Of course when one travels to Ireland for the first time it’s almost a given/requirement to visit the Guinness factory. While planning the visit, I luckily received tips to purchase tickets in advance to avoid long lines once arriving.
Unlike most brewery tours it was self-guided and you could read through everything and go at your own pace. You get all information from history to brewing process to marketing and more.
With the tour you received a (free) pint of the stout. Now, one could go to the 6th floor of the building and have it poured for them, or you could stop by the 4th floor and learn how to pour it properly. Hello, that’s a given! So much fun to pour your own brew.
Very fun part of Dublin, Ireland. Cheers!
