GUINNESS IS 250! (1759-2009)

He looks like a composer like Mozart or Beethoven.

I am sure you have seen the latest Guinness advertisement 'TO AUTHUR!' Well, Authur Guinness (1725-1803) is the Irish man who gives you the dark Guinness Stout. A portion of the barley is flaked (i.e. steamed and rolled) and roasted to give Guinness its dark colour and characteristic taste. This drink is even older than Coca-Cola, which was introduced in 1886.

I personally love the stout more than any beer. Simple reason is because of the better aroma and richer taste. It is less bitter too. OK, I am not a regular drinker so this is just an opinion of a very rare drinker.

Authur's Day will be celebrated on 24 September 2009 to commemorate these remarkable 250 years. There will be many events for the celebration. There will also be a contest which is giving you three remarkable experiences of space, sea and studio. Try your luck, you never know if you never try. I know, this is harder than winning the jackpot lottery but a chance is still a chance! I wonder whether drinking the stout under the sea or even perhaps in space will make you drunk easier or harder.

And finally,
