What Ever Happened to Guinness Red?

I first wrote in an entry sometime last year about this new GUINNESS RED I came across in O’Neill’s Irish Bar, Leeds.

Prior to a gig last night, I got craving for another pint of the red stuff; and seen as though me and the girlfriend were close by, we decided to pop in.

Guinness Red was no where to be seen on draft.

A little worried, I asked the barman where it’d gone, and hisshort reply was, “Oh, the brewery isn’t making it anymore.”

So, this must’ve been a limited edition thing, then?

I hope not.

Had a quick look for info on the web when I got back, but couldn’t find anything that says why Guinness isn’t making it/if it’s ever coming back.

If anyone has any answers, get in touch.

The last ever pint?
