Pint-Sized Ireland: In Search of the Perfect Guinness : Guinness was very much an acquired taste for Evan McHugh, an Australian raised on Vegemite, but he set out to acquire it. Determined to discover exactly what makes a pint of Guinness so legendary, he crosses the Emerald Isle in search of his answers. But he soon realizes that each town, and each pub, always says that the best glass is to be found . . . somewhere else. In a comedic and sentimental journey, McHugh and his companion hitch around Ireland, meeting unforgettable characters. He goes rowing with a German bagpiper on the lakes of Killarney, windsurfing with a one-armed man in Dingle, and even finds his own bar, but everywhere locals tell him that the best Guinness is brewed somewhere else. So does he ever find the perfect pot of black gold?
