GUINNESS 25O ANNIVERSARY STOUT

To mark the 25Oth anniversary of the signing of the 9OOO year lease on St. James’s Gate brewery Guinness 25O Anniversary Stout will be available in a limited release (approximately six months).
This is the first new stout offering in the US from Guinness since 1966 when it was first introduced to Americans.  The commemorative stout is carbonated, not nitrogenated like the traditional Guinness Draught, with a crisp effervescent taste, a balanced malty, roasted, hop flavor that is enhanced when released, and a refreshing and smooth carbonated mouthfeel.  The Anniversary Stout is made using a unique brew house process that blends two malt types in a double “brew stream” along with water from the Wicklow Hills and roasted barley.  There will be a year-long celebration to mark the anniversary.  Available in bottles and on draught, retail is between $7.99 and $8.49 per 6-pack.
Available from Atlas Distributing, Burke Distributing, Colonial Wholesale Beverage, Commercial Distributing Company, L. Knife & Son, and Seaboard Products Company.
