Guinness Brewery St James’s Gate

Guinness2Dave had the opportunity to taste Guinness at its best at the world famous St James’s Gate Brewery.

My Guinness was brewed from the finest Irish barley, water from the Wiklow mountains, hops from around the world and used a strain of yeast dating back over 200 years.  It was then pumped full of nitrogen, served in a 20oz tulip glass and of course let to settle for the obligatory 119.5s before being topped off and finally handed over to me for tasting.

Guinness doesn’t get any better than this… but it’s still only Guinness!

Harper Arms Rating (5=Tribute, 1=Carling): (3.5 / 5)
