Some things are true

See, I knew this was true- Guinness really IS good for you. Like I need a reason to enjoy a pint. At home, of course, for there's no decent pub within forty miles of here. Bars and pubs are endangered species thanks to the sad fantasy that a drop of alcohol in your blood is a major threat to society. This does generate easy gigs for cops who'd rather strut through sobriety checkpoints than do any actual work.
Twenty years ago you could stop after work for a social pint or four and a game of darts at the millgate inn or the corner local without worrying about lurking malcontents with badges. No more. What progress.
