Guinness-Stout-1817

In 1817, Guinness sent eight “hogsheads” of beer to South Carolina for consumption in America. Since that time, Guinness has enjoyed a profitable relationship with the U.S., sending far more beer these days to our shores. To celebrate the 200th year of doing so, Guinness dipped into their archives to brew a new Export Stout based on the one sent many moons ago. Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout is brewed just like Benjamin Guinness brewed it in 1817, with black patent malt, which is a sort of precursor to roasted barley. The result is a 6% ABV stout that pours a dark ruby red and packs notes of caramel and roasted coffee. Look for it on shelves stateside soon.

Coffee-Scoop-Bag-Clip-IF2

Digging for the scoop in a bag of coffee means you’re going to get grounds stuck under your fingernails. Not clamping that bag shut when you’re done means those grounds could also end up all over your shelf. The Coffee Scoop Bag Clip solves both those problems. The stainless steel Coffee Scoop Bag Clip has a 1 tablespoon measuring cup on the end of the clip for easy scooping and sealing.
