That’s right, Arthur’s Day is back once again and Guinness is going to celebrate once more in KL!

Cities like Ireland, Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and the Carribean will be celebrating with a massive festival that honours the history of Arthur Guinness and the incredible Guinness beer that loved world over.
