About the Authors
  • This meticulously researched 1960 text looks at the influential and almost indispensable role that Guinness's brewery played in the Irish economy in the years between 1759–1876. Guinness's conception in 1759, just 18 years after the Great Famine in Ireland, makes it a unique product in terms of both its economic progress and significance. This book begins by introducing the reader to the economic climate and the brewing industries of Ireland from the year 1750 onwards, before moving its focus to Guinness's brewery more specifically. Moreover, Lynch and Vaizey are keen to emphasise the ways in which the often turbulent economic relations between England and Ireland make this story of a Dublin-based business one of both nations. The authors also pay particular attention to the influence the first and second Arthur Guinnesses had on brewing at James's Gate, as well as charting the expansion of the brewery both physically and commercially.
