Learning more about the origins of this famous Irish beer.
This is it. When people think of irish beer, most of their minds immediately jump to Guinness. And I don’t think I need to tell you that this beer has a long, rich history to it. It’s a history I muse over whenever I’m sipping on a bottle of the dark brew with chocolate undertones. So let’s go!
The Guinness history (the beer, not the book)
In 1752, Arthur Guinness came into an inheritance of 100 pounds (British currency) courtesy of his godfather, the Archbishop Price. He used this money to set up an ale brewery in County Kildaire. And in 1759, as his industry floundered, Arthur persisted and signed a 9000 year lease for a St. James Gate property. And in 1769, the first barrels of Guinness touch down in England; their first exported shipment!
In 1799, Arthur makes the choice to cease to brew ales, and instead perfect his black beer. This flies in the face of what seemed like common sense, at a time when porters were very popular in Dublin. In 1803, his son, Arthur II, took the business over. And in 1817, Guinness made it’s first trip across the Atlantic, over to South Carolina. In 1861, the Black Velvet was invented, using CHampagne and Guinness Extra Stout. The drink was created by a bartender to reflect the somber mood cast over the town by the death of Prince Albert.
Apologies, but the Guinness history lesson must end here; it’s much too long for one blog! But look here if you want the full thing!
