    Not at all - I know many who've really enjoyed Guiness and Jameson visits on this side of the Pond.

    I remember going to the Coors plant in Golden, CO. I'd never drunk Coors beer before and left thinking it was some of the greatest stuff in the world. Then I bought a 6-pack after getting home and realized that either (1) they switched it on me or (2) the can does truly awful stuff to the taste. :(

    Still, it was a better tour than the Budweiser plant outside Vacaville, CA. My current favorite is the Red Hook plant in Woodinville, WA, where you not only get enough tastings to leave drunk but also learn some useful stuff. Now I think of grapefruits when I drink IPA and can finally tolerate an entire pint.

    You also have the two wineries next door, Chateau Ste Michelle and Columbia Winery :)

    The lounge in DUB stocks cans of Guinness, if you need an extra incentive. ;)

    And the Woodinville Whiskey Co. down the street. I've done the trifecta of wine, beer, and whiskey tastings, although I have to say I don't really care for Washington wine at all.

    I really enjoyed the Guinness tour, and the pint at the end was one of the best we had in Dublin. Plus you can't beat the view from the bar at the top. Closer to home, I enjoy the Anchor Brewing Co. tour on Portrero Hill in SF. Plenty to drink at the end, and very informative to boot (pun not intended).
