Experimental brewery and taproom

The Guinness Open Gate Brewery is the home of brewing experimentation and innovation at St. James’s Gate, where there has been an experimental brewery for over 100 years. Here Guinness brewers are given license to explore new recipes, reinterpret old ones and experiment freely to bring exciting beers to life.

For only €9 you can try a paddle of four beers, exclusive to the Guinness Open Gate Brewery. Chat to the Beer Specialists behind the bar who will guide you through their constant rotating roster of beers, meaning you could be one of the first to ever taste the beer on tap! Try the specially curated food menu, designed to pair with these beers perfectly.
