The history of Irish brewing is inextricably linked with the name of Arthur Guinness. Having received a £ 100 from his friend's friend in 1756, he spent it on opening a brewery in Kildare County.

Soon Arthur moved to Dublin, renting an abandoned brewery on St. James Gate. For many years he cooked traditional ale, but in 1799 decided to challenge the dominance of English brewers in the Irish market - and switched to the production of porter.

The brewery produced 3 brands of beer under the general name Extra Porter Stout. Gradually, the word "porter" in the names of brands ceased to be used, and the beer was simply called "stout." Color stout - with a tendency to black, the taste is dry, with a pronounced bitter taste of dark malt. The foam is cream-resistant, resistant.
