Stocking Up For Arthurs Day
27-Sep-2012

Stocking Up For Arthur's Day

A pub close to where I work stocks up for Arthur's Day but I'm not joining the celebration.
It's not just that I don't like the taste of the 'black stuff' but I firmly believe that Arthur's Day is just a cynical marketing ploy to get
people to drink more Guinness.
And drinks giant Diageo which now owns Guinness is planning to close the local Harp brewery, bringing to an end a centuries old brewing tradition in Dundalk.

That is a great shame about Harp being closed down.
I haven't heard of Arthur, will have to look him up.

Great photograph of this. Harp is a very fine beer and deserves to be kept going. Good for you to boycott the event. V.

Very well composed image of the pub getting ready for a busy night. v
I agree with your views on the marketing ploy.

Cool shot of the pub and beer barrels. So sad about the local brewery, I'd not attend either. Excellent blog. V

A fine composition with the contrast silver/black and the framing. V.

Depressing news can often provide the best images. This one is no exception!

That's a shame about Harp being closed! I think all of Dundalk should boycott the celebration!

That's a lot of beer. I also didn't know about the Guiness buyout. Glad you're boycotting the festival. Great image though. V.

I thought it was the recycling- I confess I don't know who Authur is. Well seen

I didn't even realize that Guinness had been bought out! That is real shame. I have to agree with your comments. However, a very good photo here. V
