Cheers To Two Hundred Years: The Story of Guinness In America

CHARLESTON, S.C - The story begins on October 16th, 1817 with a single line in a brewer's log. The handwritten note reveals the first eight barrels of Guinness beer – a porter to be exact – meant for America would make their arrival in South Carolina. Ever since then, the bond between America and Ireland has continued to grow, from Irish immigrants searching for a better life to community leaders to, of course, Guinness and the countless pints – shared responsibly – with the people of the United States.

The anniversary this fall is a celebration of a 200-year love affair between a brewery and a people: Guinness and America. There's no better time than now for the Guinness brand to say thank you to America by introducing the limited-edition Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout; bringing back a few favorite stout releases for a festive variety pack; and hosting a pair of public events in New York City and Los Angeles.

Cannabis Investors Take Over Wine Country's Top Talent, Infrastructure, And Customer Base

NAPA  -  The Cannabis industry's footprint is extending significantly into wine country this week with the launch of Big Moon Sky, California's first online-only dispensary providing curated cannabis products shipped direct to your home. Leveraging over two decades of experience in the wine industry, Big Moon Sky's founders created a safe and secure marketplace for Californians to purchase highly curated collections of artisanal cannabis products.

Until now, the wine industry has focused heavily on how cannabis will compete over field labor at the production end and over wallet share at the consumer end. The Big Moon Sky launch demonstrates that the cannabis industry is also going to poach top talent from wineries who share many of the same obstacles as cannabis producers.
