Believe it or not this fall marks the 200th anniversary of when the first eight barrels of Guinness made its journey across the Atlantic, from Ireland to America. To toast to this momentous anniversary, Guinness is releasing a commemorative, limited-edition 200th Anniversary Export Stout.

In 1817, Benjamin Guinness—Arthur’s son—brewed the first Guinness beer with a new roasted grain called Black Patent Malt. His stout recipe laid the foundation for how Guinness would brew for the next 200 years. Inspired by a recipe originally developed by Benjamin Guinness and documented brewer diaries dating back to 1817, Guinness 200th Anniversary Export Stout is rich and full-bodied with notes of caramel, toffee and sweet chocolate.

The 200th Anniversary Export Stout is available now in a 6-pack and comes in at 6% ABV for a SRP of $8.99. In addition, the beer will be included in the 200 Years of Stout in America 12-Pack along with Guinness Original, Antwerpen Stout and Foreign Extra Stout, for a limited-time.
