Guinness 1759

Guinness master brewers have created this small batch amber ale that is steeped in tradition and crafted from a 200-year-old recipe. Brewed with peated whiskey malt, just like those used in the world’s finest whiskies, The 1759 delivers an intriguing richly flavored beer bursting with character and depth. One sip and you will discover its rich caramel taste with distinctive notes of warming butterscotch combined with more subtle hop character and a delicate fruity sweetness.

The first in the Guinness Signature Series, The 1759 is available strictly as a limited edition. Each 25.4 fl. oz. bottle is packaged in an elegant black velvet box, making it the perfect gift for the most discerning of beer aficionados.

Enjoy a piece of Guinness brewing history, before it’s gone forever.
