My friend Gerry, a now-retired VP from Anheuser-Busch in Merrimack, always nudged us in the direction of serving beer in a glass.  In my younger days, I scoffed, taking the bottle and telling him not to bother.  I was quite convinced over time, but last night became absolutely convinced.  I grabbed a bottle of Guinness late while typing at the computer, tipped it back and decided this was a different, entirely inferior beverage to the one I usually drink.

I can develop theories as to why, including CO2, or taste buds on the front of the tongue versus the back, but it doesn't matter.  It's a different beverage, and that is all that need be said.

You won't have this problem with whisky.

I think Gerry should start a nanno brewery.
