I have been to Dublin and visited the Guinness factory and I have to tell you it was one of the best tours I've ever had, it was even better than the amazing Budweiser tour in St. Louis. Guinness is such a prideful, and incredible company, with such a great beer, I have no doubt in my mind that this Chicago "hub" will be absolutely stunning, and a total blast when it is all completed!
