In this week's column, I turn my taste buds to Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, the hoppier, stronger, bittersweet version of classic Guinness. It's like regular Guinness, but with a craft beer spin — and finally available in American for the first time since Prohibition. Curious? Check out the full review at Slashfood. Drink it up!

Speakeasy Big Daddy I.P.A. - Beer of the Week

That bottle looks so...shifty!

A new year, a new beer. Lord, will anyone ever let me sober up? If there's ever a time to dry out, it's now. The past month has been a Roman orgy of excess, of too many late-night whiskeys, of thirds on cheesecake. How can I ever drink a beer again? Easy: Make it as delicious as this Speakeasy Big Daddy. This Bay Area–IPA is a sure-fired easy-drinker, with restrained bitterness and a smoothness that makes you want to sip it again and again. Curious? Thirsty? Drink it up!
