Guinness is selling a fusion beer that combines advanced European brewing techniques with quality American hops. Although Guinness is known for its signature stout, this blonde lager offers a different kind of drinking experience.
The new Guinness Blonde American Lager is part of a collaboration between the Guinness Master Brewers in Ireland and their American US Master Brewer counterparts. The fusion beer is made using traditional European brewing techniques and high-quality American ingredients. The beer is brewed at the Latrobe Brewery in Pennsylvania, which is also the home of Rolling Rock Pale Lager. The result of this unique collaboration is a light and flavorful beer that is similar to the American pale lager's of the 1930s.
The new Guinness Blonde American Lager demonstrates that the iconic brewing company is beginning to experiment with new beer varieties.
