It´s St. Patrick´s Day and even here it´s widely popular and celebrated in bars and pubs all over the country. And the one beer that is associated with it is – of course – Guinness. Eventhough it is not my favourite brew I recpect it as a flagship of Ireland beers – somehow similar to Pilsener Urquell to the Czech ones. So let´s educate ourselves!
“It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and you know what that means — you’re going to get a Guinness. And so is that dude right next to you, even though neither of you is Irish. Drinking Guinness Stout is an Irish tradition that’s as prolific as dressing up in green and imploring people to kiss you, but not many people know the deeper history of this magical elixir. For example, did you know that the original Guinness Brewery belongs to the Guinness family for the next 8,745yrs?”
