And so you should. People with taste don't want to mingle with commoners, especially these days, god knows what they'd catch off you and your polyester leisurewear.

The pour is irrelevant.

It's funny how the new being a beer snob is 'I can't stand beer snobs'.

Why would somebody who doesn't like standard brewery p1ss like Heineken be an arsehole.

It's just different taste and none of it is compulsary.

We're not in America. Hipsters don't all speak American either.

Mate is not normal in Ireland either.

'No you're grand, dude', I answered back.


The Guinness was lovely btw, and I polished off 8 of them within the time we were allowed stay in the pub.


You sound like the dork.

Would "Shcan", "Sham", or "Boss" be okay?

Maybe "Bud" or "Buddy"

I fcking want a Guinness reading this.

Guinness is all about balance.

The taste of it is not something I think about too frequently; It tastes like Guinness.

I'm in love with the texture, the way it hits the back of your throat, the velvety quality of a really good and cold brand new pint.

Guinness strikes, for me, the perfect balance between some heaviness and some smoothness. Other stouts are either too heavy or too light, or too stuffed with out of place flavourings, designed to give some personality. Guinness is just right.

The whole good v bad pint debate isn't really about taste in my eyes. A bad pint is just alright, a good pint is creamy, refreshing and delicous and goes down before you even know it's happened.

Though, I must confess to have never drunk Guiness from a can. Doesn't feel right to me.

Can't say I've ever met any beer snobs, I've met plenty pricks that talk out their holes about good and bad porter though

I’d definitely be one that drinks little other than small Irish brewery stuff these days. That said, someone who tells you what you should and should not want to drink is a pain in the flute.
If you want some Belgian monk stuff, grand. If you want Peroni or Coors then grand too. Enjoy.

I love beer

Guinness, but not Craft Stout
Heineken but not Craft Lager
IPAs, but not DIPAs
Citra Beers, but not Saison
Pale Ale but not Red Ale

There is no right or wrong, only what you like and what you don't

Red ale is a funny one. I've drank some that were really tasty and then others that were terrible. Like genuinely terrible, vaguely tasted like vomit.
