Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to The Gasket Alley for St. Patrick’s celebration event by GUINNESS. It was a vibrant 2-day festival filled with live performances, fun and games, GUINNESS-infused bites, and of course – cold, creamy GUINNESS stout.
There was plenty for foodies to enjoy with a slew of GUINNESS-infused bites and Irish delicacies, including a spectacular GUINNESS stout roast, Dublin Coddle, sliders and oysters – all paired perfectly with cold, creamy GUINNESS stout.
My personal favourites would be the GUINNESS stout Baileys Ice Cream Floats and GUINNESS stout iced coffee from the cocktail bar, as well as GUINNESS stout popcorn, brownies and a unique GUINNESS stout sorbet.
The atmosphere was abuzz with excitement as guests enjoyed the performances from local artists Church Mouse, Froya, Donamarie, Jumero, Kyoto Protocol, Diplomats of Drum, Ryan Jones and more, as well as stand-up comedy from Prakash Daniel which infused St. Patrick’s fun and laugher to the event.
Some crowd favourite games included the famous GUINNESS Draught Two Part Pour challenge and the Long Bar challenge, which saw festival-goers sliding a bottle of GUINNESS stout along a long table to accumulate points. 2 winners proved to be the best of the best and have each been awarded a trip for 2 to Dublin to be part of the GUINNESS X Meatopia Festival – a weekend-long love affair of meat, drink, fire and music.
There were also plenty of other opportunities for festival goers to win prizes on the spot, including custom GUINNESS tattoos from Electric Dreams, Beard On grooming products and leather key chains by Attached Leather Co. To win, revellers tried their hands at Irish slang and busted a move in the Step Dance Challenge.
“March means just one thing for stout lovers, and that’s the famous St. Patrick’s celebrations. With its Irish origins, GUINNESS stout is the perfect choice to accompany the festivities no matter where you are in the world – be it Dublin, Boston or Kuala Lumpur. Whether you celebrate at one of the parties in bars and pubs up and down the country or at our main festival in KL, GUINNESS has plenty of promotions, fun and games for everyone this St. Patrick’s month. Come along, you’ll never know who you will meet!” said Archana Sridhara, Marketing Manager of GUINNESS Malaysia.
Even though the main festival is over for another year, the month of March is still filled with St. Patrick’s fun as GUINNESS stout lovers can enjoy their favourite brew with amazing promotions all-month long.
Consumers can purchase 2 sets of GUINNESS stout at participating bars and pubs to receive an exclusive GUINNESS pillow that comes in 3 designs while stocks last. To find out where you can take part in the St. Patrick’s festivities happening in March, visit fb.com/GuinnessMalaysia for more details.
