For over 70 years, UK woman Doris Olive Netting has put back a glass of Guinness every day. She thanks the Irish stout’s old marketing campaigns for helping her discover that “Guinness is good for you.”
It’s been claimed that Guinness is good for you in a whole variety of ways, from the iron helping pregnant mothers to how it may improve your hearing in general. No matter the real health benefits of the Irish stout, however, all we know is that it’s delicious and so we’re more than willing to latch on to this new life expectancy claim made by UK woman Doris Olive Netting.
Since the Second World War (yes, that over 70 years) Netting has slugged back a pint of the black stuff and she believes that it’s this daily tradition that recently saw her reach her centenary year.

Guinness is good for you. 🇮🇪
The Plymouth woman has placed her lasting health down to the stout, after first beginning to have a glass each day when their older marketing campaigns would talk about the high levels of iron it contained.
"She absolutely loves Guinness, she's had a bottle a day since the war,” her granddaughter Tammy Netting told The Sun.
"She refuses to go a day without drinking it."
And what better way to celebrate her 100th year and her letter from English Queen Elizabeth than with a Guinness-themed party with balloons, Guinness food treats, and of course, a glass of the good stuff itself.
