Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout

Published By

Ireland’s black beer is turning red white and blue. 200 years ago the US had just 20 states, the typewriter hadn’t been invented yet and no American had ever taken a train ride. But we had Guinness. 1817 marked the first time barrels of Guinness made their way stateside (and they got here via sailing ship). To celebrate 2 centuries of Americans drinking the stout with the harp, they’re offering a 200th Anniversary Export Stout.

They went back through the brew logs and took a look at how Guinness was being brewed way back when and replicated it for this anniversary edition. It’s brewed from a roasted grain malt called black patent, sort of a precursor to the roasted barley malt used in today’s standard Guinness stout. It’s got a dark ruby color and notes of toffee, caramel and chocolate with a dry finish. And it no longer takes 3 months to get here. Learn more at Guinness.
