HUNDREDS of revellers gathered at the Roxbury Pub & Bistro in Seberang Jaya, Penang, to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
The celebration organised by Guinness was joined by thousands of others across the country as they celebrated the festival of all things Irish for three days.
For a start, the first 50 Guinness fans received a drink ‘on the house’ at 6pm during the celebrations at the pub on Friday.
Heineken Malaysia channel execution manager Chan Kok Wai, who was present, said Guinness was first brewed in Ireland in 1759 and has a long history associated with St Patrick’s Day.
“The Guinness St Patrick’s celebration in Penang was held concurrently in Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh, Johor Baru, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and Miri.
“The Guinness events also coincide with those in Dublin, New York, Sydney and many other cities across the world.
“More than 13 million pints of Guinness are consumed by drinkers worldwide on that day,” he said.
Throughout the evening, guests were also treated to delicious Irish food and Guinness-infused dishes.
They were kept entertained by the Rhythm Nation Band, and the fun continued with exciting games and activities.
Fans were also given a chance to take part in trivia games which earned them Guinness collectibles.
