Become a Guinness Believer
You are very likely familiar with Guinness, the stout that has become omnipresent in pubs across the U.S., but do you know the whole story behind the 230-year-old brewing company?
Guinness wants to make you a Believer, and to achieve that end is hosting a series of free events, where you will taste the full range of products and learn more about the history and brewing process of this Irish classic.
Held at the Long View Gallery, these hour-long sessions start with a freshly-poured Guinness Draught (which, despite its creamy head, is only 125 calories per serving), then move on to samples of Foreign Extra Stout (a hoppier cousin, and the oldest continually brewed beer in the world) and Guinness Black Lager, a crisp lager with the roasted barley flavor that's at the heart of all Guinness.
While you imbibe, a Guinness ambassador will introduce you to the history of Arthur Guinness, the brewing method behind the line of suds. You’ll also learn the finer points of how to pour a perfect pint of the dark beer, a ritual that has been crafted over many, many years.
