  1. Dare I say that you might be going to a pub later on today? :)

    Cute ads! I don't like to drink Guiness, but it's great to pour over meat when I'm doing it on the smoker.

  2. I just might, Susan. I have the rest of the day off. (and I'd rather not go on St Paddy's with all the other tankards.)

  3. Those are great ads. And I don't even actually like Guiness - too much like drinking bread.

  4. Did you get some Guinness for your birthday by any chance? (I also think I forgot to wish you a happy one the other day, so belated wishes that your birthday was great!)

  5. For such a serious subject, Kylie, these are fun!

    Thank you, Pinklea. I didn't, but I might make up for now!

  6. Citizen, it is almost as much food as drink!

  8. Ken, these would add some 'flavour' to your bar, for sure.

    I was familiar with some of the Guinness is Good for You ads but not these ones, and am quite taken with them.

  9. Oh man, a tall Guinness sounds soooooo good right about now...:-)

  10. Hope you can find one, Ed. Perhaps tomorrow, at the latest?

  11. I didn't like Guinness until I went to Ireland and had it on draft. And I love the little symbols they manage to put in the foam, like the harp. These are cool ads, so diverse.

    Happy St Paddy's Day!

  12. Never had much of a taste for the stuff. Once in a while, though...

  13. Slainte! Happy St. Paddy's Day!

    I don't drink the stuff. I prefer an ale me... :) Actually had two on Sunday after our race. Yummy!

    But I love these ads.

    UA, the ads are great, aren't they?

    It's not my favourite, either, XUP, but sometimes it does go down a treat.

    I have heard, Ruth, that there was quite a difference between the Guinness from London and the Guinness from Dublin (which is moot now as London has closed).

  15. I've heard it said that if the Guinness brewery every failed, the entire economy of Ireland would collapse. ;-)

    I usually like drinking black and tan's myself, though a straight Guinness is enjoyable as well.

  16. In the summer, I prefer a lager, myself, Mr Nighttime - it's lighter and more refreshing. Stout (and ale) can be rather heavy and filling)

  17. Guinness always makes great adverts. I love the beer too. And Saint-Patrick's Day, of course!

  18. You would get the opportunity to see these ads more than here in Canada, Guillaume. These were all new to me, but I instantly took to them.
