    Multinational beer and spirits company Diageo, which owns Guinness and Harp, among many other famous brands, is planning on opening a brand new Guinness brewery in Baltimore County, Maryland in the fall. It will be the first Guinness brewery in the US in 60 years. Diageo is planning on investing $50 million (€46 million) in this project and will begin construction this spring at a former bottling plant in Relay, MD, which closed in 2015. The project is expected to create 70 new jobs in brewing, warehousing and packaging, as well as in the visitor experience side of the operation.
  • Non-alcoholic Guinness now sold in Indonesia

    Irish Central ^ | January 27, 2016 01:01 AM | James O’Shea
    Guinness is attempting to become more popular in Indonesia, where alcohol is mostly frowned up by the predominantly Muslim population. The company has developed non-alcoholic Guinness in a bid to win over those who shun alcoholic beverages. [...] The new non-alcoholic beer is called Guinness Zero and is said to be selling very well. There are no plans, however, to sell it anywhere else. The Guinness move comes after after the Indonesian government banned the sale of beer in convenience stores from April 2015 and other small stores. Guinness will continue to sell its regular brew in large supermarkets and...
  • Guinness can’t afford to alienate loyalists as beer sales fall [changing recipe]

    Guinness dates back 256 years and is laden with deep cultural connotations for both the Irish and Irish diaspora here in the United States. Any significant change to it is risky.Even if it means removing an element deemed repugnant by a large segment of the population.We could be talking about isinglass — the clear collagen extracted from fish bladders that is used to draw spent yeast out of beer and clarify the finished product — but Guinness is planning to remove that particular substance from its brewing process in 2016 in favor of another less-fishy filtration method. There wasn’t all...

    Beer Guinness changes recipe to go vegan Guinness is going vegan. Starting in 2016, the Irish beer will be fully vegan friendly for the first time since they started brewing beer 256 years ago, reports The Independent. Guinness, like many other brewers, use isinglass, a by-product of the fishing industry that's used to clarify the beer and make yeast settle faster. While most of the agent is filtered out during the brewing process, there are still traces of fish bladders in the finished product. Vegan customers have long been petitioning the brand to discontinue its use of isinglass. One was...

    KARST, Germany, - A German gardener broke his own Guinness World Record by growing a sunflower plant measuring 30 feet and 1 inch high. Hans-Peter Schiffer of Karst first held the record for tallest sunflower plant in 2009 with a 26-foot, 4-inch sunflower and he broke his own record in 2012 with a 27-foot plant. Schiffer again broke his record in 2013 with a plant measuring 28 feet and 8 inches tall. "Some sunflowers are already so unbelievable tall, that it could be very possible to get even a taller one," Schiffer told Guinness World Records. "I am already very...

    Bill Donohue sent the following letter today to three top officials at Diageo-Guinness in Norwalk, Connecticut, and three others in London:“The decision to withdraw sponsorship of New York’s St. Patrick’s Day parade is not being welcomed by Catholics, especially Irish Catholics; we are also impressed by the number of non-Catholics who have expressed their support for our boycott. No gays have ever been barred from marching, and there were no new rules applied this year that made the 2014 parade any different from previous ones; claims of discrimination are therefore bogus.

    These days there aren't too many big pro-family victories to celebrate. But Sunday's St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Boston was one of them! It went wonderfully. The organizers stood up to the politicians and the rabid media who tried relentlessly to force them to include overt homosexual activist groups in their traditional Catholic, pro-family parade. And in the end many others stood with them. Labor unions, small businesses, several politicians, and an almost endless procession of military, religious, school, and other groups proudly marched before huge, cheering crowds.

    If you’ve never been to the annual New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, better put it on your calendar for next year. That is, if there is a next year. Time could be running out on the world’s biggest celebration of all things Irish. Why? Because the parade’s organizers have for two decades steadfastly refused to allow gay and lesbian organizations to march under banners trumpeting their sexual orientation. The city’s self-appointed guardians of human rights long ago declared this policy exclusionary and intolerant. But, unlike in previous decades, the effort to paint the parade and its organizers...

    Guinness pulls out of St. Patty’s parade over LGBT ban Guinness beer has pulled its sponsorship from New York’s famed St. Patrick’s day parade over a controversial policy that prohibits gays and lesbians from marching openly, according to reports. “Guinness has a strong history of supporting diversity and being an advocate for equality for all,” the company said in a statement on the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation website. “We were hopeful that the policy of exclusion would be reversed for this year’s parade. As this has not come to pass, Guinness has withdrawn its participation. We will continue...

    Ireland’s love affair with pub and pint is sparking national soul-searching as never before because of an unofficial holiday dreamed up by Guinness. Thursday’s celebrations of Arthur’s Day, honoring the 18th-century founder of Ireland’s quintessential drink, feature surprise musical performances in 815 pubs and clubs across Ireland as well as concerts worldwide from Malaysia to Jamaica. … Many pubs are offering free pints of the dark brown stout at 5:59 p.m.—a reference to the founding of Guinness in 1759 … But this year, Guinness has been put on the defensive amid surging protests that Arthur’s Day is compounding an alcoholic...

People from all ages wearing bikinis and swimsuits skied downhill a 700-metre (765-yard) slope in the Sheregesh Ski Resort, in Novokuznetsk, Russia. To set a new record, 251 bikini-clad riders were needed. Participants from the Novosibirsk, Tomsk and Krasnoyarsk districts helped set the new world record for bikini skiing. Despite of the bad weather forecast, the temperature hit 20 C (68 F) and the sun was shining. Later in the evening, a ski beauty contest was held, where judges evaluated the sport skills of the...

    Anyone notice Guinness tastes different? It seems to me when they stopped using the "widget" in their bottles, the flavor changed. It now has a slightly sour aftertaste. A year ago or so I was asked to leave an irish pub when I got into a huge argument with the bartender. I told them their Guinness keg was crap after taking one sip of a draw and I told them I wanted my money back. They gave me my money and I was escorted out. But now I tasted guinness(bottles) last friday for the first time in a year and...

    (St. Patrick’s Day – March 17th)There’s something very symbolic about Corned Beef & Cabbage. It’s closely associated with Irish tradition but, more specifically, to poor Irish immigrants who couldn’t afford better cuts of meat. This meal is celebratory, simple and sparse—the perfect Lenten meal. Its a delicious respite to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Generally speaking, dioceses with large Irish populations will often waive the Lenten Friday meat abstinence rules if St. Patrick’s day falls on a Friday so be sure to take advantage of this great recipe.There are several problems with cooking Corned Beef. First, it’s a cheap cut of...
