Arthur Guinness Son & Co., a subsidiary of Diageo, is an Irish brewery which was founded in 1756.

Products

The company produces a dark stout beer, known widely as Guinness, brewed at St. James's Gate Brewery, Dublin, Ireland since 1759. The word "stout" was not attached to the beer until the 1820's.

Guinness is available in a number of varieties and strengths, which include:

  • Guinness Draught Stout, sold in kegs;
  • Bottled Guinness, which includes a patented "rocket widget" to simulate the draught taste.
  • Canned Guinness, which includes a widget to simulate draught Guinness;
  • Guinness Extra Stout, a bottled stout of higher gravity and strength than draught Guinness, for a longer shelf life;
  • Guinness Tropical Stout, an even stronger stout produced to keep in warm climates;
  • Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, sold in West Africa;
  • Malta Guinness, a non-alcoholic sweet drink, sold in West Africa.

The Guinnes beer is also brewed under license internationally, however the resulting beer is, from all reports, significantly different.

The Guinness brewery also makes other brands of alcoholic drink, including Harp Lager and Smithwicks (sold as "Kilkenny" outside of Ireland). The company has a regional franchise to produce Budweiser beer.

The most famous brewery outside of Ireland is in Park Royal, London. That brewery will be closing in 2005, and thereafter all Guinness in the UK will be brewed in Dublin.

Nigeria is the third largest and fastest-growing Guinness market in the world.
