I got some import beer from Ireland. When I finished it I realised there was a ping pong ball thing in there. What's up with that?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Widget_(beer)

and as far as Guinness goes, I don't like the cans, it was just rather...uninspiring (though I probably should have used a proper pint glass for it and not just the first random glass I found so I could have poured it all in one go), I found the bottle a bit better....
but its an entirely different experience on tap, a completely different thing (now I just have to finance myself a trip to Ireland to verify this idea entirely)

That is to make the beer foam up more when you pour so you get some good head... not the good kind but the beer kind.

Yeah... it releases nitrogen when you open the can.
Did you like it? I find guiness kinda reminds me of black olives for some odd reason.

you didn't drink it straight from the can did you? you aren't supposed to do that because the widget won't work properly. and Guinness is awesome, not as good as some of the local brewery stout here, but still good.

Guinness is delicious, but don't try getting drunk off it. It's like drinking bread.



I compared it to motor oil once. I stand by that being the best comparison.

I think that most of the people who say they love beer are just saying it too keep up some sort of appearance because it's actually the most vile fucking drink ever.

7 isn't really all that 'drunk' though, is it?
I've done that many times and been fine - it's only about 4%.

Indeed. I think you definitely have to get used to it. I remember when I couldn't drink beer at all, without retching, i only drank cheap cider, but as I matured to the Earth conqueringly intelligent God I am now (lulz) i enjoyed beer much more. I drink it more than any other drink now - aside from tea.

Guinness from the tap is amazing. Tastes pretty horrible from cans though.

7 pints will get nearly all people happily wankered. Unless you only believe that being drunk is the same as reaching the point when you've puked up your pelvis, 7 pints will get most people to a rather pleasing level of drunkenness.

YOU'RE ALL WRONG!!!!!

the widget is rigged so that the second you open it it releases the CO2 carbonating it in a split second thus leaving the beer as if it had just finished brewing, freshness.... on a side noe the rapid decompression of the CO2 chamber will also drop the temp a few degrees for a colder beer....
