Default Is Guinness the most overrated beer...ever?

Well....is it?


I had this question come to me from a friend of mine...while drinking a chocolate porter of my own and I really believe there is some validity to the statement. What do you think?

I think Guinness is to beer what Bose is to audio. My dad, I will bring him over different stouts from time to time, Mephisopheles, Bourbon County, Boulevard's dark truth, Young's double chocolate, etc... but he will still treat himself to a Guinness draught. So to him, it's not overrated.

Now, about your screen name, 2JZ or RB26?

To each their own. Personally, I still drink Guinness from time to time.

For me it brings back fond memories of some of my first beer drinking moments. I remember moving to New Orleans after college and having one at an Irish pub in the French quarter. I also remember drinking Guinness at the top of the Marriott tower in Nagoya Japan when I felt like a beer with a little more to it then other Japanese beers and enjoying the view of the city. For me, the memories associated with it make it a great beer.

I think Bud Light is the most overrated beer ever, for sure.

No, not by a long shot.
Nice troll on your first post though.

I had one fresh at the "East of England" show in 1976 that I still dream about. There was a stand from the brewery and they were giving away pints. It must have been at the correct peak and temperature as I have never had another that was close to the "cream." Not that I haven't been trying by getting it on draft when I can. I even like it in the "widget" cans. I like it in a "Black and Tan" and when I am in a pub, that is my choice. Millions cannot be wrong (except for Bud Lite).
