Beer beneficiary Patrick Guinness recently gave the Wall Street Journal a tour of his mansion near Dublin. As the descendent of the founder of Guinness beer—and thus pseudo-nobility—he owns an estate with 30 rooms, an obelisk, and a croquet lawn: "I remember thinking at the age of 5, 'Why don't other people live in castles? They're nice.'" [WSJ]
