Guinness and St Patricks day


Oirish bilge

OK, so St Patrick's day was a couple of days ago but I've been a bit busy doing more important things, including brewing my own stout, which I'm sure will taste much better than the international nitro-keg brand.

I couldn't help but notice thought that the usual Oirish bilge promoting Guinness made its appearance for St Patrick's day. Offensive to the eye and brain as such stuff is the fact that Arthur Guinness was a protestant, and as such unlikely to have much time for catholic saints, makes it even more annoying. Still, I suppose historical or religious accuracy are going to count for very little if they get in the way of a marketing opportunity.
