A Japanese man is attempting to drink a Guinness in every Dublin pub

A JAPANESE man is attempting to drink a Guinness in every pub in the Irish capital.

Armed only with a battered copy of the Dublin pub spotter's guide, Dublin-based Yuya Abe is attempting drink a Guinness in every one of Dublin’s 751 pubs.

At each pub he visits, he orders a pint of the world famous stout and gets the barman to sign under the pub’s entry in the guide, which is written by Mac Moloney.

Abe is now four months in to what is quite possibly the world’s most epic pub crawl, according to Publin.

On Wednesday he sunk his 225th pint of the black stuff in Slattery’s in the city centre, where the pub’s manager poured him one on the house.

Owner Irial Slattery said: “Japan doesn’t really have a pub culture the way the UK and Ireland does, so it’s really interesting to have someone come over from the far east and want to drink a pint in all the pubs and bars in Dublin, it’s quite humorous really.

"We’re very much a rugby pub and the Japanese victory over South Africa caught everyone's imagination, that alone deserves a free pint.

"He must have the constitution of a horse now, having drunk so many pints.”

Sláinte, Abe.
