Guinness Opens Doors On Experimental Brewery In Ireland

Guinness announced the launch of a new brewing experience in Dublin, Ireland, called The Open Gate Brewery.

The experimental brewery has been at St. James's Gate for over a 100 years. There, the brewers are given license to explore new recipes, reinterpret old ones and experiment freely to bring their own beers to life.

For the first time in its history, Guinness has opened its doors to the general public and introduced the world to its brewers and their home of experimentation and innovation.

As well as pouring the famous Guinness stout and the latest innovations from the Brewers Project, such as Guinness Nitro IPA, Hop House 13 Lager, Guinness Dublin Porter and Guinness West Indies Porter, the brewers will be sharing early, small batch versions of their experimental beers to taste. These brews will only be available at The Open Gate Brewery. A selection of other new beers from around the globe, which until now, have never been available under one roof, will also be exclusively available to visitors in The Open Gate Brewery.

"We feel extremely lucky to have free rein to regularly explore and create new beers in small batches," said Guinness Brewer Peter Simpson. "There is huge interest in beer nowadays and my fellow brewers and I are excited to share our experimental beers, which until now, have never been tasted outside the brewery. We are also really looking forward to collaborating with beer enthusiasts from around the world at The Open Gate Brewery in the future."

Beginning in December, the Open Gate Brewery will be open to the public every Thursday and Friday night, from 5:30pm – 10:30pm.
