 Drunk of the Irish    [L]

I am, of course, talking about the incomparable Guinness. Let us not forget its nutritional value:
Guinness proved to be about twice as effective at preventing the blood platelets from clumping and forming the kind of clot that can cause a heart attack, according to the study's main author, John Folts, a professor of medicine and nutritional director of the University of Wisconsin Coronary Thrombosis Research and Vascular Biology Laboratory.
Brennan, like many cardiologists, recommends a drink a day for his cardiac patients. Red wine, in particular, has been shown to help prevent heart attacks. Now maybe it's beer's turn. A University of Wisconsin study last fall found that moderate consumption of Guinness worked like aspirin to prevent clots that increase the risk of heart attacks.
[...]
Guinness has a higher concentration than lighter beers of vitamin B, which lowers levels of homocysteine, linked to clogged arteries. And researchers have found that antioxidants from the moderate use of stout might reduce the incidence of cataracts by as much as 50 percent.
Don't forget to raise a pint to Arthur:
Guinness was a young Christian man who was once walking the streets of Ireland crying out to God, "God do something about the drunkenness on the streets of Ireland." Everyone was getting drunk on whiskey, there were whiskey houses, gin houses, etc. and his cry to God was do something about the alcoholism on the streets of Ireland and he felt God speak to him. In fact he felt God say this: "Make a drink that men will drink that will be good for them."

And if you do partake in Dayton this weekend, this, the most Irish of holidays, quaff one with me at The Dublin Pub.

However, if you're the anti-social type, you can drink at home, yet still get that authentic guinness draft head using The Surger.



I discovered Guinness for myself last summer. This will be my first true St. Paddy's Day! *Drools thinking of the Guinness*
