Cheers to Ireland's Beer Pioneer

When it comes to brewing, Guinness has been at the forefront of innovation for centuries. It all started in Dublin's St. James's Gate in 1759 when Arthur Guinness kicked off more than 260 years of incredible craftsmanship, perfecting bold and flavourful beers like the iconic Guinness Draught Stout. Through the years, the state-of-the-art brewery has earned a reputation for its unrelenting inventiveness, from creating their famous widget for cans to keep the beer inside smooth and creamy, to experimenting with exciting new beers that are beloved in over 160 countries.
