That’s right, folks!
Opening at 3pm today, August 3rd, 2018 is a piece of history.
Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House is an $80 million dollar brewery on 62 acres!
They are expecting over 300,000+ visitors between now and the end of 2018.
Arthur Guinness opened his main Guinness Brewery in St. James Gate, Dublin, Ireland in 1759.
The first shipment of Guinness beer arrived in the USA in 1817.
Rich in iron and antioxidant compounds, a 20-ounce pint of Guinness is only 210 calories.
Unlike other taps, Guinness is poured through a five-hole disk restrictor plate. It supplies an uncommon amount of nitrogen, making the head extra-effervescent.
As such, two pours are needed: one to start the magic, and a second to finish the job. The perfect pint is said to take 119.5 seconds to pour.
Hence, the Double Pour.
