GT, itís hard to pinpoint, but a lot of what you say is weirdly direct and condescending. Of course Craig is from Scotland. When the fuck else will we be anywhere near there? And I wasnít planning on ordering Guinness? My bad. Iíll order the other two enormously famous and worldly available dry stouts. Never heard of them in my years in the business. I just hope I can find some Killianís!

Goddamn just let some locals chime in and give us a good time. Weíll bring tons of beer from FL amd WI!


Da fuq? This is easily the least offensive post Iíve made all week. Wasnít being smug. I think you are reading too much into it. Plus, like chriso said, ratebeer isnít exactly teeming with Irish members.

Did a quick trip (long layover) in Dublin last year. Stopped into The Porterhouse... which was very nice. My favorite part though was the bartender. A guy walks in and orders Smithwicks, she sharply says "Sir youíve entered a brewery, we donít have that here and we donít serve anything with that little flavor" He apologized for his ignorance and ordered something else.
We need more of this in the United States.
