A New Signature Look For The World’s Most Iconic Black Brew, Guinness

November 15, 2020 – 2:20 pm 2 Comments

The world’s most iconic black brew revealed its signature new look for the brand’s Foreign Extra Stout (GFES) variant on Thursday at an exclusive launch held at The Intermark Kuala Lumpur recently. The new look is the latest step forward to bolster GUINNESS’ position as the most distinctive beer in the world, and amongst Malaysia’s best loved brews.

“It’s the first major package redesign for the brand in decades. We are definitely excited about the new look and we did so because we wanted the look of the bottle to reveal a contemporary look for the brand, reflective of its modern and young base of drinkers today”, said Bruce Dallas, Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad. “And, while the Guinness packaging may have an updated look, what’s inside the bottles and cans is still the same authentic taste that comes from St. James’s Gate in Dublin.”

From the beauty of the metallic gold finishes, the standout yellow racetracks of colour and the layering of contemporary typography, the new GFES invites the eye and draws the drinker in. The iconic “bull dog” remains on the neck label as the classic icon of Guinness in Malaysia complete with a sweep of Arthur Guinness’ signature which adds to its premium contemporary aesthetics.

The new look will include GFES pint and quart bottles, as well as the 500ml and 320ml cans, which will be available in the Klang Valley and nationwide from 7th November 2013 onwards.

Guinness, the world’s first ever stout, was created by Arthur Guinness in 1759. Now available in more than 100 countries worldwide, over 10 million glasses of Guinness are enjoyed every single day around the world and 1.8 billion pints are sold every year.

In Malaysia, Bruce said that the brand has undoubtedly become one of the longest established and loved beer brands. “Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is a combination of tradition and heritage, having cemented its position as the nation’s much loved brew over the past 140 years.

Its distinctive bittersweet palette delivers an extraordinary drinking experience. Those who look for a more rewarding drinking experience, the normal pale beers will find that a chilled GUINNESS is both striking and refreshingly crisp – definitely the most distinctive beer in the world.”

Guinness By The Decades Exhibition

September 5, 2020 – 4:38 pm Comments Off

The Mint Museum of Toys today launched a specially curated ‘GUINNESS by the Decades’ Exhibition in conjunction with Guinness Arthur’s Day, a global celebration happening in Singapore for the second year running. The Exhibition features a collection with close to a century of history, consisting of more than fifty unique premiums and advertising materials dating as far back as the 1900s.

From miniature and stoneware beer bottles to quirky metal showcards, the items were acquired over a period of more than 30 years, from both local and overseas dealers as well as through auctions and private sales. Other exhibits include porcelain coin-banks in the shape of the red-tongued Alsatian dog meant for the Singaporean market, the Bulldog for the Malaysian market, and the seated cat for the Indonesian market – these representations also carrying over to other items such as vintage cups and glasses.

“The ‘GUINNESS by the Decades’ Exhibition showcases the strong heritage of the GUINNESS brand, which has stood the test of time and today remains as popular and relevant as when it was first brewed in 1759 in Ireland. The initiative to showcase these rare items is very much in line with the Mint Museum’s approach to displaying antiquated memorabilia from the world over, that draw visitors into a story told by decades past,” said Mr Chang Yang Fa, founder of the Mint Museum of Toys.

A part of the Museum’s effort to capture creative brand campaigns launched both locally and across the globe, the Exhibition truly charts GUINNESS’ journey from humble beginnings to its current status as the world’s most iconic beer brand, enjoyed in over 150 countries around the world. On top of the Exhibition at the Mint Museum, several Singapore- specific artefacts will be also displayed at the Guinness Arthur’s Day concert, headlined by The Fray, on 27 September.

“The collection of GUINNESS memorabilia being presented at the Mint Museum’s exhibition is truly one that will take GUINNESS fans on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. The red- tongued dog, or ‘Ang Ji Kao’, is clearly one of the snippets of history that continues to live on our GUINNESS packaging today, connecting the brand’s illustrious history and heritage with its modern outlook.” said Mr Rene de Monchy, Head of Marketing, Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore.

The ‘GUINNESS by the Decades’ Exhibition at the Mint Museum of Toys runs from 4 to 31 September 2020 during the Museum’s opening hours, from 9.30am to 6.30pm daily. Usual admission charges to the Museum apply, with access to the Exhibition included. Please visit for more details.
