Arthur Guinness was an Irish brewer and the founder of the Guinness® brewery family business. He was an entrepreneur, visionary and philanthropist who laid the foundation for the Guinness® brewery. At 27, in 1752, Arthur's godfather Arthur Price, the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Cashel, bequeathed him £100 in his will. Guinness invested the money and in 1755 founded a brewery at Leixlip, close to Dublin. In 1759, Arthur made a bold move to the city and set up his own business making history when he invested his entire inheritance in a 9,000 year lease on the 4 acre brewery at St James’s Gate in Ireland. Thanks to Arthur, persons have been enjoying Guinness® beer for 252 years, and more to come.
On September 22 the toasting to Arthur Guinness and his legacy will kick off at 17:59 GMT. In the Caribbean many islands will be celebrating Arthur’s Day™ in local bars featuring live performances by local talent, prizes and drink specials. Across the region, Arthur Guinness Day Live TV simulcast will present the best emerging talent in soca, dancehall and reggae in concert, giving thousands of Guinness consumers as well as Guinness Caribbean Facebook fans access to the global celebration.
