Emporium Beginners Luck Weizenbock 6.7% Cat was unimpressed but I thought it was pretty good. Not great but definitely good. Had a fierce head on it and was surprisingly cloudy too.

Small Gods / Maltkult collab 'Satan Satan Satan' gunpowder bock 7.2% - not bad, the smokiness is fairly subdued and the flavours are pretty good. Not bad. Certainly a toasty winter warmer. Extra marks for the textured can base.

Wheat beer I grabbed for my wife - Cold Springs Brewing in Cape May, New Jersey. I was focusing (literally) more on the interesting crowler they used. Helpful when pouring her a pint as I’m not a wheat beer fan and we can seal it back up in the fridge for later. I’m more of an APA/IPA/Kolsch guy myself.

I do not like Guinness so our beer of choice while in Ireland was Carlsberg.

Have you actually had a Guinness before? Because most people who say that have never actually had one and are just scared because it looks so black. It is actually a light beer you know.

I have had many Guinness draws in England and Ireland on previous trips. I have tasted beer all over Europe when I would go to the breweries with a beer importer who was interested in certain brands. I would look at the contracts, taste beer with my opinion being somewhat similar to the importer and neither of us wanted to drink nor import Guinness which was okay with Guinness since they were already imported into America. Yes, I have tasted it often with the same result----don't like the taste.

Trivia 1 - I have heard the Guiness brewed in NZ under license is apparently pretty great; like the best you can get outside Ireland (altho' maybe thats something every regional licensed brewery says - I may also be confusing Guiness with locally brewed Heineken, its all beer afterall...)

Trivia 2 - Talking to a few people from Ireland (by no means an extensive sample and likely statistically insignificant), there is a school of thought among the locals along the lines of people preferring alternatives to Guiness as the family own a lot of stuff and its better to support small local breweries in Ireland than an enormous global brand.

Being for the small guy might enter some people's thoughts when deciding what to drink. In my case, I just do not care for the taste. Granted, tastes change. When I was brewery hopping years ago, I liked the Bavarian beers which were kind of heavy and now I prefer the slightly astringent Pils or Kolsch. My first taste of Guinness was in the 70's and I did not like it and my order was always "anything but a Guinness". I drank Harp mainly. The later trips made me a Carlsberg fan.

I know what you talk about. Had similar thoughts back then. Thought Guinness was "ok" (I even was at their brewery). But preffered Kilkenny when I was there.
(more irish than Carlsberg also :) (nothing wrong with Carlsberg, it is probably the best beer in the world after all))
