Did you know that? Guinness doesn’t just make its own beer. It offers many variations and is expanding its products more and more! The Guinness Hop House 13 Lager is proof of this: it is a beer brewed by the group, but it is still significantly different from the traditional pint of Irish Guinness! A drink that aims to conquer a new market… and to diversify among regulars!
In Dublin, Guinness has many buildings dedicated to the brewing of its beer. And there is one in particular, called “Hop House 13″… which is one of the nuggets of the group! Built at the beginning of the 20th century, this establishment was used from the very beginning to store countless varieties of hops. Rare varieties, with marked tastes and particularly different from one another. This laboratory allowed Guinness brewers to try out the most unexpected combinations!
And it was here, in this building, that the beer of the same name was born: the Hop House 13 lager! An innovative beer that combines tradition and modernity.
In terms of ingredients, Hop House 13 Lager is a beer brewed on a base of hops of Irish, Australian and American origin (galaxy, topaz and mozaïc). To this is added malted barley as well as yeast from the Guinness beer strain… and of course, the inimitable art and know-how of the brewery!
And the result is there! The result is a soft, frothy beer with a rather assertive temperament. The whole is fruity and richly hoppy. It tastes at 5°. We can detect orange and grapefruit: citrus fruits which bring an ultra refreshing side to the beverage. Pronounced notes, rich in taste and character.
This Guinness stamped beer is available in Ireland (notably at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin), but also in other Anglo-Saxon countries: the United States and Australia in the lead. It must be said that this beer is reinventing traditional lagers in its own way, and is taking advantage of this to establish itself in markets where everything remains to be done.
It should be noted that it is still possible to buy it, rather in 50cl bottles. It is recognizable by its label, far from the usual Guinness design. Black and red letters on a white background, with the signature of Arthur Guinness appear on each bottle. Impossible to miss.Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health. Consume in moderation.
