New York Taste…of Mind

Took a little time off to get my head right. I thought about whats next for PFU and for me in general. Along my journey, I’ve been faced with haters and folks who try to lay obstacles on my path to greatness. I almost let them get under my skin but I realized how far PFU has grown and the potential. So I decided to celebrate my greatness by attending New York Magazine Taste event. I’ve been going to this event for a very long time and it keeps getting better every year. Some of NYC’s best chef  threw down.

BREWSKI OF THE WEEK: Guinness Extra Stout

Welcome to the inaugural post of  Brewski of the week . This first post should actually be called my favorite brewski of all time. In the upcoming weeks I will feature craft beers and some throwbacks. For this post, I will feature my hands down go to brew for many years. The love affair actually started when I was young. When I was a youth, every now and then my parents would treat me to a punch. I always thought the punch was more like a milkshake thick, creamy and sweet. One of the main ingredients of the concoction was Borden Eagle Brand condensed milk ,a sprinkle of nutmeg and of course Guinness. Yes, I’ve been drinking Guinness since I was a young buck. I was about seven or eight years old when I had my first taste. I can remember at family bbq’s when I was like fourteen, my pops would just walk right pass me and not say a word if he saw me chugging on a Guinness.

Some might wonder, “Why is Guinness so popular with the Jamaican community?” Since the 1800’s Guinness has been brewed by Desnoes & Geddes in the heart of Kingston, Jamaica. Besides water and tea, I would say Guinness is probably the most consumed beverage I’ve had to date. Trust me, the taste of the barley in the Guiness is not for everybody. Fun fact, Guinness also has less calories then the standard beer. For anyone who has read this post, go to your local pub and order some of that black gold because Guinness “Is Good For You”.
