MEI Cultural Spotlight – The Guinness Storehouse

January 28, 2016

MEI Cultural Spotlight #2 (2) 

Located in the legendary St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, The Guinness Storehouse has been home to the Guinness Brewery since 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a lease for 9,000 years. Built in the Chicago Style of Architecture, the building was the first multi-storey steel-framed building to be constructed in Ireland.

Upon your visit, you’ll make your way through the impressive storehouse, discover the age-old art of brewing that gives Guinness its distinctive taste and texture, visit the Tasting rooms, step into the wonderful world of Guinness Advertising and learn to pull the perfect pint (FYI, a ‘perfect’ pour of Guinness should take 199.5 seconds at a 45 degree angle).

The highlight for many is the Gravity Bar that’s located on the 7th floor, which offers incredible panoramic views of the capital.
