Not sure about that, the Irish Post served a lot of Irish people living in GB well over the years especially in the days before modern technology.

It’s a ridiculous article. 

Nigeria has 200 million people and a Guinness brewery. Of course it sells more than Ireland. 

What about per capita?

I bought device in dunnes they were on sale in the off license beside where they were selling the cans. Looks like Tesco and other offos selling too so should find handy enough.
They also don’t count as alcohol if you are using vouchers in the supermarket

Wow.  I must try.  Do you have to pay extra for the nitrogen thing? I haven't seen them yet.  Or is it part of the can itself?

This could be a game changer (hate that term)
Guinness cans are muck.  The head on them is a crappy potholed marked mess and the taste is watery and skank.

It’s night and day between your regular Draught can with widget and this new set up. 

Definitely best cans of Guinness I’ve ever had.
There is a reusable nitro surge device you buy for 25. This device you attach to the specific nitro surge can (normal cans don’t work). You turn the device on and do a double pour tilting as per instructions. The head was lovely and creamy and kept all the way through the pint (needs to be a clean Guinness class for each can as well to ensure it’s absolutely right).
The cans were 15 EUR for 6 so 2.50 a can but they also 550Ml around so fill right exactly to the very top of the Guinness glass with a perfect dome like you would get out of tap if poured right. 
They need to be right temp too, made mistake on first one it wasn’t cool enough and wasn’t as smooth or nice. They say 24 hours in fridge (so probably 60 mins in freezer from warm)

Well the Germans beat them 13-0 and the Czechs beat them 7-0 so that suggests they are tightening things up at the back

Need to give the liver a break so picked up 4 cans of the 0.0 to compliment my evening watching Rovers and the Ryder Cup. I have to say , its by far the best non alcoholic option I've had.

It's more watery than the real stuff, but it tastes pretty decent. Smells good and pours a good head. I'd go as far as to say I've had sh*ter pints of the real stuff in a few establishments down through the years.

I dont think I'd knock 8-10 back now,  but overall I'm impressed

Will be my go to non-alcoholic for now on as with Guinness it's not only about the alcohol but the taste and the look and feel of it going down. Whereas the likes of erlinger just tease ya and don't even taste as nice as real thing



 

Is it less calories? Because if its basically the same I'd probably rather drinkwater or coke zero if I was off the alcohol 

Its only 85 cals and I'd much rather the taste of a beer versus a coke and drink water and coffee all the time anyway so when in a pub or social event and can't drink then the non alcoholic is the best thing you can get really.

But if it tastes the same as the alcohol version why wouldn’t you have one? Do you drink alcohol just to get a buzz or because it tastes nice?



Does anybody really drink alcohol for the taste? I certainly dont anyway.
Yes. Love the taste. If I didn’t I wouldn’t drink it. 

Plus 1. Crave a beer or stout and it's not just for the alcohol. 

Darn tootin.
If you were drinking it just for the alcohol - you'd be drinking spirits etc...

Love a few pints of Guinness Heart

85 cals on a 500ml can, so roughly half the cals of normal  Guinness.

Most of the calories in Beers comes from the Alcohol, that's what the 6-7% craft beers have more calories than the 4.2% draft lagers. Most non-Alcoholic beers I drink (330ml bottles) would be about 50 cals
