The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin opened the Guinness Connoisseur Bar Experience to give visitors of legal drinking age the opportunity to learn how to appreciate and taste the most popular Guinness brews. After learning the legacy behind each Guinness variant, visitors participate in an introductory sensory exploration led by a trained Guinness expert who explains how to appropriately examine the beer through sight, taste and smell. Beer aficionados also will learn about pouring rituals and flavor notes through a tutored tasting session of Guinness Draught, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, Guinness Original and Guinness Black Lager varieties. At the end of the experience, visitors will receive a VIP tasting card and exclusive lapel pin that signify their newly acquired knowledge and expertise as a Guinness connoisseur.
