„St. Patrick’s Day is awaited with great delight by the Romanian consumers, every year. This year, however, we will celebrate in non-typical contexts, from home or in pubs opened at restricted capacity. This was the time when we usually joined forces with our Horeca partners and organized special events and engaging activities – dedicated for those who appreciate the taste of an authentic Guinness. St. Patrick’s Day will not disappear from our lives in 2021, but we will continue to celebrate it in a different context. Consumers can find us in large chain stores or in online shops for safe Irish tasting experiences. Because wherever a Guinness pint will be poured, St. Patrick’s Day will be happening! ” – Paul Markovits, URBB Marketing Vice-President.
