It's official, I've switched from Foster's to Smithwick's, which is a Guinness beer.


Smithwick's is one my favorites too!!!!


I like rich, strong, red, beers, but not too strong (like Guinness itself). Smithwick's and Foster's may not be red beers, but they're close to the same quality of a typical red beer.

The odd part is, I've been drinking Foster's for decades now and finally found something better (here in the American market anyway). But at times, Foster's can be kind of skunky - I don't know why unless it's old or abused in shipping at times. But Smithwick's is always good - at least so far.

(Edit for bad English...)

I rediscovered reds earlier this week: BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse opened in Redmond and they have a very decent red. I will make them one of my regular places.

I too like strong beers. I prefer the dark beers to the reds myself. My favorite is Guinness Draught. I like it better than the extra stout. I have been drinking Smithwick's for years and it never disappoints!!! I used to be able to find Beamish stout but haven't seen it here in the Midwest for a long time.

I was lucky enough to take a trip to Dublin, Ireland once and I tried the Guinness Draught there. It was terrific. They'd make cool designs in the foam (or head) and make you wait to drink it. (No, you can't drink it right after they pour it! You have to wait 2-3 minutes.). But somehow it's not as good out of the bottle here (to me). Now, I don't always stay in Ireland, but when I do, I drink Guinness Draught.

I found that I can buy Chimay's Red Cap beer at my local liquor store! It's terrific, but pricey. The bottle even had a cork in it and it has 7% alcohol, like most wine, too! Maybe I'll buy it on special occasions.

7% alcohol like most wine??? What sort of wine have you been drinking? Wines from grapes mostly have between 11% and 15% alcohol, although in Germany I've seen the odd white as low as 9% (those are definitely unusual). There are some low alcohol pear and apple wines that are around 8 or 9%, but they too are rare; most pear and apple wine is in in the 11% to 14% range.

Of course barely wines range from about 7% to about 15%, maybe that's the kind of wine you meant?

You're right Tom, for some reason I mis-remembered that wine is about 7% alcohol. But it is usually a good bit more, as you say. Even so, 7% is on the higher end for beer.

There are those soccer mom wines like Arbor Mist, etc. which are typically white zinfandel blended with fruit juice and carbonated water. Myself, I'll drink a bottled Sangria imported from Spain on occasion.

This thread has been dormant for a while. Has anyone tried the Knotty Brunette at Twin Peaks? A good dark beer along the lines of Newcastle Nut Brown. And great "sights" to see while you're enjoying it! I just moved to Scottsdale and a local joint called Hopdoddy has locally brewed beers, including a nice black ale. I flew back to Kansas City a couple of weeks ago and sampled the latest Sam Adams Seasonal, which was a nice cream ale with good, rich taste.
