All British Guinness is the same as it all comes from the same brewery.

The perceived taste difference is mostly psychological, but is in some part related to the way it is served, and the actual amount a particular premises sells, Guinness has a specific way that it should be stored and served, not all low volume sellers keep up to standard.

Until recently, (2005), Guinness was brewed in Dublin and the original brewery at Park Royal in London (this is the original location and not Dublin, Arthur Guinness started brewing with a grant from the bishop of london).

The colour and flavour is accidental and derived from an incident where the grain was burnt and as there were limited funds, they were used anyway.

Guinness is not Black, by the way, but Ruby Red, (hold a glass up to a bright light, before you drink it, and prove it for yourself)

At 185 Calories per pint guinness is less fattening than many Light Lager beers

I'm actually a fully qualified Guinness Trainer - so the above information is direct from those in the know and not Wikipedia which is a little confused.

Very interesting info, Nigel. I knew about it being ruby red but not the rest of the history. Does Guinness still employ official tasters or has the brew process been automated to the point tasters are no longer needed?

As far as I know they still use human being to spot test quality, (I also understand that the queue of applicants for this role is very long )

Appreciate the additional info, Nigel. Thank you. Guess there's no point in submitting an application ... I probably won't live long enough for Guinness to act upon it.

There was a tragic accident in the settling vats a few years ago - a taster was drowned when he fell into several hundred gallons of Guinness ...


Strange thing was he got out five times before he finally died, to visit the restroom
