Guinness have launched a new craft beer at St. James' Gate today. The new brew is called Hop House 13 Lager, and is named after an early 1900's hop store building at St. James's Gate where hops are still stored nowadays. The new lager is the third product from The Brewers Project, alongside Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter, both of which were reinterpretations of original recipes from the ancient brewers' diaries of St. James's Gate.
Head of Innovation for Guinness, Nick Curtis-Davis had this to say at the launch "We have a lot more beer to make. We are only 256 years into a 9000 year lease at St. James's Gate Brewery and Irish drinkers can look forward to the introduction of more new and interesting beers from The Brewers Project at St. James's Gate in the future." With 8,744 more years to go we're excited to see what else they might have up their sleeves!
With craft beers being so popular at the moment, it's great to see so many Dublin-based breweries adding their products to the market. Hop House 13 Lager is available on draught at selected pubs across Ireland, and we're certainly looking forward to having a pint over the coming days.
