 cups Beef Broth.

Saute 4 cloves garlic (minced) in 2 Tbsp. olive oil, just enough to flavor oil.
Saute onions for 3-5 minutes until golden.
Introduce Guinness to the pot, reduce heat to medium.
add 4-5 cups beef broth and heat to high.
Transfer soup cups with toast and melted cheese (provolone or cheddar)
Broil to melt cheese, serve hot.

Hobo Stew..

Toss a bunch of coursed cubed veggies(potatoes, carrots, celery, cabbage, turnips, etc) in a big can. Add piles of cut up smoked sausages, italian sausages, etc. Cut corn on the cob in half, toss those in. add water, salt pepper, hot sauce and quite a few bottles of Guiness, cover and boil for a few hours. The last time I did this we used a 35 gallon trash can(new).

tastes great..

I guess I'm a purist here - I like my Guinness for sipping only - particularly out on the deck or out on the porch swing or on the sofa watching tv or in bed reading a good book. . . . .

Me, I just drink it every Tuesday lunchtime for 2 hours between Chem lectures.

and at £2.10 a pint (esp for center of Town) that`s a Fantastic price! (it`s over 3 quid anywhere else).

needless to say I spend a tenner every tuesday :D

no lectures today though, so I kinda missed out :(

Guinness is mighty good!! One of my favorites!! I only occasionally am able to get to anything resembling an Irish Pub. But the Guinness in the grocery stores around here suffices nicely.

I actually didnt like guinness at first. Tried it a few times, couldnt acquire the taste. Then I went to the guinness brewery in Dublin and found it fascinating. If any of you have ever been there, you know that it is a long tour with a nice climb up a bunch of stories. At the end, you get your "Free" guinness (part of the admission ticket). I can tell you, after walking that much, I needed a beer. And since that time, I have loved Guinness.

Interesting story I learned while at the brewery/museum: Arthur Guinness had signed the famous 1000 year lease, but after awhile, Dublin got ticked off because the brewery was using too much water from the Liffey (river). The city told the brewery to shut down, or else. Guinness said no. The police came armed to the gills, while all the employees were guarding the factories with pitchforks and hoes...the police backed off and havent bother them since. Legend? Perhaps. But I taste that defiancy in every drop regardless!

Guinness, oohh, Guinness. I have loved the Stout for many moons. I can do without the Draught version though.

I have always wanted to make Mish's Guinness Meatball recipe.

I have a favorite Sierra Brewfest Beer Bread recipe that you could use Guinness in. It is very quick and easy to make. Perfect for a week night when you don't want to spend forever in the kitchen.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
