guinness marmite?

Any idea where I could find this on the west side? I'm new to this city and I've not got a clue where to start looking.

      I know that. There is a guinness marmite for St. Paddys day this year.

          Actually, yum!
          I cannot see how it could taste much like Guinness, though, since it seems that all they are doing is substituting the Guinness yeast for the yeast they usually use. There wouldnt be much of the malt or hops flavors of the beer left by the time it becomes Marmite.

      1. Mmmmmm...beer....mmmmm...marmite....mmmmm...marmite and butter on toast washed down with Guiness...

        1. So, where would I be most likely to find it in LA? On the west side, pref.

          1. Have you tried the shop at the King's Head in Santa Monica?

            1. Finding it in the US doesn't look promising:
