New variations of Guinness now available. Very exciting.

Interesting. Other marketing moves such as the Guinness Toast and Guinness Extra Cold (do I have the name correct?) must not have effectively maintained their sales.

A pint of Guinness has long been one of my favorites. At my old spot in western Massachusetts I put down so much of the stuff I would probably have to estimate total volume in kegs rather than pints. I don't know if Brew 39 will be available in the Seattle area but I'll give it a try if I see it. If you try it, as I'm sure you will, let us know how it is.

Hi Ron

Hopefully I'll be trying it tonight. I'll let you know.

The Guinness extra cold is served nearly as standard everywhere, which I don't agree with. It is nicer on a summer's day, though.

I got to try it last night, and it was very nice. I could easily drink this, alhtough I think I prefer standard Guinness. It was black like Guinness but tasted a bit like one of those creamy ales.
