This 250-year old story will fascinate lovers of Guinness beer and memorabilia as well as those interested in this remarkable family of brewers and the industrial history of Ireland’s most famous export.
Over 100 fascinating photographs bring to life the pivotal role that the Guinness brewery has played in Ireland for over two centuries: the early days of the brewery; the Guinness dynasty; the brewing process; the unique industrial complex at St James’s Gate; day-to-day life behind the gates; the hugely successful export operation; and key moments in the history of the brewery.
By the twentieth century St James’s Gate was the largest brewery in the world, and Guinness had become forever synonymous with Ireland.
SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR - undedicated, this is the hardcover edition, first published 2009.

I received the best service when trying to locate this book. I emailed many places, and the guys here were able to source the hardback of the book for me with plenty of time for Christmas, as well as having it signed. I honestly cannot believe how fantastic and well organised the guys here were, really made a hard time a lot easier. Will be back again as I’m trying to buy Irish going forward. :)
