Guinness Celebrates Its 200th Birthday in America


200 bottle and goblet

Two hundred years ago, a man named Benjamin Guinness used a roasted grain called Black Patent Malt as the foundation of Guinness stout as Americans know it today.

Complete with a bespoke canvas bag printing station, live music, and snacks that included fried chicken and mashed potatoes in a cone, Guinness spared no expense at creating a warm, welcoming environment in which to celebrate this momentous occasion.

To commemorate the expansion of Guinness to America, as well as the ever-evolving partnership between Ireland and America, Guinness has unveiled a new twist on its classic recipe. Inspired by both the color and flavor of the traditional Guinness stout we get here in the states, the 200th Anniversary Export Stout is rich and decadent, with notes of caramel and chocolate. The flavor profile and depth of this beer is the perfect way to transition your palette into fall.

The 200 Years of Stout in America Mixed Pack will revive a few favorite stout recipes that have made appearances along the way, including the Foreign Extra Stout (or personal favorite), the Antwerpen Stout, and the Guinness Original.

This special edition Guinness will only be available for a limited time, so give it a go while you still can!
