Clubflat In Dublin 2006 Home Page

 

 

Stop 14 on the open top bus - The Guinness Factory! This brought back memories of the trip to Martson's Brewery back in 2002 and boy did we Clubflat that place. Well the Guinness Factory is infinitely bigger than Marston's, a whopping 64 acres and because of this, you actually tour round a specially built tourist section which is 6 or 7 levels high. Being such a large place we were going to need an extra effort with the Clubflat cards. Hero soon got things underway at the ticket desk and it didn't take long for Eggergizer, Steroid and Biff-Edge to follow with some classic plantings in the hops, water and machinery. Planting of the day was a superb effort by Hero to float a card down from high up on the 6th floor onto the top of a metal support girder with the card landing face-up, YEAH! About half of the Clubflat cards for the whole Dublin trip got deposited at the Guinness factory, they will be finding them for years to come! Last stop of the tour was the Gravity Bar which is a bar surrounded entirely by glass on the very top level looking out on the mammoth Guinness factory. This is the best bit of the tour, mainly cos you get your free pint of Guinness here, but also because the atmosphere up here is just electric. The Irish sure know how to finish a tour off. Several pints of Guinness later, everyone's leathered and singing along to some Irish folk songs or singing Happy Birthday to someone or other. It must be the combination of the height you're at when you're drinking the Guinness cos it sure does the business! The bar staff were great, especially Madam Red (as we'll call her), who regularly took the mic and got the place going. The Guinness Factory, a great place, with great staff and with great, err, Guinness. And here's a tip, if you want more free Guinness while you're up there, just say it's your Birthday! The Irish, any excuse for a drink!
