Yesterday was the 250th Anniversary of Guinness Stout!
Partygoers in Dublin, New York, City, Kuala Lumpur, Cameroon Yaoundé, Cameroon and Nigeria Lagos, Nigeria all raised a glass to Arthur Guinness on Arthur’s Day… something that should be an annual thing, in my opinion. We need a boozy holiday this time of year!
Guinness was my “first” beer, because it was new and obscure in the US in the mid 80s, and if you walked into a liquor store and asked for it, it was rare that the guy working the counter would ID you. I guess they figured teenagers only came in and tried to buy cases of Nasty Lite. Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GUINNESS! TO ARTHUR!
