Yes. As well as pouring our famous GUINNESS stout and latest Brewers Project releases like Hop House 13 Lager, Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter, our brewers will be sharing early, small-batch versions of their experimental beers every week for visitors to try exclusively at The Open Gate Brewery. Examples of other new Brewers Project beers created for other markets around the world, but not currently available in Ireland, will also be exclusively on tap at The Open Gate Brewery.
Recent examples would be Guinness Nitro IPA which we recently launched in the US and Guinness Golden Ale that we recently launched in GB. These will be exclusively available in Ireland at The Open Gate Brewery.
You will get a chance to experience first-hand what happens within GUINNESS's experimental brewery as well as having a chance to meet our brewers and brewing experts. PLUS you'll receive a beer tasting board of four sample size beers. We think this will be a hugely enjoyable experience for all you beer enthusiasts.
You can purchase our famous GUINNESS stout and latest Brewers Project releases like Hop House 13 Lager, Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter at recommended retail prices (RRP). You can also purchase our experimental beers at similar prices exclusively at The Open Gate Brewery. Every visitor will receive a complimentary beer tasting board of four sample size beers on arrival.
You will be surrounded by our experimental brewery facility on your visit. Rather than a walking tour of the facility, our brewers and beer experts will be on hand to meet you and explain in detail what goes on inside the facility.
Unfortunately not, initially we will be open to the general public for two nights a week. The Open Gate Brewery is primarily a brewing facility and will continue to be used as a place of work for our brewers and other staff for the remainder of the week.
While The Open Gate Brewery is focused on being a unique experience for beer enthusiasts, we will also have some gourmet snack food offerings available to purchase that complement our beers.
