Today, September 24th, 2009, marks the day 250 years ago that Arthur Guinness started the great brewing tradition that is Guinness. The folks at St. James Gate are planning a worldwide party to celebrate with such acts as the Black Eyed Peas, Tom Jones, and Sean Paul. The party starts at the St. James Gate Brewery and continues with live music throughout Dublin and in other cities such as Lagos and Kuala Lumpur.
The party continues west to the USA with over 5000 pubs celebrating and hoisting a toast at 17:59 (5:59 p.m.) local time to honor Arthur’s achievement.
The events of the day will be telecast on Direct TV channel 101 with feeds from Dublin and pubs around the US.
So tomorrow at 5:59 p.m., grab a Guinness at you local pub and relish in the gift that Arthur Guinness has given us.
