It's always Guinness time somewhere.
It's always Guinness time somewhere.

Guinness is Guinness. That is all.

"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee.com is back for another round – brought to you by Aperol, Pinnacle, Jameson, Fireball, Red Stag and Avion. The whole month of February, we're serving up intoxicatingly fun articles on bars and clubs – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews and more. Grab a designated driver and dive in!

Guinness is my beer of choice. I find it flavorful, creamy and light. Yes, light.

At 125 calories, it's almost as low-cal as a Miller Lite which has 96 calories. But this is not the only reason why I drink it. I like how refreshing it is. Yes, refreshing.

For many people, bartenders included, it seems dark beer means a heavy beer and if a place doesn't have Guinness, they immediately suggest another stout. Most other stouts are thick and too sweet for my palate.

It's like offering Tabasco (which is a tangy pepper sauce) when I ask for a hot sauce (Sriracha, please).

This blog definitely falls into the "first world problems" category, but to me, Guinness is Guinness. There is simply no replacement.

Except maybe Irish whiskey.

36366 I couldn't agree more!!! Underated beer here in Miller town. My only complaint is that 99% of bars in MKE don't know how to properly pour a Guinness. Even worse, when confronting an improperly poured Guinness, I've been told to take it or leave it.
