Always happy to brighten your day, Ross.
Thank you, sir.
I was able to only have Guinness Draught Stout once on tap just before the shutdown. I know Eric & Hagwood have spoken highly of it in a can also, so I bought a 4-pack on sale when I was in Walgreens to enjoy tonight. Guinness Draught Stout obviously doesn't have much of a foamy head out of the can. It would probably pair well with some dark rich chocolate to nibble on after dinner.
Shopping in my 1989 Kevin O'Farrell.

The empty cans of the Guinness Draught Stout rattle & seem to have some sort of nitrogenator inside? I'm tempted to cut open a can to see what it is.
I scrounged around & found 3-4 pcs of some Heath candy & nibbling on the chocolate & toffee center went well with the Stout.
Funny you should post that, Jack! Because perhaps my favourite drink is the so-called Black & Blue or Eclipse
The citrus of the Blue Moon gives a little zing to the Guinness.
And thanks to Hurricane Jack, who made this pic possible! At the Downtown Vegas Festival of Beer before the shutdown, wearing the Caribou Strat I bought from him.
Never heard of the Black & Blue by any name. I'm a fan of most 2-pulls so I'll have to give that one a try.
Glad to see you are enjoying the Strat, Richard! It looks great on you. And glad the festival didn't have to be cancelled. I had tickets to an Irish beer & Whiskeyfest for March 14th, but the pandemic was already ramping up by then & the event had to be cancelled.
Haven’t tried that combo before. At our local pub we had a mix of Guinness and Magner’s cider they called Black Velvet. I enjoyed that for a while.
I'm remembering this Draught from a tap back on March 1. Thick & creamy mouth feel.
I cut open an empty to find a small ping pong ball. I don't think a widget in a can is quite the same as a Draught.
Home with the cap I brought (to work). The long day finds me relaxing watching the stars "move" sipping a Guinness Draught.
Coincidence - yes. Statistically not so surprising as I do have a bunch or Stout, Foreign, and Draught in my beer refrigerator.
Cheers this evening. BTW; The stars are not moving very quickly.
A fitting end to a long day for a thinking man.

^^^^^ Nice pairing @Ross Young
Excellent and of course pics with dogs win! Dogs make us be better humans.
Home shortly ago. Shower, change of "costume" and a dog soirée finds me relaxing while sipping a Guinness Extra Stout. Not the Draught tonight as I was desiring "more." More roasted flavor is what I desired at this moment. My neighborhood is 86' with 65% humidity. The feel like temp is 93'f. Ufda - tonight is crazy temps for Minnesota and I have been craving some bitter roast with a dry finish. During the day I finished 2 quarts of water, a couple cold press coffees and a bottle of electrolyte fluid as my liquids. I sweated all of it away and have not yet needed to have a lavatory break. The Stout hits the SPOT! Excellent. I may have a second one a bit later.
As to food. Who wants food when the weather is like ours? Not me. Perhaps some popcorn later. I am off to spot and watch the loons on the lake.
Cheers folks! Eric -
That is an excellent idea. I will have to work that option into this weekends at home festivities. I have some ciders and several different Guinness options. Thanks!
Dog soirée started and completed before the sun got much above the horizon. Very warm weather coming today and I am efforting to get my tasks started early. I am gratefully sipping some fresh single source, San Victor, Guatemala Coffee.
I belong to Atlas Coffee Club that sends coffee each 2 weeks. The tasting notes suggest almond milk, honey and caramel. I have had a cup of black and now a cup with a bit of Half and Half.
My tired morning face is disappearing.
Cheers, Eric -
Hot and sweaty this mid-morning after chores meant a shower, change of clothes, brunch and cold press coffee. I used some Caribou Coffee Brazilian medium roast. 12+ hours later it is hitting the spot.
Cheers, Eric -
A couple years ago the band I play in invaded Belching Beaver in San Diego, we had played all day at the San Diego Highland Games. We marched in playing, did a few tunes, and didn't have to buy a drink the rest of the night!
As far as hats go, we wear the Glengarry (you can see one on the table) when we're playing, and those band-logo baseball caps when we're not playing.
BTW my favourite Belching Beaver is their Mosaic Double IPA, it's amazing.
Cheers, Doc Jones! Thanks for sharing. I’m living in LA area and my fav summer Weekend activities are brewery trips. Always been meaning to spend a long weekend down in SD area again, Stone alone is worth it for going down but always wanted to checkout BB. It will have to wait for now but good to know it’s a cool spot, live music is always a plus in my book too!
