The Guinness Storehouse, Ireland’s No. 1 international visitor attraction, today announced the opening of the Guinness Connoisseur Bar Experience. Now, during a visit at the Home of Guinness in Dublin, Ireland, legal drinking age Guinness fans and beer lovers can learn how to appreciate and taste the most popular Guinness variants.
As the first and most exclusive Guinness beer connoisseur experience in the world, this tutored tasting will take Guinness Storehouse visitors on a sensory journey through four different Guinness variants – Guinness Draught, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, Guinness Original, and the newest member of the Guinness variant family, Guinness Black Lager. The recently unveiled Guinness Generous Ale, a limited-edition Holiday Ale, will also join the four Guinness variants throughout the sensory experience for a limited time.
“There is a science to tasting and appreciating a quality beer like Guinness,” said Fergal Murray, Guinness master Brewer. “The new Guinness Connoisseur Bar Experience at the Guinness Storehouse enables visitors to become part of an exclusive club of Guinness Ambassadors while learning the intricacies of each Guinness beer variant at the finest Guinness beer connoisseur bar in the world.”
Each Guinness Storehouse visitor begins the Guinness Connoisseur Bar Experience with a trained Guinness expert. After learning the legacy behind each Guinness variant, visitors participate in an introductory sensory exploration, where each is taught how to appropriately examine Guinness through sight, taste and smell. Beer aficionados will learn about pouring rituals and flavor notes through an intimate tutored tasting session.
Upon concluding the Guinness Connoisseur Bar Experience, visitors receive a VIP tasting card, as well as exclusive lapel pin that signify their newly acquired knowledge and expertise as a Guinness Connoisseur.
Whether taking part in the Guinness Connoisseur Experience in Dublin, having a pint at a local pub or raising a bottle of Guinness Black Lager with friends, the iconic brewer reminds all legal drinking age adult consumers to enjoy its products responsibly.
