During the winter months, my beverage of choice is Guinness. Last night I had a pretty fresh pint at Paddy's Pub, 2339 N. Murray Ave., and I am always impressed with the Guinness at Brocach, 1850 N. Water St.
I'm wondering which other locales guarantee a fresh tap of this delicious Irish stout?
In case you don't already know this, Guinness has less alcohol and fewer calories than most other regular beers, and despite its dark color and frothiness, it's extremely refreshing. Really, it's drinkable anytime of year, but in my opinion, it's particularly dee-lish in the wintertime.
So, back to the original question. Where can I get a great glass of Guinness? (Besides Ireland, of course.)
County Clare serves the best pint period....no contest. Its 20oz for one thing, that knocks off about 75% of the competition. They pour more Guinness than anywhere I have seen and they charge only $5 for 20oz!! Some places charge $3-$3.50 for a 12oz Miller!! thats more expensive than a delicious 20oz Guinness!!
County Clare pours off 20 barrels of Guinness a week. One half barrel a week is shameful.
Its not "quantity" that matters, its "quality." County Clare serves the best look, tasting and affordable pint in the country. Hell they just got voted best Guinness in the city by Guinness drinkers!!
Definitely Buckley's. Great food and great hospitality, one of the jewels in our city. The Guinness is always fresh, the way nature intended it.....Times are tight but we will always make sure that we eat and drink here.

This is something most of us would like to see change, and one way to do this is to recognize and support the truly diverse establishments in the city. Jo's Cafe, 3518 W. Silver Spring Dr., is one of these places.
