Perfect timing for a new USA Guinness store

The USA's first Guinness store is due to open in Las Vegas tomorrow March 17 in the Shoppes at Mandalay Place on the Strip.

The 1,500-foot store will sell Guinness-branded merchandise including pint glasses, hats, shirts and Las Vegas-themed clothing. What's billed as offering the largest selection of Guinness branded merchandise in one venue outside of Ireland will also feature an exhibit that explains the Guinness brewing process.

And while visitors can't sample the world's best-selling stout in the store, they can buy a customized official Guinness pint glass with their names or with the date of their trip to Las Vegas.
