Guinness Rye Pale was one of the first experimental beers to go on tap at The Open Gate Brewery. The experimental brewery, which opened in November 2015 at St. James’s Gate, saw the beer become a favourite and after almost a year, Guinness Rye Pale Ale will now be produced on a larger scale, in off-licences and retailers across Ireland and the UK.
“At The Open Gate Brewery we are given free rein to regularly explore and create new beers in small batches. There is huge interest in beer nowadays so it’s exciting to open the doors to the public, give people a look inside our world, and of course share some batches of experimental beers that we are working on”, said Peter Simpson, Lead Brewer from The Open Gate Brewery.
Nick Curtis-Davis, Head of Guinness Innovation for Europe, comments: “With premium bottled ale booming, we’re looking forward to introducing a delicious new beer into the sector with the launch of Guinness Rye Pale Ale. We see this as a great opportunity to further open up the category to new consumers, whilst also providing the opportunity for retailers to tap into the 257 years of brewing heritage of the Guinness brand”.
Guinness Rye Pale Ale (ABV of 5%) comes in 500 ml bottles at a price of €3.09/£1.99. It will be sold in cases of eight.
