Guinness signed a 9000-year-lease on their brewery back in 1759, so they’ve been around a while and they clearly plan to be around a while longer. Luckily, they have a knack for delicious beers as evidenced by the fact that Guinness was being exported around the world by the end of the 18th century (for a period of time, Guinness was the largest brewer in the world).
For many years (centuries, actually) they focused on stouts. But they’ve always been creative types — opening their first experimental brewery in 1904 and launching Guinness Draught, the world’s first nitro beer in 1959. In 2018, they opened up their Guinness Open Gate Brewery to explore all manner of new beers from sours to IPAs to doppelbocks – all available in the taproom above the brewery.
