The Story of Guinness® Black Lager

It was 1799 when Arthur Guinness made the bold decision to cease brewing ales in favour of his now-famous stout. So it’s safe to say, over 200 years later, that we know a thing or two about making black beer.

Crisp from the start and featuring a subtle flavour profile, Guinness Black Lager is a dark beer with a lighter side. Dreamt up by our pioneering brewers, it’s made with the finest lager hops and crafted using traditional cold brewing methods. This, combined with our groundbreaking Guinness lager yeast and signature roasted barley, creates a truly original black lager with deliciously distinctive taste.

“Refreshingly complex and decidedly unique, Guinness Black Lager is a fitting addition to a legacy of innovative brewing.”

Gentle floral and fruity aromas invite the first sip, which quickly reveals a subtly sweet, malt-and-roast character, followed by a pleasant hop finish. Refreshingly complex and decidedly unique, Guinness Black Lager is a fitting addition to a legacy of innovative brewing.
