There’s a commercial running on TV for Guinness’s new American Lager beer. I’m not here to critique the beer, or even the fact that Guinness is venturing into a new product line.
No, I’m wondering why they didn’t do their homework. They proudly say that they use Willamette hops. They pronounce it Will-a-met, while it’s pronounced Will-lam-it, Willamette being an area in Oregon.
It’s a lesson for everybody to pay attention and get the little things right. Especially when trying to make a good impression on customers, or prospective customers.
