The investigation revealed that Leu Bank was involved in half of the purchases. Two of the Guinness directors signed sub-table contracts in which Leu Bank subsidiaries in Zug and Lucerne bought 41 million Guinness shares. Guinness has secretly promised to ingest shares at a price, including commissions. In response to the end of the case, Guinness deposited $76 million with the Luxembourg subsidiary of Leu Bank. The owner of St James`s Gate Brewery applied for $100 on bail and $45 a month in rent. On December 31, 1759, Arthur managed to convince the owner to sign a lease for up to 9,000 years… Under these conditions, Guinness beer is still brewed at St. James Gate and the company pays $45 in loyalty each month! As others have said, they bought the lease years ago, so the country is now wholly and precisely owned. Previously, they owned the buildings, but only leased the land on which they were built. They would have paid rent every year, like any tenant. The advantage for the landowner is that it allows them to set conditions for the use of the land and perhaps dislodge the tenant if he does not meet these conditions, while the tenant obtains a guarantee, knowing that he has a very long lease, and can effectively treat the land as if he owned it.
Arthur Guinness began brewing Ales in Leixlip, County Kildare, then from 1759 in St James`s Gate in Dublin. On December 31, he signed a 9,000-year lease agreement for 45 $US per year for the unused brewery.   However, the lease is no longer in effect since the brewery`s land was acquired at the time of the extension beyond the original 4-hectare site.  On 31 December 1759, Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease for St James`s Gate Brewery in Dublin. The lease required a down payment of 100 $US and an annual instalment of 45 $US. The company eventually purchased the land directly. Originally rented to Arthur Guinness in 1759 for $45 a year, the St James`s Gate area has been the home of Guinness. With an annual production of 1.2 million barrels, it became the largest brewery in Ireland in 1838 and the largest in the world in 1886.  Although it is no longer the largest brewery in the world, it remains the largest brewery in Stout. Since then, the company has purchased the leased land and in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the brewery owned most of the surrounding buildings, including many apartment streets for brewers and offices connected to the brewery.
