Brewers’ diaries inspire Guinness porters

5th September, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Two new porters inspired by recipes found in the diaries of two former brewers from 1796 and 1801 have been unveiled by Guinness.

GUINNESS DUBLIN PORTER AND WEST INDIES PORTER 2

Guinness Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter have been created as part of a new brewing project underway at the St James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin based on recipes found in its former brewers’ diaries from the late 1700s and early 1800s.

‘The Brewers Project’ gives Guinness brewers license to explore new recipes, reinterpret old ones and “collaborate freely to bring exciting beers to life”.

Stephen OKelly, marketing director of Guinness, Western Europe, said: “As beer lovers’ tastes and the beer landscape itself evolves, it is important we continue to stay at the forefront of beer innovation. Our brewers, at the core of the project, are passionate about pushing boundaries, whilst keeping true to the Guinness quality our customers know and love. Our two new beers; Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter are examples of this innovation and demonstrate the exciting things our brewers are continuing to do with stout.“

“It’s an exciting time in the beer market, and we have made a big commitment to growing Guinness, through innovation, in the years to come. Guinness is only 255 years into its 9,000-year lease on the St. James’s Gate brewery in Dublin; these two new releases are the first taste of what’s to come.”

The new beers will be available in selected pubs and retailers from mid-September.
