The Search for God and Guinness: A Biography of the Beer that Changed the World

The history of Guinness, one of the world’s most famous brands, reveals the noble heights and generosity of a great family and an innovative business. It began in Ireland in the mid 1700s. The water in Ireland, indeed throughout Europe, was famously undrinkable, and the gin and whiskey that took its place devastated civil society. It was a disease ridden, starvation-plagued, alcoholic age, and Christians like Arthur Guinness—as well as monks and even evangelical churches—brewed beer that provided a healthier alternative to the poisonous waters and liquors of the times.

Wonderful study of the Guinness family, October 24, 2016

To most people Guinness means dark malt consumed on St. Patrick’s Day. This book covers the entire family called “Guinness” and all the marvelous things the various family members have engaged, from brewers to ministers, from a worldwide distribution of the product, to the missionary efforts of some of the members of the clan.

Impressive are the efforts of the Guinness “company” to meet the needs of society and it’s members, including housing, medical care and even cultural opportunities and training for the wives of the workers to be “successful” as women in that society and culture.

Memorable Quote: “You cannot make money from people unless you are willing for people to make money from you.”

An outstanding book that reviews the exceptional ties that the Guinness family had to founding the Guinness Brewery, to the Ministry and other business ventures. Amazing to learn about the amazing support of this family for their employees and their communities. Serves as a model for business today. Exceptional reading to see how a company takes social responsibility and blends it to drive value for their communities and the growth of their company.

Taste and See!, October 12, 2016

In preparation for a trip to the Guinness Storehouse, I highly recommend this book. In all things, taste is improved with origin-stories, and Guinness is no exception.
Furthermore, this book is an excellent treatise on the responsibilities of companies and corporations from the largest to the smallest. If more companies executed their conduct like the Guinnesses, transformation in workplace engagement would occur.
