The Guinness 250


Rob mentioned that this summer, as usual, has been jam packed with cookouts, camp outs, trips to the lake, trips to the beach, weddings, pool time and every other imaginable summer activity including LOTS of beer drinking. Just not so much beer making; It happens OK. Looking back at some earlier post we realized a lot of stuff beer related HAS happened this summer but what we want to tell you about now is  “THE GUINNESS 250”. Steve told you guys about our incredible meeting with Fergal Murry the Brewmaster for Guinness, if you don’t remember you can read it here. What we haven’t told you yet is that a few weeks after our meeting we all received an email from Rich Gallagher of Taylor, Guinness’ PR firm, stating that Guinness was creating a group of only 250 of the biggest Guinness fans in the country and that this group was made of up celebrities, media personality and the three of us. Because after all we had met with Fergal so we must be some of Guinness’ biggest fans.  We were pumped! We thought this was the coolest thing ever and couldn’t wait to be involved in all of the specials and activities they promised us. A few days later, after confirming our desire to be part of this select group, our welcome packages arrived. They were decent sized FedEx boxes filled with goodies like bottle openers, rugby shirts, coasters and a nice little certificate with our name printed right on it… That was April, this is the end of August. Have we heard a peep from them since? I think not.  We are still waiting around to find out what if anything “THE GUINNESS 250” was all about. We’ll keep you posted.
