Guinness 250 Anniversary

guinness 250 anniversary stout
As you read this, I'm probably passed out in Las Vegas - hopefully in my hotel room at the Encore and not in a strip club - from way too much alcohol consumption. In fact, since I decided about a week-and-a-half ago to go on a three week pseudo spring break, I've had more beer than most self-respecting frat pledge. With another 10 days or so before the end of my vacation, there are still plenty of steins and growlers to put away.

One beer that I'll definitely have to add to the drink list is the limited edition Guinness 250 Anniversary Stout which was created to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the lease signing of the famous St. James' Gate Brewery in Dublin. According to the guys at Uncrate, the beer is fizzier, maltier and has higher alcoholic content than regular Guinness. A six pack costs $10 and will only be available for the next six months.
