Did you know Guinness is 250 years old? Take that, Alexander Keith’s 214th birthday.

Here’s a recipe for Guinness poutine, via

Guinness Poutine

Makes 4 portions


  • ½ cup Guinness
  • 1 cup brown Gravy
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp corn Starch
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Bring Guinness and gravy to a simmer. Mix corn starch with water and add to simmering sauce while stirring. Simmer 2 min, remove from stove

Add butter to hot sauce and incorporate. Season to taste.


  • 8oz fries, per person
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • 1/3 cup Guinness Gravy, per person
  • 2oz package cheese curds

Deep fry fries until crisp and golden brown. Drain and season with sea salt. Place in bowl, pour hot Guinness gravy over the fries and top with the cheddar curds.

I’d argue that the curds should go on before the sauce and I also usually prefer chicken gravy on poutine, but otherwise this sounds pretty fantastic.
