Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Steam.  Steam is coming out of my ears.  I went to the Guinness website, and it asked me to enter my DOB and the country I'm in.  And then I got this:

&^%$#@

I am so mad.

I'm going to go go flout the rules and sensibilities of the country I live in now, by playing some poker.  For money.  And then I'm going dancing.  Somewhere they serve alcohol.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone.  Slainte!  So there.

Of course it isn't, but the more this idiocy continues the more we should do to subvert it.

What on earth does Guinness hope to accomplish by this?

Have a 4, stormy.  To hell with the Guinness website.  In order to help you get back at them, I will be drinking Beamish and Murphy's tonight -- stout for the curious among us, instead of the uber-corporate, "Brilliant" Guinness.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Stout for those who don't like stout you mean. Bleh. Anyway, how are you going to get decent stout? You're in the US now, right?

It's nearly impossible to get decent stout.  I usually just choke down the mass-market stout they stuff into cans for the moronic Yanks (like me).  I do have to say that I enjoy Beamish, though.  (This is actually brewed and bottled in Cork.  Maybe that's why it tastes differently.)  Murphy's doesn't have nearly as much flavor as Beamish and Guinness, in my experience.

Stout for those who don't like stout

As opposed to Guinness which is merely stout for those who don't know what stout is...
