Guinness Stout

Guinness StoutGuinness Stout is rich, creamy, and distinctively dark. This is one beautiful beer. The contrast of the beer and head is striking. Sweet and bitter harmonize with a velvety finish. And, just as the unmistakable white head sits flush atop the dark beer, so do the flavors counter and combine perfectly.

Guinness is a traditional Irish stout beer made from roasted barley, hops, yeast, and water. The deep color and caramelized flavor that are characteristic of Guinness come from barley that has been roasted but not malted. The thick, creamy head that Guinness is well known for is achieved by mixing the beer with nitrogen, which creates smaller bubbles and thus a thicker head.

Arthur Guinness started brewing ales in 1759 at the St. James’s Gate Brewery, Dublin. On 31 December 1759, he signed a 9,000-year lease at £45 per year for the brewery. Guinness is now one of the most successful beer brands worldwide, and the most often poured in Ireland.
