1. Stomping Ground: The immense warehouse space accommodates brewery and beer hall, has a 30-tap bar and the food menu comes with beer-pairing suggestions.
2. Bodriggy Brewing Co: Nestled in the heart of Abbotsford, the venue boasts a huge bar with 64 taps, pouring wine, cocktails and craft beer.
- Guinness Draught, the most famous beer from Guinness brewery, is not black. The colour is ruby red.
- The perfect pour: According to Guinness, for the perfect pour you must: keep the glass at a 45-degree angle, fill the pint glass three-quarters of the way. Let everything settle for 119.5 seconds and then top it off by pushing the tap backwards. The two-part pour is supposed to create a thick head that domes over the top, but does not spill.
- In every pint of Guinness, there are 300,000 super small bubbles filled with carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
- One 12-ounce serving of Guinness is 125 calories.
- Drinkers with moustaches waste an estimated 162,719 pints—or a pint and a half per 'stache—annually because it gets trapped in their facial hair.
- Guinness is brewed in 49 countries and sold in more than 150.
- In the early 20th century, new mothers in Irish hospitals were reportedly given Guinness after childbirth because the beer’s high iron content was deemed useful for recovery.
- In 2017, Guinness changed its filtration process, doing away with the use of isinglass, a byproduct of fish. Hence, Guinness is now vegan.
