Guinness and Christmas come together in glorious harmony.

Beer-themed Christmas trees are traditionally found in student houses when the occupants get creative with the multitude of empty cans and bottles lying around, but an Irish bar in New York has taken the concept to an entirely new level.

You may have already heard of Passage Irish Whiskey Bar in Astoria in New York from our feature on their delicious-looking Lucozade-based cocktails and our chat with the owner, Waterford native Michael Mansfield, earlier this year.

To help make the bar feel extra festive this Christmas, Michael and company made a special Christmas tree using 28 kegs of Guinness with some lights and a star added to finish it all off.

It’s quite an impressive sight.
