Guinness history changed forever in 1817.

In that year, Benjamin Guinness—Arthur’s son—brewed the first Guinness beer with a new roasted grain called Black Patent Malt. His stout recipe laid the foundation for how Guinness would brew for the next 200 years.

Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout is a new variant inspired by the same dark ruby red color and complex flavor of Benjamin’s beer from 200 years ago. Rich and full-bodied with notes of caramel, toffee and sweet chocolate, it’s smooth-drinking with just the right amount of bitterness.
