"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, Guinness is brewed at one of the largest breweries on earth and consumed at a rate of more than 10 million pints every day. 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 Guinness legacy - beer, family, philanthropy, 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."--Book jacket.
