Picked this up in Tesco just for something different, and that's me instantly converted from Guinness on the Irish stout front.

Had the intention of showing a nicely poured pint, but it was too tasty.

Back in the 90s, when there was hostility towards Guinness, Murphy's and Caffrey's and Beamish were going to conquer. Never quite happened.

Guinness is utter pish now. Espacially canned/bottled but the pints are bland and thin too. There seems to be a commonly held theory that they changed the recipe not that long ago and its been pish since. Last time I bought it for research purposes I was genuinely quick taken aback by how shit it was.

As I said in another thread just the other day, Caffrey's was my go-to pint back in the day (even though I got some abuse for it, accused of simply trying to be different).  Loved it.

I’ve been to Cork quite a few times in my job (past 2 years aside) and down there, they aren’t called the “Rebel County” for nothing. The locals dislike most outsiders, particularly Dubliners lol. The Murphy’s is the local stout and the drink of choice in the city and in the wider county. You’ll still see Guinness but that’ll be for tourists mainly. 
 

It is a lovely drink and I could fair go a pint of Murphy’s now.

I just dropped a random streetview point in the middle of Cork, and this is the first thing I saw.  :lol:

The main tourist bar with live music nightly is the Oliver Plunkett.  Used to smile at British tourists happily clapping along to the bands, as according to a local girl I spoke to one night, the bands will be back across in the Northside bars after their gig playing the uncensored version of the same family- friendly “Rebel Songs” lol.

Anyway, there’s not a lot better than a night in Cork with a few Murphy’s and a big plate of Irish Stew.

Excellent Imperial Stout from Spey Valley and a bargain at £1.99 from Lidl.
Just bought what looked to be the last bottle in my local Lidl on my way home from work- looking forward to trying it. Enjoying a bottle of Orkney's Puffin which I picked up at the same time. Very nice with a spicy aftertaste. f94c6800ade41ba806d1ea254ccf30e5.jpg
