“General Guinness”


General Guinness "is a soldier strong and 'stout,' Found on every 'bottle-front'" "He always finds a corkscrew far more handy than a sword." He "kept our spirits up in the midst of all the wars." "All over Bonnie Scotland too the General is seen"


Morton-Ulster: "General Guiness has been winning battles for a brave few years now. Arthur Guiness bought the small and ill-equipped brewery at James' Gate, Dublin in 1759." - BS
