This October marks the 200th anniversary of when the first eight barrels of Guinness made its journey across the Atlantic, from Ireland to America. And Guinness wants to take the time to thank America for the years and years of love and beer drinking, by introducing the limited-edition Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout and bringing back a few favorite stout releases for a festive variety pack.
A lot of good comes from “living local.” Supporting local restaurants. Frequenting local bars. Buying local products. Cooking with local food. Drinking local booze. It’s what keeps the small communities of America running.
If you want to get to know someone, you have to ask questions. That’s why we, here at DIA, love to get into our readers minds via monthly polls. Not a in a creepy way, more in like “we don’t know you but we know that if we did we would be best friends,” kind of way. We genuinely want to get to know you all better!

We’re living during a time where the phrase, “Do it yourself,” is quite literally becoming a live-by motto. And this isn’t a bad thing! More and more, people are embracing making their dreams a reality based solely on their own merit. They’re original, tenacious, go-getters, hard working, and unapologetically confident individuals. It’s time we celebrate those who go the extra mile all year round (even if you might not be one of them).
We’re usually silly here on Drinking in America, but today we’re going to talk about something a little more serious. Corporate Social Responsibility. Most commonly known as a combination of corporate social initiatives including philanthropy, community volunteering, socially responsible business practices, etc., it’s crucial for a company to practice it. It pleases company stakeholders, influencers, their audience and just as importantly employees. But it usually ends up being a hit or a miss. Sometimes a HUGE miss i.e. the Volkswagen emissions scandal of 2015. Can you say, yikes?
