Publisher's Summary

The history of Guinness, one of the world's most famous brands, reveals the noble heights and generosity of a great family and an innovative business. It began in Ireland in the mid-1700s. The water in Ireland, indeed throughout Europe, was famously undrinkable, and the gin and whiskey that took its place devastated civil society. It was a disease-ridden, starvation-plagued, alcoholic age, and Christians like Arthur Guinness - as well as monks and even evangelical churches - brewed beer that provided a healthier alternative to the poisonous waters and liquors of the times. This is where the Guinness tale began. Now, 250 years and over 150 countries later, Guinness is a global brand, one of the most consumed beverages in the world. The tale that unfolds during those two and a half centuries has power to thrill audiences today: the generational drama, business adventure, industrial and social reforms, deep-felt faith, and the noble beer itself.

God Bless Guinness

I have been in many Bible college classes, and never once was the name Aurthur Guinness ever mentioned what this man has done along with his family and business to help spread the Gospel around the world. Thank you for opening my mind to see that God still does work in amazing ways.

Christian conservative sermon

Barely a book about Guinness. If you leave out the parts about some not-beer-related preacher Guinness, it's about as deep study of Guinness as you get from a tour in the Storehouse in Dublin. And you get a pint there.
