I spent my morning getting drug tested and buying brewing supplies, so I am just now getting to posting. Luckily my boss lets me do stuff like this 🙂
Anyway, Guinness is had a worldwide toast today to their 250th year brewing (although according to an Irish blogger the true date of the lease signing is 9 weeks away). The thing is though everyone is posting about this. So what’s the point in me giving the history? Why should you read my thoughts when Jeff has a great post about how Guinness was brewing back when Americans were trading slaves and before we were mean to the poor helpless Indians. Or why try to hold your attention when Sara is giving away her Guinness 250 care package she received to the 25th commenter?
Anyway as you can see it’s pointless to talk about Guinness when everyone else is. The only unique thing I could bring to the table is posting about how mediocre it is, but even that niche has been filled. Instead here are some links to Guinness 250 articles.

Jeff works in a few guilty America comments here
Reuters has an article that sounds like you could substitute Guinness for Bud and black stuff for pale stuff and it would then be about Bud
Anti ArthurPost from Beernut, a blogger from Dublin I believe.
Another anti Guiness bit this time from a letter sent to The Irish Times
Or you could always head to Guinness to get the official press
