Harp Lager

Friday has happy hour and it is usually time for many people to get beer after work.

Harp Lager was first produced in 1960 in The Great Northern Brewery, Dundalk as a bottled beer. By 1961 it was brewed under an alliance of the brewing companies, Courage, Barclay & Simonds, Scottish & Newcastle, Bass, Mitchells, & Butlers and Guinness. These companies grouped together under the name of the Harp Lager Ltd. By 1964 it was being sold on draught and quickly became the category sales leader.

In 2005 Harp saw a makeover, Diageo Ireland separated the brand from Guinness and gave it a new look, the Harp logo.

Mix Harp Lager and Guinness for an authentic Half & Half! Since I do not drink beer, I don't have much to say, except: TGIF.

I used to drink Harp lager, though these days am not much of a drinker and did not think they still made it.
Good to see it is still around.
