Drinks were as popular 50 years ago as they are today


Hey it's Saturday. Have a Guinness and relax. That's what people did back in 1958.
Or if that's not hard enough for you, mix yourself a gimlet. Thanks for the tip, Daily News!

I read in some book ages ago that Guinness supposedly did most of their brewing during WWII in LIC, apparently concerned about the legendary St. James Gate brewery in Dublin and their ability to produce the elixir. As I recall, the works were located near where DeVry and LaGuardia Community College are now, off of Thompson Avenue.

Any Guinness and/or LIC historians who can confirm my shaky memory?
