Diageo’s Guinness opens experimental brewery to the public

19 November, 2015

Diageo has opened its experimental Guinness Brewery to the public. 

The Open Gate Brewery, at St James’s Gate, will be open to the public every Thursday and Friday night from 5.30pm – 10.30pm.

Guests will have a chance to meet the Guinness brewers in their place of work, discuss the brewing process and sample the great brewing innovations from Guinness.

Speaking about the opening, Guinness brewer Peter Simpson said: “We feel extremely lucky to have free rein to regularly explore and create new beers in small batches. 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.”
