Fancy the idea of tasting a selection of pro-type experimental beers at the most famous brewery in the world?

 

Well now you can thanks to the launch of The Open Gate Brewery at Guinness HQ – St James’s Gate. Think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for adults and no Oompa Loompas in sight.

For over a hundred years, there has been an experimental brewery at St James’s Gate where the brewers are given license to explore new recipes, reinterpret old ones and experiment freely to bring exciting new beers to life.

Now, for the first time in history, the brewers will welcome the public into the brewery, the home of experimentation and innovation with the launch of The Open Gate Brewery, an intimate brewing experience at St James’s Gate.

Speaking about the opening, Guinness Brewer Peter Simpson said, “We feel extremely lucky to work in The Open Gate Brewery because my fellow brewers and I are given free rein to regularly explore and create new beers in small batches. There is huge interest in beer nowadays so it’s exciting to open the doors to the public, give people a look inside our world, and of course share some batches of experimental beers that we are working on.” 

We’ll drink to that…
