Guinness Beer History

A little back story about Guinness beer for you. Guinness beer is known as the king of Irish beers. Centuries after it first launched in Dublin, it has become a staple of the bar scene in more than 150 countries worldwide! In every pint of Guinness, there are 300,000 super small bubbles filled with carbon dioxide and nitrogen. What makes Guinness even better to drink and cook with? It’s actually a very low calorie beer! So no guilt when you want to enjoy a pint of Guinness. Guinness was also one of the very first beers to be trademarked! This beer not only tastes good but it also has a super rich history!
