At least, for their superb stout, anyway. I swear I've had stuff that tasted a lot different in the Caribbean and PK has unearthed a tidbit that says it's a different recipe in Nigeria. Are there any other places around the world with different brews?

Going back to your earlier question, Siasl...

I remember the chief copywriter for Guinness Africa also telling me that the precious Black Stuff in Nigeria wasn't the same as the dear ebony droplets that we neck here.

It had something to do with the type of grain that Guinness had to use for its Nigerian Guinness because of some Nigerian grain import ban or other.

Apparently, though, it must still taste pretty good because the locals lap it up by the tankerload.

I can't remember all the details, perhaps someone else knows?
