Guinness Open Gate
Brewery & Barrel House

Can’t make it to Ireland anytime soon? No problem. Grab a pint and learn about the iconic draught stout, plus new innovative brews, at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery, a sister location to Dublin’s original brewery and the only Guinness brewery in America. Located on the site of the historic Calvert distillery in Baltimore County, 10 miles from downtown Baltimore, Open Gate offers guided tours with beer experts and optional tastings. The brewery also offers a taproom with a generous selection of finger foods and their 1817 Restaurant, which celebrates Chesapeake Bay seafood and classic Irish pub dishes.

Admission Info

You can drop by the brewery to visit, drink, and eat, but you’ll need to purchase tickets to go on a tour. Pre-booking is always a good idea, but drop-ins are welcome, depending on availability.

First-come, first-serve on-site parking is available. If your entire crew will be drinking, consider taking public transportation. The MARC and Amtrak train stations are just a Lyft ride away from the brewery, and the MTA City Yellow bus line stops just outside their front doors.
