Best Guinness I ever had was in Shannon bridge in Southern Ireland little village with 6 pubs in 200 yards heaven - trouble was the water was so soft (peat bog land)
the tea stewed instantly and after more than 6 glasses of Guinness you had the constant worry of following through and yeah it came out rather like it went in amazing place though loved it like going back in history no rush, pub was also a grocers, fishing tackle shop, and butchers and it was religion for everyone to stand at midnight and respect the national anthem

Best Guinness I ever had was a 'hot` one (rather than `cold`), at the Keadeen hotel. The barman was running up to eight pints at a time; top it up, let it stand, top it up, let it stand etc. As each one was sold, he`d start another pint. There were five in process on the bar at opening time every night. I loved it.

So yes, I agree Whodat, about smacking them upside the head form drinking out of the can. You wouldn't drink good Scotch from a plastic cup, wouldya?
p.s. I do an epic shamrock imprint in a Pint. No cheap rubber stamp like you see around the tourist traps in Dublin, a proper one as the draught Guinness is poured. It`s pretty easy (with a bit of practice), you can try it yerself. Just take a pen on a piece of paper. Hold the pen dead still (that`s the beer-tap) and swirl the paper around (that`s the pint) until you have a perfect Shamrock. Try it, it`s fun, and it`s the basic technique for doing the old Shamrock-in-a-Guinness routine.
