Guinness have set out (pretty successfully) to turn St Patrick’s Day into International Guinness Day but their’s wasn’t the only stout about this week.

For example, Cask in Pimlico (http://boakandbailey.com/2010/02/13/pump-creep/) had the brilliant, Guinness-baiting Sussex Extra Stout (http://boakandbailey.com/2009/01/04/brighton-binge/), while Shepherd Neame rolled out their own tastefully branded (ahem) Double Stout (http://www.shepherd-neame.co.uk/beers/index.php?Double_Stout).

Could it be that the market is managing to do for stout in March what CAMRA is trying so hard to achieve for mild in May (http://www.camra.org.uk/page.aspx?o=188642)? We’d love to stouts and porters other than Guinness on sale in more pubs during the rest of the year, but this is a start.
