The Story of Guinness® Antwerpen

When the Belgian brewing industry was suffering from the impact of World War II, John Martin created Guinness Antwerpen. It was first imported to Belgium in 1944 and thankfully managed to survive the war. Since then it has become a sought-after specialty beer. The rich, smoky, malty taste is balanced with a sweet, fruity finish. And although light and creamy in texture, it’s still unmistakably part of the Guinness family.

“Guinness Antwerpen is a survivor of World War II. First imported to Belgium in 1944, to this day it remains a sought-after specialty beer.”

Guinness Antwerpen has a light and creamy texture. It’s produced with a lower hop rate to give it a malty taste that’s less bitter than other stouts. Hints of vanilla, butterscotch and dark fruity flavours deliver a sweet finish.
