Derp. Just realised that I meant Rioja when I wrote Shiraz earlier in the thread. Shows how cultured I am! Yeah, Guinness is certainly made for the Irish climate! Weizenbier is very nice, I agree. Ever tried Kölsch? It's a beer made with ale yeast but still a lager. Kind of half way between a lager and a bitter, and very refreshing on a hot day.
