Product description

Guinness Draught Stout is the original nitrogen-infused beer. Although to the uninitiated, it can look dark and heavy, it actually tastes deliciously light and smooth, swirling with notes of roasted barley, caramel, coffee and chocolate. The net result is a flavorful stout that’s as approachable as a lager — which it has long been one of the world’s great pub beers. Another surprise is its low-calorie count, just 126 calories for a 12-ounce serve. That’s just 15 calories less than a typical light beer.

    Great beer to enjoy.

  • Mark Gotham

    Love it but the nitro in the cans is inconsistent. I’ve had way too many that don’t pour as they should.

FAQs

Guinness is created, like all beers, from grain. In the case of Guinness, the specific grain used is barley, which is malted and then roasted, giving Guinness its well known distinct color. For being a stout-style beer, it’s actually not much higher in calories than lighter beers. The average calories and carbohydrates per every 12-ounce (355 milliliters) is 125 calories and 10 grams of carbohydrates. This is due in part to the alcohol content of Guinness being lower than most stouts, at an ABV of 4.2%. Lastly, the beer does provide a minute source of 1 gram of protein with zero grams of fat.
Guinness is a stout that consistently surprises people as a light(ish) beer. Guinness likely has this light quality because of the previously mentioned ABV of 4.2%, a lower ABV than many stouts, which can easily have ABV percentages well above eight and even ten percent. In fact, most light beers have a similar or slightly higher ABV than Guinness. However, if you are new to Guinness, make sure you are enjoying Guinness Draught and not Guinness Extra Stout, as the latter has an ABV of approximately two times that of the Guinness Draught.
Yes, and this applies to all forms of Guinness, including the original Guinness Draught stout. Guinness is a perfect “secret” ingredient to many recipes because of its light finish yet dark and slightly chocolate taste which fills the mouth with a welcome aroma of roasted grains, a practical and inviting addition to a variety of recipes and levels of culinary experience. From adding a  delightful enhancement to desserts to marinating your favorite cut of beef or pork, Guinness stimulates culinary creativity. The recipes for Guinness emerge from amateur cooking blogs to professional food organizations. 
Guinness is a great gift for anyone who enjoys stouts and or beers with robust and memorable tasting profiles. It is also a gift that offers so much historical tradition and is a welcome accompaniment to any holiday gathering. Additionally, Guinness is a splendid gift for those who are starting their personal exploration of stouts or beer in general. The nature of Guinness as a classic beer and its overall characteristics are a wonderful introduction to the delicious beers produced by the world of stouts at large.  Overall, an internationally renowned beer like Guinness is an excellent gift, especially for its affordable price. 

About The Brand

Guinness signed a 9000-year-lease on their brewery back in 1759, so they've been around a while and they clearly plan to be around a while longer. Luckily, they have a knack for delicious beers as evidenced by the fact that Guinness was being exported around the world by the end of the 18th century (for a period of time, Guinness was the largest brewer in the world).

For many years (centuries, actually) they focused on stouts. But they've always been creative types — opening their first experimental brewery in 1904 and launching Guinness Draught, the world's first nitro beer in 1959. In 2018, they opened up their Guinness Open Gate Brewery to explore all manner of new beers from sours to IPAs to doppelbocks – all available in the taproom above the brewery.


Guinness Recipes

Dublin Drop

  • shot

No longer a politically correct term as the name, Irish Car Bomb, references a dark time in Ireland's history, this bomber style shot is still quite popular stateside, especially on St. Patrick's Day. As veterans will tell you, drink it quickly or you're left with a curdled class of beer, whiskey, and irish cream.

Shamrock Shake Smash

  • spring

This festive take on an ice cream float combines the classic smooth flavor of Guinness Stout with the funky (but familiar) McDonald's Shamrock Shake. It's like your very own pot of gold, no rainbow required.

Half And Half

  • beer

The Black and Tan is a classic beer cocktail where a pale ale and stout beers are layered in a pint glass to show the light and dark combination this drink's name suggests.
