It’s estimated 13 million pints of Guinness will be poured on St. Patrick’s Day (Saturday 17 March). And each one – according to the Guinness Academy – should take precisely 119.5 seconds to pour. Which means the world’s bar staff would spend a collective ONE BILLION, FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-THREE MILLION, AND FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND seconds (or 49.2 years) pouring Guinness pints this Paddy’s day.
The bizarre calculation has been revealed by BB Foodservice – who are running a special offer price of £9.99 on cases of bottled Guinness* ahead of St. Patrick’s Day. Available to order for collection or delivery via phone at 01738 646666 or online at www.bbfoodservice.co.uk
Tony Holmes, sales director, BB Foodservice (Bestway Wholesale) said: “With Paddy’s Day falling on a Saturday this year, the opportunity for pubs and bars is enormous. To help them capitalize, we’ve got a fantastic deal on bottled Guinness – best served straight from the bottle, not poured. Which means bar staff will have to find something else to do with that 119.5 seconds!”
