There are many celebrities these days drinking the black stuff including actress Gwyneth Paltrow, however should women drink Guinness and more importantly do they know how to drink Guinness? It has appeared in the past a pub in Limerick would not let women join in with a tasting session for the drink, instead stating Guinness was for men only. When questioned regarding this matter they stated this time they were only sampling male drinkers, however it does pose the question how many women are actually drinking the stuff?
Research shows Guinness is actually good for you and is very popular among pregnant women. Guinness may prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks. It is also alleged to be high in iron, therefore helping pregnant women. With the UK having a big market for the black stuff, Nigeria in Africa have the second biggest market for Guinness. This may seem heard to believe as a large population live below the poverty line. However even those below the poverty line will spend their money on a pint of Guinness!
Recently celebrities such as Gemma Atkinson have been pictured drinking Guinness but WITHOUT letting the head settle on their pint. This is a major no-no when it comes to drinking Guinness. It is vital girls who drink Guinness actually know how to drink their pint. Women drinking Guinness is apparently one of the biggest turn-offs when it comes to going on a date, stating girls drinking Guinness is a bit too manly.
So as it seems men do not like women drinking Guinness. Is this just another one of their ‘man things’ us girls aren’t supposed to be a part of? Who knows? All we know is Guinness IS popular among women pregnant or not, celebrity or poverty stricken, man or woman, who cares? If it makes you feel good and you drink responsibly who are men to object! If you type ‘women drinking Guinness’ into Google you will find a beauty of girls drinking the black stuff and so be it. Enjoy girls!
