Here is my best explanation:

'arena' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'guinness head on a number of beers from the bar' is the subsidiary indication.

'head' indicates taking the first letters.

'on' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'a number of beers from the bar' becomes 'round' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

The first letter of 'guinness' is 'g'.

'g'+'round'='ground'

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for ground that I've seen before include "Land surface", "Reduced to powder", "Foundation", "Stop (a pilot) flying", "Earth; stop from flying", "Pulverised; land", "Powdered; land", "Bring down", "The solid surface of the Earth" and "cause".)
