Introducing The Brewers Project at St James’s Gate, launched in September 2014 to celebrate the quality and craft of brewing and its pursuit of more at St. James’s Gate. The Brewers Project is about a group of enterprising brewers who are on a quest to explore new recipes, reinterpret old ones and collaborate freely to bring exciting beers to life.
BEERS AVAILABLE AT JACKET REQUIRED
The first releases from The Brewers Project were GUINNESS DUBLIN PORTER and GUINNESS WEST INDIES PORTER.
With origins in a 1796 entry in GUINNESS’ brewers’ diaries, GUINNESS DUBLIN PORTER was inspired by the golden age of porter in the 1800s; a time when porter was the working man’s beer. It is a sweet and smooth porter with malt and caramel notes. GUINNESS WEST INDIES PORTER is based on an 1801 diary for the first GUINNESS purposely brewed to maintain its freshness, from one end of the wold to another. It is a deep rich and characterful porter with hints of toffee and chocolate.
The next release from The Brewers Project was Guinness Golden Ale. Named after its distinctive golden colour, GUINNESS GOLDEN ALE is brewed using GUINNESS yeast, Irish Barley, the finest hops, and a specially selected amber malt that gives the new beer its rich golden hue. The subtle biscuit flavours from the malted barley perfectly complement the crisp bitterness and delicate hop aroma, giving way to a refreshingly clean finish.
The most recent chapter from The Brewers Project is Hop House 13. Named after an early 1900’s hop store building at St. James’s Gate where hops are still stored, Hop House 13 is a double-hopped lager made with Irish barley and aromatic hops and continues the 256 years of heritage and brewing excellence at St. James’s Gate. It is a crisp and full-flavoured lager with subtle malty notes and fresh hop aromas with hints of Apricot and Peach.
