Guinness Open Gate Brewery

Located at the site of the first Maryland distillery opened after The Prohibition, enjoy the taste of this Irish beer at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery. The tap room and experimental brewery is open to the public for beer tasting events, workshops, and general service. Book a tour to learn more about the history of beer making at the original brewery in Ireland and take a guided tour with an optional tasting to learn about Guinness heritage from an insider.
