Things you didnt know about GuinnessPosted 9th March 12 at 4:26 pm by Amin Khairuddin
The world’s most iconic black brew is renowned around the world for its deep dark colour, creamy head, the flavours of roasted malt as well as the dry hop bitterness. It all started in 1759, when a 34 year old man with little brewing experience leased an abandoned brewery in Dublin named St. James Gate. Arthur Guinness signed a 9000 year lease with an annual rent of £45. 250 years later, Guinness is the No. 1 stout in the world and has become an enduring symbol of Irish pride. Since the brands launch in 1989, Guinness Draught has been sold in over 70 countries with over 800 million cans sold. Much of its success is to the unique aesthetics and rich history of award winning advertising campaigns as well as its robust creamy flavour.
