A taste of the Guinness journey throughout the ages."
Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is a full flavored beer, born of a thirst for adventure. Arthur Guinness was an explorer. He explored the senses. He explored taste. He explored texture. And of course, he was determined to explore pastures new and afar.
In the early 1800s, while other breweries were content to stay close to home, Guinness struck out into unchartered territories, braving the perils of sea travel to export our distinctive beer across the globe.
Brewed with extra hops to preserve the beer in the ships’ holds during voyages of four-to-five weeks in tropical climates, the recipe yielded a powerful drink with bold character.
Originally known as West India Porter, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout has evolved throughout the ages, but its soul has stayed the same.
