CSCMP Baltimore Roundtable Presents:
Tour Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Thursday, September 12, 2019
Join us as we tour Guinness Open Gate Brewery, the first stateside brewery of Guinness since 1954! Attendees will tour the facility, sample beer and network over appetizers!
Maryland’s Guinness brewery is a destination for fans — and everyone else, too!
More than 13 million pints of Guinness Draught Stout will be consumed around the world on St. Patrick’s Day. Although you can enjoy a couple of glasses of the black stuff at your local pub on Sunday, wouldn’t you rather drink Guinness at the Guinness brewery?
The beloved Irish brewer made a splash in 2017 when it opened a taproom and experimental brewery on the site of the old Calvert Distillery just north of Baltimore-Washington International Marshall Airport, marking the first time since the 1950s that Guinness operated a brewery in the United States. Last summer, it unveiled an upgraded space in the same complex:
Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House now has a larger brewery, a visitor’s center, a spacious bar, a sit-down restaurant and a gift shop, and outside, a wide lawn features an alfresco bar and plots where beer ingredients are growing.
As a result, a brewery synonymous with the Emerald Isle has become one of the fastest-growing tourist attractions in the Old-Line State. Diageo, Guinness’s parent company, set a goal of 300,000 visitors in Open Gate’s first year, but it took less than 90 days to notch 100,000. On an average Saturday, the brewery says, it’s not uncommon for 2,500 people to pass through the doors for guided tours, a meal or just to see what’s pouring in the handsome taproom, an area that has couches, tables made from old barrels and a huge central bar topped with illuminated glass bricks.
