Ah, just 9000...still plenty of time
Who is he leasing it from?
And the lease is still there, on display under the floor at St James, Dublin
The lease is on view, as others have said, but it is no longer valid. Guinness bought the land the brewery is on a long time ago now. They own a very large section of that area of Dublin. Where people do the tour is just one small part of it. Guinness have been very good to their employees and to the city. They built many facilities around the city for different things. Dublin's largest square, St. Stephen's Green, was laid out by them. They are also connected with a nearby park, the Iveagh Gardens, amongst many other things. In terms of their employees, they have many facilities for their health and welfare. Generations of families worked there. Their relations were also entitled to access to the medical facilities. For example, the widow of an employee would be granted medical support for the rest of her life, even if she never worked there herself. With modern technology, there are far less people working there than there used to be, but they are still regarded as a good employer.
That’s a man with confidence. Who else thinks there brewery would outlast every country that has ever existed on the planet.
The Guinness tour in Dublin totally worth it. Surprisingly interesting and a really neat building.
Still got a lot of times till they have to relocate to some other planets in the future then, not to mention all the breweries in the world that is managed/shareowned by them too.
Look at this grinning motherfucker
