With origins in an 1801 entry in Guinness’ brewers’ diaries, today’s Guinness West Indies Porter was inspired by the first beer purposely brewed at St. James’s Gate to sustain its freshness, wherever it was shipped. The beer is complex yet mellow, hoppy with notes of toffee and chocolate.

Quality has always been in Guinness’ DNA, even back in the 1800s when faced with the challenge of how to maintain the freshness of our beer, on long sea voyages. To guarantee the best quality upon arrival, Guinness brewers made a porter with more hops.

The recipe was a success and was soon shipped far and wide to countries in the Caribbean, America, Africa and South East Asia, and its ancestor, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is still sold there today.

A deep rich and characterful porter with hints of toffee and chocolate.
