In true Irish fashion, Fado is starting up the St. Patty’s day celebration a wee bit early with the Great Guinness Toast and Pour, a chance for one lucky wordsmith to find gold by winning a pint a day for a year (My Goodness, My Guinness!) on Friday, February 17 at 7 p.m.

Submit your original toast to Guinness by noon on Wednesday, February 15 to or in person at the pub for entry into the contest where four finalists will be chosen to share their words at the pour on Friday.

Here are a few facts about Guinness to help you prepare and unleash the Brian Flanagan within you.

• Guinness is actually ruby red in color and not black
• A pint contains 120 calories
• Guinness is always served between 39-42 degrees
• Guinness is brewed in more than 150 countries
• Fado’s kegs come straight from St. James’ Gate in Dublin

Besides hearing some entertaining tributes to the popular Irish dry stout, Guinness lovers can step up to the taps and have a shot at pouring the perfect pint which takes 1 minute and 19 seconds to complete.

May the best bard win!
