Last year two new Guinness porters, Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter, were created in a microbrewery at St James’s Gate. The microbrewery is situated within the Guinness site, and now a planning application has been lodged for the development at the microbrewery building. The proposal is situated to the south of James’ Gate and bounded by St. James’s Church to the west, and James’s Street to the north.
The changes are to be made to the upper ground floor level of the microbrewery – the home of the present tasting area that covers 225 sq.m. This will become a public bar area. Outside bicycle spaces for visitors entering a brand new public entrance from St. James’s Street are planned. The bar will be open two days a week for visitors to experience the microbrewery and the secrets within.
This is an exciting development for tourists and beer lovers. Make sure to keep an eye on the site for any updates on this top secret project!
