About Guinness Open Gate Brewery
“In 2015 we opened the longstanding pilot brewery at St James’s Gate to the public. We literally opened the gate to the place in which innovative brewers have long been working to explore new beers for Guinness, so we called it the Open Gate Brewery.
Our brewery in Baltimore shares the spirit of exploration and discovery of its sister brewery in Dublin, hence the name. However, the brewery is also a center of exploration and innovation in barrel-aging, as a nod not only to the site’s heritage as a distillery (the visitor center is being built in an old barrel rick house), but also to the long tradition Guinness has of aging beer in wood.
We know that it will take some time, but we’re hopeful that the Open Gate Brewery will become a leading destination for unique barrel-aged beers.”
