Apparently, "Guinness is bad for you"


The following was created by Matthew Hahn - Brewer, Rocky Run Tap & Grill in Columbia, MD. Titled "Guinness is bad for you," Hahn, who's also a visual artist and activist, created this using machinima; movies made with video game engines. It's self-described as "a refutation of Guinness marketing itself as an Irish brew and company," and recently screened in London, England at the Wyllie-O'Hagan St. Patrick's Day Film Festival.

I picked up some of the pub towels with brewer advertising in London a couple of years back. One of them had the typical dry english humour.

....and reading down the list of comments refuting basically, everything that this person is stating in their video regarding the reputation of Mr. Guimess and his family as well as several brewers and wanna be brewers arguing over how a black and tan works....

I watched the video where the "bartender" did nothing but give us a truly odd lecture while juggling the same green bottle. Was it that vile german aperitif? Maybe the author will take Video 1-B next semester and get on to more complicated movements and matching appropriate voices to characters.
But more to the point. What was the purpose of it to announce to the world that Guinness is not a Small Town Irish Brewer? It's not exactly new news that many large businesses including Guinness are indeed owned by one or more companies not located on home soil. Guinness being not locally owned is about as surprising as learning Hondas don't all come from Japan, Omega is owned by Swatch or Volvo is owned by Ford. So what.
I can only guess whether the author had another motivation for making this video. Maybe as a small brewer he doesn't like the competition. Given the focus of that video on early catholic persecution and workers rights in general is there some tie to an Irish political group? I don't know. But it was strange indeed.

It's been some time since I had a beer at Rocky Run. The reason I haven't been back in some time is because the house beers were terrible. Tasted terrible, not made to style and poorly crafted. If the beer still tastes the same, well, perhaps this guy created this video because he's jealous someone can brew a well crafted beer? Pretty shoddy of a brewer to bad mouth someone else's creations. The brewers I know appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into producing a well made beverage, especially in such large quantities.
