Guinness Beer from Costco

10 Comments

18 cans of Guinness sell for $20.99 at Costco.  That's $1.17 a can.  Considering a cup of coffee is $2.00, I think it's a reasonable price.  Still, Guinness is priced two times more than cheaper domestic beers.  Guinness is imported beer from Ireland.

I favor expensive beers because I am not a drinker.  I rarely drink any alcoholic beverages.  I drink maybe 1 can of beer a month. 

Also, I don't like the taste of beer.  All beers taste bitter to me.  Expensive beers tend to taste less yucky, so when I drink beer, I go for expensive ones. 

Costco beer, Guinness

I bought the beer mug from Bed Bath & Beyond for $5.00.  Cold frosty mug makes beer drinking experience more enjoyable.

These are 11.2 oz. cans, not the standard 12 oz. Also this is Guinness "Draught," a far cry from Extra Stout, the brew Guinness is famous for. "Draught" is an unfortunate misstep by Guinness.

Hey, thanks.

I didn't know about "Extra Stout" & "Draught". I thought all Guinness beers were the same.
So.. I've been missing out all this time?
Expect to see "Extra Stout" on my next beer picture.

draught is better and is the original beer that the company is actually known for. extra stout is only more popular in the U.S.

I bought Extra Stout this time. They taste lighter than Draught.

Draught has thick chocolate quality... as if you can eat as breakfast. To me, Drought seems fancier than Extra Stout.

Extra Stout seemed "normal" - nothing special.

Of course, I don't drink beer. I don't drink period. I drank about 3 beers this year so far. I am no fun :(

Stay thirsty my friend, hehe...

It's the 14.9 oz cans (BJ's has the same deal), and the Draught is the one you want from Guinness.

I haven't seen this in any of my regional (South Florida) Costco's since early 2011. Has it been discontinued or do I just need to petition the local managers to bring it back.....

I always look for Guinness when I go to Costco.
I didn't see Guinness at Costco for 2-3 years, I think.

Yes, I saw them also.
I didn't buy it because it was a lot of beer.
I only drink like 4 cans of beer a year.

Yes, definitely good price. And Guinness Draught is the world famous beer, Extra Stout is popular here in the US. I went on the brew tour in Dublin and highly suggest it to anyone that visits.
