Random Thoughts While Sitting In The Pub

Sipping my pint of Guinness wondering why did the brewery decided to push Extra Cold? I can understand offering the option. Perhaps to encourage those that would normally not drink Guinness to try it Extra Cold. But why actively try to change current Guinness drinkers to 'come to the cold side'? It frustrates me when the pubs only serve Extra Cold. To me Guinness looses its flavour when served this way, its no longer Guinness, its just cold stout.

I'm liking the music that's currently being played in the background. Its a mix, probably something the child tending bar put together. The current tune is an acoustic singer/songwriter. My favorite, just the human voice and simple guitar. I fade in and out not really listening to the lyrics but enjoying the vibe. However, I do pick out something about Heaven and Hell being satisfied. Then the boy professing to follow you into the dark.

Men don't really say things like that. But the songs and movies out there want to continue the woman's fantasy that they do.

What a load of rubbish.

My sandwich was good though.

BTW pub was The Drawing Room, great place. Go there.

This is a different concoction than just plain Guinness? Or is it just served at a very cold temperature?

I've never heard of Extra Cold, but it just seems wrong. Serving beer extra cold is something you do with crap beer to lessen the taste...

Never heard of Extra Cold, though I imagine they only serve Guinness cold here in the US. My wife is part Irish and her favorite beer is Guinness. It's just sooo expensive here.

Anyhow, just wanted to tell you thanks for stopping by my blog. Long time, no see :)
