A pint of plain is your only man

And I wouldn't change it for all the tea in China!

Guinness, also called porter or stout was sometimes referred to in Ireland as "plain porter". A pint of plain is your only man is a well known line from Flann O'Brien's poem "The Workman's Friend"

'When things go wrong
As they sometimes will
'Though you do the best you can....'

I'm getting sentimental....
