With such an unprecedented year coming to a close, Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore, Maryland is helping deliver some holiday cheer.

Guinness Open Gate Brewery has announced that its Holiday Light Walk will be unveiled this Thursday, December 10 with a number of outdoor installations to view as you enjoy a beer or two responsibly. 

The installations will feature historic Guinness artwork, such as a toucan, harp, seal, and even a Maryland crab. 

In addition to the lights, the brewery will bring back its Diageo holiday keg tree, constructed from more than 250 kegs this year. The installations can be enjoyed all December long and are free and open to the general public. 

Holiday Beers that are currently available at Guinness Open Gate Brewery to help keep your spirits bright include:

  • Gingerbread Spiced Stout: This winter treat, with an 11% ABV, was brewed with allspice, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg, then aged in bourbon barrels.
    Imperial Stout: This roasty beer also has a velvety mouthfeel, notes of chocolate, bourbon -- not to mention hints of coconut and vanilla -- and an oak finish with a 10.3% ABV.
  • Winter Warmer: Reminiscent of cream soda, this dark brown beer with a cream-colored head highlights flavors of vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon with light toasty, bready malt characteristics and a 7.1% ABV.
  • Barrel Aged Coffee and Coconut Porter in collaboration with Vent Coffee Roasters is a bourbon and coffee lover's dream backed by strong dark coffee and layers of coconut with notes of bourbon and a 10.2% ABV.

These beers and more are also available from Guinness Open Gate Brewery's curbside pick-up service, which you can learn more about here.

Guinness Open Gate Brewery is also hosting free movie nights to help you get in the holiday spirit! Movies will be shown in a heated tent. No tickets are required and the seating area is first come, first served. Popcorn, candy, along with your brewery favorites will be served.
