It all began in 1759, when Arthur Guinness leased St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin and started making his own beer. Guinness Draught was developed later in the 20th century, more specifically in 1959, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the 9 000 year lease on the St. James’s Gate Brewery.
A pioneering combination of nitrogen and carbon dioxide, Guinness Draught is available in bottles, cans and as draft beer.
With a coffee and malt aroma, Guinness has a rich and creamy body. The malt’s sweetness balances with the toasted hints of cereal and slight hop bitterness.
