Guinness Celebrates 250th Anniversary Tomorrow

It's not every day you get to celebrate a 250th anniversary, especially in the world of beer—though tomorrow, you can do just that. Guinness has dubbed tomorrow, a date marking 250 years to the day since Arthur Guinness signed the legendary 9000 year loan on the St. James Brewery, "Arthur's Day."

Events have been planned across the globe from Dublin to Malaysia, with acts including Kasabian, Estelle, Black Eyed Peas, and Tom Jones. Check Guinness' site for details.

So raise a pint tomorrow in honor of Arthur and the brand he created a quarter of a millennium ago. Cheers!

In the interest of full disclosure, I feel it important to mention that Guinness decided to include me in their "Guinness 250," and that as part of this program, they have sent me a collection of promotional items.
