Battle of the Brews
Welcome to Blog reader Mike B. writes:
My name is Mike Beckmann. I'm from St. Louis, Missouri
and, I'm sorry, but you're wrong! Guinness is a BEER and a
great one in my opinion! For your information, it's not
"maple syrup," it is a dark, heavy beer! Nothing
against Corona, which I also like to drink on Cinco de
Mayo but Guinness is my favorite beer.
One more thing: I have gone to the Brewery where Guinness is
made in Dublin, Ireland the Capitol of Ireland. The name of
the brewery, by the way, is St. James Gate Brewery. If
you don't enjoy Guinness then you can get either Harp
or Smithwick's also made by the St. James.
P.S. Blog, once again, you are wrong!
Mike was responding to this post from way back in August. Despite my Irish roots, I'm no fan of Guinness and I much prefer the silky smooth taste of a refreshing Corona. As far I'm concerned, Mike is as wrong as wrong can be. On the other hand, maybe my tastebuds have no, well, taste. To settle this, once and for all, I've decided to turn this hoppy debate over to y'all. That's right, it's time for another ridiculous Welcome to Blog poll.
Let's settle this once and for all. Which is the better brew? Thirst-quenching, "Nectar of the Gods" Corona or revolting, thicker than motor oil, stand a fork up in it Guinness? Yes, St. Patrick's Day is only a few days away but don't let that influence your vote. Clear your mind, feel the Force and then vote.
May the better beer win.
