Mussels in Guinness & Garlic

This recipe is based on one of the most popular starters at "The Brazen Head" in Dublin, Ireland. This pub is reputed as not only the oldest in Dublin, but also as one of the oldest pubs in all of Ireland...serving patrons for 800 years. "The Brazen Head" is known for providing good food and drink, traditional Irish music, and, of course, lively conversation. Pub grub has always been some of my favorite food. Don't wait for St. Patrick's Day to enjoy this wonderful dish!!!

    It was okay, I like it with a dry white wine better, lots of onions and some red pepper flakes.
