Guinness: The cult beer from Ireland The Guinness beer is one of the most imported beers worldwide. People in more than 150 countries around the world enjoy the unique taste of the so-called black gold. No wonder, therefore, that a veritable cult has developed around Irish beer. In 1759 Arthur Guinness laid the foundation for a beer that brings people together all over the world. He leased the St. James's Gate Brewery in Dublin for no less than 9,000 years! And the black gold is still brewed there today. But just like Guinness beer itself, the brewery has developed steadily over the years. Today, visitors can take an interactive tour of the brewery, where they are initiated into the art of brewing beer. What makes Guinness beer so unique? In countless pictures, Guinness beer is depicted in deep black with a perfect white head. But if you take a closer look, you will see that the black gold is actually ruby red. This is due to the malted barley, which is an important component of the beer. And the perfect, firm head is created by rising nitrogen bubbles and carbonic acid.
