Guinness® The 1759™ is an ultra-premium beer brewed with both traditional beer malt and the same peated whisky malt used in the world’s finest Scotch and Irish whiskies. Inspired by a 200 year old recipe and brewed with the same Guinness yeast that has been used for more than 125 years, this rich amber ale offers new style and flavor under the Guinness trademark. Using the mastery that comes from more than 250 years of brewing experience, the Guinness Master Brewers have created a beer unlike any other European import on the market. With only 90,000 bottles being produced, the commemorative release of Guinness® The 1759™ is a chance to be part of Guinness’ brewing history. The name is derived from the year Arthur Guinness signed the 9,000 year old lease at St. James’s Gate in Dublin so he could brew what would become one of the most respected and beloved beer brands in the world.
