This week as Bob and I continue our month of beers from the UK we take on the most famous category, well at least on St. Patrick’s Day, the Dry Irish Stout. A beer that is often misunderstood and completely miscategorized by the novice beer drinker. Contrary to many people’s beliefs this beer is not thick, chewy, and sweet. Instead the dry Irish stout presents a light to medium body and finishes very dry. So, grab a beer,  sit back and enjoy our Hijinx as we unravel the amazing Dry Irish Stout. Style examples: 

  • Murphy’s Irish Stout
  • North Coast Brewing Old #38 Stout
  • Pizza Port Seaside Stout
  • ABV: 3.8-5.0%
  • IBUs: 25-45
  • Color: 25-40

 Our sample beer for the week: Guinness Draught 4.2% 45 IBU  Beer as described by brewer: Swirling clouds tumble as the storm begins to calm. Settle. Breathe in the moment, then break through the smooth, light head to the bittersweet reward.

Unmistakably GUINNESS, from the first velvet sip to the last, lingering drop. And every deep-dark satisfying mouthful in between.

Pure beauty. Pure GUINNESS.

Guinness Draught is sold in kegs, widget cans, and bottles. The ABV varies from 4.1 to 4.3%.
