Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout

Oct 20, 2017

Category: Vices

It was 200 years ago in 1817 when Arthur Guinness’ son – Benjamin – brewed a batch of beer with a special roasted grain called black patent malt. It was this defining moment that laid the groundwork for Guinness’ unique profile and brewing strategy for the next two centuries.

Surprisingly enough, that same year marked the initial shipment of Guinness barrels to the US and to this day remains one the most drunken stouts from sea to shining sea. Now, the famed Irish brewery is slated to release the 200th Anniversary Export Stout – bringing to life the same dark ruby red color ale that Benjamin himself brewed 200 years ago. It’s a rich and full bodied brew with tasting notes alluding to caramel, toffee, and sweet chocolate. Drink up America, here’s to another two centuries of delicious beer. Cheers.
