THE STORY OF GUINNESS® IRISH WHEAT
Welcome to Ireland’s sunny side. Far away from the salty sea coastline, the Irish Midlands were the prime spot to grow the wheat for the first ever beer to use 100% Irish wheat malt. Golden in color, with a hint of spicy clove and citrus, Irish Wheat is a clean and lively wheat beer that’s perfect for any occasion.
“Brewed with wheat completely grown in Ireland and fermented with the Guinness yeast, the Irish Wheat beer is a Guinness take on a classic style.”
Our recipe starts with Irish-grown, Irish-malted wheat. A long fermentation with the classic Guinness yeast strain brings out subtle banana, clove and citrus notes—flavors we hold back in our stouts but let loose in our perfectly balanced Irish Wheat. The result is a golden and hazy wheat beer with a clean, crisp, refreshing zesty citrus taste.
