By Publications Checkout

Diageo Beer Company USA is to build a Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Maryland next October, marking the first time Guinness has been brewed in America since 1954.

However, the company's flagship beer Guinness stout will still be brewed at St James Gate Brewery in Dublin, with the new premises being "home for new Guinness beers created for the US market, including Guinness Blonde American Lager, as well as creations by the brewers here,” said Alix Dunn, a Diageo spokesperson.

The site was once home to Calvert Distillery and is currently being used to age and store Captain Morgan rum, reports The Washington Post. Upon completion, it will have a Guinness visitor experience, a full tasting room with experimental brews and a retail store.
