Beamish Irish Stout?

Post by Frankennietzsche » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:54 pm

I read that Beamish Irish Stout was no longer available in America. Also, I just read taht it is owned by Heineken, now. It was always difficult to find and not as famous as Guinness, or even Murphy's, but you could find it. I liked it; even though there wasn't that much difference between them.
Progress, I guess.

I've written to heineken about it a few times with no response. They've withdrawn it from all but the ROI market. It's not the first brand they've done this to and it won't be the last. Pity because Beamish is my favourite of the three

Since 2009, I didn't realize I hadn't bought any in that long but I did have some in Ireland.

I just wish there were some actual drunkards around here who can handle themselves like adults while still acting like retards - liquor&poker

I only had Beamish maybe a handful of times but I definitely preferred it to Guinness and Murphy's. I was only able to find it at one store out this way and was quite bummed to find that it was unavailable in America anymore.
Seriously, fuck heinekin.

I have a fun Beamish story to share:


I worked in a generator factory in Bumblefuck, Nebraska in the early 2000's. I ran a tubing bender, and I was the prickliest prick in the valley until this one asshole came along. Big, bald, bastard. I wish I remembered his name, so I could not use it here. this fucker came along, and he instantly made me look like the perkiest girl scout in the troop.
So, one night, for a reason, I can't recall, the group of unsavouries I partied with at the time decided we were going to drink downtown instead of in the stabatorium we usually hung out in. I got to the place a little earlier than my friends, somehow. I walked in with the Big, Bald, bastard.
After grunting acknowledgements, we headed to the bar. As we worked 2nd shift, the bar was mostly full. We wound up sitting together.
He got my attention, pointing to the sign over the bar. "Beamish stout. Try it?"
We did. The stuff was good. Turns out we had a lot in common, being the sourest fucks in the state. We had a second. After comparing our hatred for all living things, we decided to join those said hated living things, as they had managed to make their way to the bar.
The big bald bastard got off his stool. I got off my stool.
As I hit my feet, I realized gravity wasn't quite in control anymore.
So did the big bald bastard. We locked eyes.
And, realizing that we were drunk, we laughed our asses off.

Beamish was good stuff.
Oh, that? Yeah, I did that, it's my fault. I'm sorry.
