Guinness® International Further Stout is a beer born of a thirst for journey, tracing its origins again to a recipe for our West India Porter, first set out by Arthur Guinness II in 1801. Within the early 1800s, whereas different breweries had been content material to remain near dwelling, we struck out into unchartered territories, braving the perils of sea journey to export our well-known black beer throughout the globe. Brewed with extra hops to protect the beer within the ships’ holds throughout voyages of four-to-five weeks in tropical climes, the recipe yielded a strong drink with a posh, fruity bittersweet flavour.
Whereas our proudest invention so far arrived to be embraced by remainder of the world, again within the brewery the workforce remained centered on the journey forward. What was then referred to as West India Porter grew to become the International Further Stout loved right this moment. However because the physique advanced, its soul remained the identical. It is the place custom meets innovation. And we’re proud to move that throughout continents.
