It is definitely the pride, not just for Dublin, but for the entire country – Guinness Beer. You see them in every bar around the country, why even any bar in the world. So, if you are in Dublin, and have enough time, do check out this Guinness Storehouse. It’s rich, grand, and there’s loads of information about Guinness.
Located at St.James Gate in Dublin, the place where the brewery was founded in 1759 by Arthur Guinness. Back then, 64 acres was leased out to Mr.Guinness for £45 per year for 9000 years. The original lease contract is displayed in the main hall.
Although we are not allowed to enter the actual brewery, we can visit the museum which exhibits 250 years of history. A 7 storey museum which is dedicated to different processes of making Guinness. It has information and story about history of Guinness family, the cultivation and production of Barley, ingredients used (Barley, Yeast, Hops, Water), equipment used in roasting and brewing brewing methods, advertising, and storing methods.
As said in the above picture, the taste and color of this beer is the trademark of Arthur, which completely lies in their brewing. And Guinness is lower in alcohol than rest of the beers because of the low yeast content. Display of bottles here are the different packaging used over 250 years in selling Guinness.
Final floor is the Gravity Bar where you can enjoy the 360 degree view of beautiful Dublin City and grab the complimentary 1 pint of Guinness beer. The view is sure stunning; “So is the Guinness” says hubby holding the complementary pint. For now, enjoy the view of the brewery and the Dublin city from Gravity Bar.
