Irish brand of beer

Guinness (/ˈɡɪnəs/) is an Irish beer first made in the brewery of Arthur Guinness in Dublin, Ireland, in 1759. It is one of the most successful alcohol brands in the world. It is brewed in almost 50 countries, and available in over 120.[1][2] Sales in 2011 amounted to 850,000,000 liters (190,000,000 imp gal; 220,000,000 U.S. gal).[1] Although it sells less than in 2001,[3] it is the best-selling alcoholic drink in Ireland[4] where the Guinness Brewery makes almost €2 billion worth of beer annually.
