Guinness To Host Malaysia's Biggest St Patrick's Pub Crawl

This year’s Guinness St Patrick’s celebrations is back for the 7th year running, this round promising to be ‘March more Fun’. I may not be able to join in this year since I will have to take care of baby Martin. Nevertheless, this is the month-long celebration filled with fun, laughter and friends with the official launch of Guinness St Patrick’s celebration at Havana, Changkat Bukit Bintang.

At the media launch last week, the Guest of Honour of the night was Mr. Shane Stephen, Deputy Head of Mission of the Irish Embassy, giving tribute to the Irish origins of St Patrick’s Day. Apart from him, 150 other guests from the media, trade partners and fans of Guinness also joined in the festivities.

At the event, Mr. Thum Chee Yuen, Sales Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) shared the highlights to this year’s celebration, “GUINNESS has always been synonymous with the St Patrick’s Day. Here in Malaysia, it is no different. In fact, GUINNESS Malaysia was the host of the biggest St Patrick’s Party in Asia last year. This year, we are taking the festivities up a notch by adding a new spin to the celebration.”

Happy faces at the launch.

Thum was quick to point out that only 200 odd lucky fans and friends of Guinness will get a chance to be part of the largest Guinness pub crawl in Malaysia. These selected participants will receive a special St Patrick’s kit consisting of 2 free pints of Guinness and an exclusive Guinness St. Patrick’s Pub crawl T-Shirt. They will also qualify to be part of the St. Paddy’s Hunt. During the journey, it will so March fun as the St Patty’s crawlers will be entertained by some of Malaysia’s most renowned comedians adding good humour to the trip.
