Fire at Guinness Plant Threatens Supply

Just a few months back, we were writing about Guinness turning 250 years old, and having a lease at their brewery at St. John’s Gate that lasts until approximately 10,759 AD.

Today, there are fears for the world’s Guinness supply, after a fire broke out at the brewery–although no word on whether it was the historical part of the brewery, or a newer building that was impacted.

There were no injuries in the blaze, which required “over nine fire brigades and three rigs with aerial ladder platforms” to be contained before spreading to an ammonia plant on site.

It is believe the fire started when felt on a roof was being repaired–we’re assuming maybe that’s a European thing, as I’m not sure why you would want felt on a roof.
