Guinness launches porters

04 September, 2014

Guinness has launched two porters inspired by 18th and 19th-century recipes discovered in its historic brewers’ diaries.

Guinness Dublin Porter and Guinness West Indies Porter are the first releases from a new brewing project at the St James’s Gate brewery in Dublin, that gives the company’s brewers more licence to try out new recipes or reinterpret old ones.

Guinness marketing director Stephen O’Kelly said: “As beer lovers’ tastes and the beer landscape itself evolves, it is important we continue to stay at the forefront of beer innovation. Our brewers, at the core of the project, are passionate about pushing boundaries, while keeping true to the Guinness quality our customers know and love. Our two new beers are examples of this innovation and demonstrate the exciting things our brewers are continuing to do with stout.”
