The Story of Guinness® Dublin Porter
Sip Dublin Porter and you’re sampling Guinness history. Light but well rounded. Sweet and smooth. Just bitter enough. This is a beer inspired by an archival recipe from our brewers’ diaries, dating back to 1796. Mastered then, perfected now: fewer hops are used and the maturation process is shorter, resulting in a malt-caramel finish that’s easy and satisfying to drink, whichever century you’re in.
“A malt-caramel finish that’s easy and satisfying to drink”
Often, the best way to move forward is to take a look back. That was the method employed for Dublin Porter. Expert brewers at our innovative The Open Gateway Brewery uncovered diary notes and accounts while poring over extensive records from Guinness' past. There, they found a recipe ripe for the present. Blending expertise with qualified interpretation, their resulting beer was a recreation of the porter once perfected by Arthur Guinness to be shipped to England in the late 1790s. Tasted by a panel of experts and then finely tuned, Dublin Porter is a historic beer reinterpreted for a modern palate: earthy, lively and charged with flavour.
