Guinness to Open Brewery in U.S.

After a 63-year hiatus, Guinness beer will once again be brewed in the United States.

Diageo PLC, which owns the Guinness brand, will expand the historic Calvert Distillery in Baltimore County, Maryland to include a mid-sized brewery as well as a visitors’ center and taproom. Diageo, which calls the facility an American version of the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Dublin, hopes to capitalize on the popularity of beer tourism.

The new brewery will focus on new Guinness beers created for the American market. The iconic Guinness Draught, Guinness Foreign Extra, and Guinness Extra Stouts will still be brewed in Dublin and exported to the United States.

Diageo is hoping to open the brewery this fall to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Guinness exports to the U.S.
