Old Friend, New Brew

Two hundred and fifty years ago an enterprising lad named Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease on a Dublin brewery. He never recouped his security deposit, but his beer is still going strong. In celebration, Guinness is releasing a rare new offering, Anniversary Stout. Made with both stout and ale malts, it’s lighter, crisper and more carbonated than its venerable forebear. Get it now, though–its lease is up in October.

And from the Guinness website

This is the year to celebrate! That’s why our Master Brewer has created the limited edition Guinness® 250 Anniversary Stout. We used a proprietary brewhouse process that combines the use of stout and ale malt for a distinctive carbonated stout with a clean, smooth finish. This is the first new Guinness® stout we’ve introduced to the US since we first started importing Guinness® Draught in 1967, but it’s only available for a limited time. So starting on April 24th, get out with some friends and try a pint of our brand new brew!

I’m off to the store…
