To celebrate International Stout Day, a four day festival of music, food and all things stout is taking place in St. James’s Gate this coming Thursday 7th November – Sunday 10th November.
At the Guinness Storehouse, a lineup of unique beers, food and music experiences is being prepared.
As guests make their way through the Guinness Storehouse, they will be invited to sample Guinness draught as well as new exclusive brews prepared just for the festival.
Guinness Storehouse chefs will also showcase how the malty nature of stout works as an ingredient with complimentary tasters of Guinness-blackened smoked salmon served on seaweed-infused cream cheese and brown bread.
Finally, there will be popup musical performances throughout the festival at the Storehouse.
Meanwhile at the Open Gate Brewery there will be a stout-inspired programme of beers, music and entertainment in the tap room from Thursday to Saturday.
Thursday night will see the festival kick off with a launch evening featuring music by MathMan playing an all-vinyl set as well as the chance to meet guest brewers face-to-face. There will also be tasting sessions and talk from Thursday to Saturday. Finally, the Guinness Open Gate Brewery kitchen will be serving dishes to pair with the stouts on offer.
