There will be no shortage of Guinness in the United States this year as import companies' figures show that imports are up by 244 percent for the same period compared to last year.
Panjiva, a firm which analyzes bills of ships bringing goods into the United States, found that far less Guinness was shipped from Ireland to the U.S. during the same period in 2010.
Now the draft Guinness drought is over.
Their figures show a complete rebound from the more "quiet" 2010 when there was "less than impressive import numbers."
The Boston Globe questions whether the drop in figures last year could simply be due to the recession in the U.S.
Some speculate the increase in figure is now due to the 1,000 people per week emigrating from Ireland.
