Yes, Guinness is good, so heavy stuff that you don't need to eat anything. 
But although I have the beers listed on my page, I don't drink beer that
often.  And while coding, I don't usually eat or drink anything; I won't
leave the computer until I'm so hungry or thirsty that I absolutely must
eat or drink something.

I just returned from the conference trip from Lisbon and Berlin.  I tried
some local beers.  Maybe I have been without beer for too long time; I
didn't taste much difference between them.  Time to go to Germany for
another 6 months (like I did in 1994) and to gain 10 kg of additional
weight during that time, I guess. :-)

Did you know that in Swedish beer is called öl (which is the German word
for oil)? Maybe it is because beer lubricates the brain. :-)
