    Default Bad Bad News!!!!

    Guinness Fire, Dublin

    Shocking News.... DFB have been fighting a fire in the Guinness Brewery in Dublin today. For those of you who have had the pleasure you'll know the finest pint of Guinness that will ever pass your lips comes from the Brewery in Dublin.

    Thankfully it hasn't affected production. Well done to DFB for a job well done in holding the job and my best wishes to the two Brothers who were injured.

    The Guinness up here has been horrible lately.

    Had one at the local restaraunt tonight, and it had absolutely horrible flavor and was completely flat.

    Been having problems with 6 packs being flat, as well

    I had the pleasure of touring the Guinness factory a couple of summers ago. They have a lounge on the top floor (maybe 6-7 floors up) that has a 360 degree glass window view of Dublin. The day my wife and I were there, it was a cool and drizzly day. Sitting up there, sipping a pint that's about a day old, looking over the beautiful city of Dublin. I'm not sure if there is a heaven, but if there is, I wasn't too far away...

    I read that 2 firefighters were hurt fighting the fire..........Dare we ask how? You know those guys are going to get their balls busted when they return to shift.

    I used to know a guy in Merrimack, NH where Anheiser-Busch has a brewery. His motto was something about protecting the brewery for everyone.

    Have had Guiness poured by an actual Irish bartender () and by that pretty barmaid... although not as easy on the eyes the difference in a properly poured is like home made pasta sauce vs that jarred imposter...
