"Hold your pint high. And look all about,
"A legion of Guinness, the world's favourite stout.
"May you find the true wisdom of what matters most,
"A great pint of Guinness, and a Great Guinness Toast."
This is the toast for 2008, please memorize, there will be a test after you have consumed at least 4 pints!
Create an annual record-breaking consumption event where everyone is drinking Guinness beer?"
Toast will occur at 10pm!
That's exactly what those great guys at Guinness have done with The Great Guinness Toast. Sometimes known as "St. Practice Day", made up of Guinness drinkers across the country trying to break the record for the largest simultaneous toast. Since it's inception in 1993 Pittsburgh, The Great Guinness Toast has consistently grown, and breaks its own record each and every year.
The concept of collectively raising a glass and toasting with the famous black and creamy brew is an attempt to gain entrance into one of Arthur Guinness' other select clubs; The Guinness Book of World Records.
Bars, Clubs, Pubs, Restaurants and all types of drinking establishments all around the country put up posters, hand out door prizes and even raise funds for charity, all to be a part of the famous simultaneous toast...and you don't even have to be Irish!
