Resumen

Guinness isn't just good for you#it's been good for the whole world for the past 250 years Here's what you know about Guiness It's one of the most successful brands of beer in the world and has been for the last two and a half centuries. Celebrated through some of the most creative and effective advertising campaigns in history. Guiness is brewed at one of the largest breweries on earth and consumed at a rate or more than 10 million pints every day. Here's what you don't know Beyond the company's financial success, Guinness has also been a remarkable and inspiring force for social good, whose impact was felt from the company's earliest days down to the present. In this fascinating book, New York Times best-selling author Stephen Mansfield stirs together several strains of the Guiness legacy#beer, family, philantrophy, and vibrant and active faith concerned with lifting the helpless and downtrodden. Mansfield tells the story of brewery founder Arthur Guinness and traces the family tree to his heirs who built housing for the poor, restored some of the great institutions of faith in Ireland, and who even ensured that soldiers had pints of brew on the battlefields of the world's great wars. "I knew I had found it: that earthy, human, holy tale of a people honing a craft over time and of a family seeking to do good in the world as an offering to God," says Mansfield. It was "a story thick line the smell of barley at the St. James Gate brewery and as filled with the biter and the sweet as any generational tale is likely to be." In an age of corporation irresponsibility and corruption, the Guinness story is a challenge to our times and an inspiration to our hearts.
