Guinness- Another pioneering company that became synonymous with a style of beer. For many years this was the only option available for stouts and a beer that popularized both the stout and the black and tan. Like a Swiss Army Knife, you always have options when you see Guinness on tap at your local bar due to the many mixes it can be part of. You could do a whole book just on the various Guinness Stout cocktails that can be created. This is a unique beer as when first introduced to it I considered to be heavy, bitter and filling due to few alternatives to compare it to. Now, I consider it my light, summery stout of choice. Surprisingly light in calories for it's appearance and with a creamy consistency Guinness is one of the lighter craft beer options out there.
