A Look Inside the Guinness Brewery

Guinness Guy Kawasaki has a post about The Art of the Perfect Pint Pour. In it, he posts a number of pictures from a tour he took of the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, Ireland. I was in Dublin with my parents in 1998 and we missed the tour by 5 minutes. It's nice to see what the inside actually looks like.

Speaking of Guinness, do you have any special plans for St. Patrick's Day this year?

It's my sisters birthday (on March 17th), so I'm heading to her place (Chelan, Washington via Oregon) next weekend. My Dad booked train tickets from Salem, Oregon to Seattle. I love trains - especially now that I've re-activated my EVDO card. Its download speed isn't much faster than my BlackBerry Pearl (38.8 KB/sec vs. 25.4 KB/sec), but its upload speed is quite a bit faster (13.5 KB/sec vs. 2.3 KB/sec). Should be a fun trip.

Hey Matt,

I wanted to thank you for asking your viewers about suggestions of things to do and see in London & Dublin. I used alot of the suggestions when my friend & I wanted to go to non-touristy bars in Dublin and things to do in London. It was a spur of the moment trip. When I see you next, I will have to show you the photos from the trip. I made my own Mac photo album book. It's really easy and fun to do.

As far as the Guiness Brewery went, it was a cool place to visit with the best views of Dublin from the gravity bar, though Dublin is not a very built-up city therefore there aren't many skyscrapers and such. The only downfall on the tour is that it costs $$ which is a vast different from the free tours we get at the New Belgium Brewery & Coors Brewery (which are guided for the most part and samples of beer are free). At Guiness you have to pay about 13 Euros and you do get your own pint of Guiness at the end of your tour (at the gravity bar) but it is a self-guided tour which was a little disappointing. Guiness is my favorite beer right now...I love the taste.

Have fun in Seattle for St. Patty's Day with the fam!
