Conan O’Brien visits the Guinness Storehouse in DublinIn a recent episode, late-night television host Conan O’Brien took his antics to Dublin, Ireland, visiting the iconic Guinness Storehouse. The segment, filled with humor and lighthearted banter, showcased Conan’s unique style while offering viewers a glimpse into the history and production of Ireland‘s most famous stout. Here’s a recap of Conan’s entertaining visit to the Guinness Storehouse.

A Warm Welcome and a Quest for Free Guinness

Conan O’Brien visits the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. Conan begins his tour with a typical dose of humor, confessing that his main motivation for visiting the Guinness Storehouse was to get some free Guinness. Joined by Kira, a storehouse assistant, Conan dives into the history and production of Guinness, though it’s clear his mind is on the eventual tasting.

Kira explains that the Guinness Storehouse lease, signed in 1759, was for an astounding 9,000 years, a fact that immediately catches Conan’s comedic attention. They then move to the ingredient section where Kira introduces Conan to the four essential components of Guinness: barley, hops, yeast, and water. Ever the comedian, Conan misinterprets the sound of a waterfall for the aftermath of a Guinness tasting.

Interactive Antics and Hilarity Ensue

Conan’s curiosity leads him to sample barley, hoping to feel the effects of a pint of Guinness. Despite Kira’s assurances that chewing barley won’t give him a buzz, Conan persists in his playful manner. Their tour continues through the historical displays, including a portrait of Arthur Guinness, which Conan humorously remarks as the smile of a man who landed a 9,000-year lease.

The segment also touches on the roasting process, essential for Guinness‘s distinct flavor, and Conan’s interactions with the staff provide more opportunities for laughs. At one point, he tries to negotiate a glass of Guinness by offering to perform pull-ups on a steel beam.

The Wall of Fame and Presidential Humor

The tour includes a visit to the Wall of Fame, showcasing famous visitors who have enjoyed Guinness at the Storehouse. Conan quips about a photo of Air Force One’s crew, suggesting they enjoyed Guinness before flying the president. He also humorously speculates that Paul Rudd, another famous visitor, definitely received free Guinness given his cheerful expression in the photo.

The Ultimate Pour: A Lesson from a Master Brewer

The highlight of Conan’s visit is his encounter with Fergal Murray, a master brewer, who teaches him the six steps to pouring the perfect pint of Guinness. Conan’s attempts at pouring are predictably chaotic, but Fergal patiently guides him through the process. They discuss the importance of looking at the horizon while drinking Guinness, adding an amusing twist to the tasting lesson.

After several attempts, Conan finally manages to pour and drink a pint correctly, celebrating with a cheeky comment about remaining at the Storehouse for a while. His comedic charm even wins over a staff member, who finds him charming despite his antics.

A Memorable Experience

When Conan O’Brien visits the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, it was not only hilarious but also informative, shedding light on the rich history and meticulous process behind brewing Guinness. His interactions with the staff, combined with his signature humor, made for an entertaining segment that both educated and amused viewers.

By the end of the tour, Conan’s genuine appreciation for the craft of brewing and the iconic status of Guinness shone through, even as he continued to joke about his main goal of obtaining free Guinness. The segment serves as a delightful reminder of the cultural significance of Guinness and the joy it brings to people around the world.
