I'd say Guinness didn't even figure to us down here until the 60's [/quote:45qa41ok]

Guinness weren't really interested in bottle or direct sale till recent in there history, could have easily been manly local bottler putting their lable/name on the bottle with Guinness inside

Brewing records do look interesting <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

1. Brewing Records
387 12 July 1828 – 4 June 1829
Mss copybook brewer‟s book with numerical figures and calculations. Includes comments on the brewing process, the weather, place names “Lisbon”, and [b:1qm38b6x][poetry][/b:1qm38b6x].[/quote:1qm38b6x]

The Brewerey I think refers to Murphy's in the Bold statements , I think those records are for tied houses . You'd have to take a look at the actual documents to figure that out .

Your right about the Arnotts and St Finbarrs though , At the bottom of Shandon street the yellow brick ensignia of Arnotts stout can still be seen above the first floor of the old EBS building society building , It's very close to the Franciscan well actually.

It would be very interesting to see if other big Irish porter/stout brewers made the switch form brown to amber malt like Guinness did?
