Whether you're drinking green beer for St. Patrick's Day or knocking back a six pack in the middle of March Madness, everyone has a go-to beer of choice. Some prefer dark and more flavorful beers, others mild, while some simply prefer their beer to be cold. Which beer wins out?

Guinness is everyone's favorite Irish dry stout. Beer Advocate describes its taste as "dark, rich, creamy with little fizz and plenty of head and lace," with a scent of coffee and chocolate. 

Guinness has an iconic look and history. According to Delish's Rheanna O'Neil Bellomo, "it all began in 1759 with a 9,000-year lease."

Proprietor Arthur Guinness headed to Dublin and signed a 9,000-year lease on a dilapidated brewery at St. James's Gate. 

Guinness takes its legacy seriously, and the brand makes drinking its beer a special occasion. There's a specific method to pouring when it comes to Guinness on tap:

At the bar, Guinness should be poured into a glass tilted at 45 degrees until it's three-quarters full. Then your barkeep should let it sit for two minutes to settle before topping it off with the quintessential creamy white head.

Don't worry, canned Guinness is specially-formulated to recreate the same taste as Guinness Draught.

Forget light beers, Guinness is the gift that keeps on giving. According to The Daily Meal, Guinness is filled with healthy complex carbs, making it the more nutritious option when compared against light beers on the market. 

Additionally, like Charlie Bamforth, a professor of brewing sciences at the University of California, told CNN, “Because Guinness contains a lot of unmalted barley, which contains more fiber than malted grain, it is also one of the beers with the highest levels of fiber.”

Guinness' benefits don't stop at the bar; it's also an incredible ingredient to cook with. Whether you go for the classic Beef and Guinness Stew, or you opt for the Guinness brownies, this beer adds a "rich, roasted wheat flavor" to any dish.

Although Dos Equis is known for being a Mexican beer, the brand actually has German roots:

Master brewer Wilhelm Haase, who was originally from Germany, dreamed of becoming a legend for brewing Mexican beer. He created Dos Equis lager in 1897 after he immigrated to Mexico. His approach was to combine his love for his homeland with the new and wonderful tastes and traditions of his new home. 

Fans of Dos Equis tout its affordability and "unmatched" smooth taste

Dos Equis knows how dedicated its fans are. The brand launched a commercial in early 2019 featuring a father giving a toast to the beer at his daughter's wedding, instead of to the happy newlyweds. The entire wedding party seems to agree with the sentiment, as do fans of the beer.

Plus, where would we be without the most interesting man in the world? According to Money.com

It’s been almost a decade since we first heard the now-iconic phrase, “I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Does Equis.”

The leading man himself, Jonathan Goldsmith, has since been retired, but his legacy will live on. For nearly a decade, the "Hemingway-esque bearded man engaging in various globetrotting adventures," taught everyone an unforgettable lesson: Dos Equis is always a good choice.
