The context; Top 10 beer drinking countries – Ireland is ranked 4th in the world. It continues;
So the stereotype of Paddy’s enjoying their Guinness does have some grounding then. With a per capita consumption of 104 litres, Ireland is firmly in 4th place in the list of top beer drinking countries in the world. Guinness sales top 1.5billion pints worldwide and we wonder how many are consumed by the natives themselves
We should thank Guinness for this then? No way. We grew up in a country where Guinness is good for you. Your national pride was measured by how many pints you could drink. A mindset arrogantly nurtured by Guinness over generations.
You would think the natives would cop on by now? Not if Guinness have their way. Guinness alcohol is inseparably linked with sport, music, and anything close to the heart of the young Irish man. They continue to pour money into sponsorship
There is a change. Growing concern for one’s health. Alcohol is a serious threat
