The Story of GUINNESS® Hop House 13 Lager

Sample Guinness Hop House 13 and you’ll experience a lager made with so much more. More hops. More character. More taste. It’s a lively sip with accents of apricot and peach. The flavor deepens into subtle malt with a medium body. Combining our famous Guinness yeast with Irish-grown barley in a lager brewing process, our brewers changed the game.

Located at our legendary St. James’s Gate brewery, the Brewers Project allows our best brewers to experiment with recipes old and new. This double-hopped lager is the next chapter in that project. It’s decidedly modern and totally different. With more ingredients comes more character. 100% Irish-grown malted barley. The distinctive Guinness yeast. A mixture of Australian and American hops runs as an undercurrent through this incredibly deep beer, which is fresh at the surface and complex at the bottom. Our brewers set out to create something that would stimulate your palate and senses alike. From the first sip to the lingering finish, this beer is surprising. 

The team

The Brewers Project allows our best brewers to experiment with recipes old and new

Brewers have always been at the heart of Guinness, and it’s for them – and for you – that we created the Brewers Project, a chance for our enterprising and innovative craftsmen to reinvent old recipes and dream up entirely new brews. Guinness Golden Ale is one such example. Ale might seem like a new addition to the Guinness family, but in fact, it couldn’t be more ingrained in our past. Before Arthur Guinness made the decision to focus solely on brewing porter, he was creating more traditional-style ales. Fast-forward to the present day and Guinness brewer Peter Simpson has created modern ale worthy of our name. Brewed with the finest hops, Irish barley and a carefully chosen amber malt, it’s different, but – like every one of our new innovations – it’s a slice of our immovable heritage brought forward into the twenty-first century.
