The Guinness brewery is a wonderfully designed structure. The center interior of the building is shaped like a giant pint glass that rises five stories to the top bar, genius! I felt like I was wondering through Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory at first, except with beer 🙂 They actually have a waterfall inside. I almost expected to see little green leprechauns mixing the ingredients at one point; that was of course after a few pints. Luckily for me, most of my students didn’t like dark beer and offered their beer tickets to me. I of course didn’t want to offend any locals and accepted the gracious gifts of free dark, smooth, malty goodness.
Disclaimer: I have been brewing my own beer for many years and I was a tad bit excited to tour these hallowed halls.
