GUINNESS® St. Patrick’s Celebrations

The celebration of all things green is back for the 7th year and this year’s GUINNESS St Patrick’s celebrations promises to be ‘March more Fun’! Today marked the month-long celebration filled with fun, laughter and friends with the official launch of GUINNESS® St Patrick’s celebration at Havana, Changkat Bukit Bintang.

The Guest of Honour of the night was Mr. Shane Stephen, Deputy Head of Mission of the Irish Embassy, giving tribute to the Irish origins of St Patrick’s Day. Apart from him, 150 other guests from the media, trade partners and fans of GUINNESS also joined in the festivities.

At the event, Mr. Thum Chee Yuen, Sales Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) shared the highlights to this year’s celebration, “GUINNESS has always been synonymous with the St Patrick’s Day. Here in Malaysia, it is no different. In fact, GUINNESS Malaysia was the host of the biggest St Patrick’s Party in Asia last year. This year, we are taking the festivities up a notch by adding a new spin to the celebration.”

“GUINNESS fans in Malaysia can look forward to being part of the country’s biggest GUINNESS St Patrick’s Pub Crawl! This unique experience will have fans and friends of the black brew on a trip of a lifetime,” Thum added.
Thum was quick to point out that only 200 odd lucky fans and friends of GUINNESS will get a chance to be part of the largest GUINNESS pub crawl in Malaysia. These selected participants will receive a special St Patrick’s kit consisting of 2 free pints of GUINNESS® and an exclusive GUINNESS® St. Patrick’s Pub crawl T-Shirt. They will also qualify to be part of the St. Paddy’s Hunt. During the journey, it will so March fun as the St Patty’s crawlers will be entertained by some of Malaysia’s most renowned comedians adding good humour to the trip.

To help GUINNESS fans and friends Drink Sensibly during the St Patrick’s biggest pub crawl, “Drink Sensibly Angels” will be at hand to provide water bottles and food during the journey, and to share tips on how to party safely.
