Located in Baltimore County on the grounds of the historic Calvert Distillery, Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House will be the first Guinness brewery stateside since the 1950s. Visitors will be able to tour the working 10 barrel brewery, sample experimental beers brewed on-site at the taproom, eat delicious food in the restaurant, and purchase exclusive Guinness merchandise. The new Baltimore experience will be thematically modeled after the existing Guinness experience at St. James’s Gate in Dublin, Ireland, with a uniquely Maryland twist.
A Test Taproom, open to the public Thursday and Friday 3-8pm, Saturday 11am-8pm, and Sunday 11am-5pm, opened on the site in October 2017, with the full brewery experience planned to open Summer 2018.
