Well...they are Irish.

Except that it very much is. St. James' Gate in Dublin is still the largest brewer of Stout in the world.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_James%27s_Gate

Guinness very briefly mentioned that they might consider moving some operations from James' Gate in order to sell the highly valuable land, and the media blew it out of all proportion. They are no longer planning, and never seriously were, to end brewing in Dublin. In fact, the zoning laws now prohibit them from ever using the land at James' Gate for anything else, so they're kinda stuck there now.

Those looked like some serious firefighters, where I live, I've only seen them once.

They seemed to be using garden hoses.

You send out the best when there is Guinness at stake.

This guy is the standard Irish firefighting service for non-beer related fires

Makes sense.

The guys I saw were the ones trying to put out a gigantic fire in the biggest department store of the region.

They failed btw.

That's what happens when you guys have so much oil that you start using it in your fire hoses.

I think the Irish Daily Mirror said something like: "Hero Firefighters Save Guiness... & Dublin"

The fire could have poterntially destroyed half of Dublin's docklands, but I'm not entirely sure how "Dublin" was saved... perhaps all the Dubliners would have died of thirst without Guiness

Actually, we just give it away to Cuba, Nicaragua and Londres.

Because we obviously don't need the money to fix the hospitals, roads, give maintenance to our hydroelectric plants and improve the electricy distribution system.


Or pay my grandma's pension for serving more than 30 years in public schools and the Ministry of Education.


But I don't want to talk abput that today, it's almost Christmas.

Or massive riots with people sacking supermarkets and liquor stores that have the few Guinness products left.

But... but, when I went there the tour guide said they moved to London and that the plant was only there as a tourist attraction.

Stupid, uneducated tour guide bitchface

I've been to Ireland and even kissed the Blarney Stone...

So I can say with a profound amount of validity that every single Irish person is a red-headed, drunk midget with an accent comparable to a strangled kitten.

However, you did give us Guinness and the Coors...

Just playing, mate

i hope you know the locals piss on the blarney stone at night.irish people generally avoid kissing that

He drank until it felt better.
