The Guinness Open Gate Brewery is Back – Dublin 8’s Experimental Tap Room Reopens with a Fresh New Look and Beer Menu located at St. James’s Gate. This vibrant experimental taproom is a space dedicated to innovation and reinvention, with limited-edition small-batch beers brewed on-site and a new casual dining menu, crammed with local flavour.

Reopened to the public on Thursday May 23rd following a complete refurbishment, the new-look Guinness Open Gate Brewery is home to a massively upgraded outdoor area with lots of space to enjoy a pint and great food with friends on a summers day. The inside space has also had an exciting update with a whole new fit-out and a window into the live brewing process which happens on the premises, bringing guests closer to the action.

The limited-edition, seasonal beer menu will change regularly throughout the year. The small-batch brews come directly from the on-site brewery and can’t be found anywhere else. Some of the first brews on tap will be the Crane St. Pale Ale, a Watermelon Spritz and an Irish Whiskey flavoured Stout. Of course, fans of the classics needn’t fear, there will also be a range of Guinness beers available on tap as well as spirits, soft drinks and non-alcoholic options.

There will also be a Tasting Paddle available, with a selection of delicious pints on offer to choose from. Enjoy alongside spicy wings, fresh baked pretzels, scampi and many more perfect pint accompaniments from the in-house food menu.

The live brewery is visible behind glass panelling, where you can sit back with a glass in hand and feel truly immersed the Open Gate Brewery brewing process like never before. Located on the site of St. James’s Gate, here you can see the Guinness brewers at their most innovative and experimental, given the opportunity to create truly unique and fun brews – the Guinness Open Gate brewers are given the creative license to dream in beer! A constantly changing beer roster means you will always be greeted by something new on their taps.

Outdoors is a big and bright beer garden, perfect for those sunny summer evenings where you can relax in the last rays of the day. Enjoy the murals both inside and outside the beer gardens walls, created by Holly Pereira, a long-time collaborator of the Open Gate Brewery.

Perfect for meeting up with friends after work in the sunny beer garden or trying out new experimental beers on the weekend, the Guinness Open Gate Brewery’s reopening kicks off the summer in Dublin 8. The Brewery is open Thursday to Saturday, 1pm to 9pm.
