It was a great informative experience, teaching you about the history of Guinness as well as some of it's products. Topped off with teaching you how to properly pour your own Guinness pint, a must for any fan of the stout.
The best way to experience this venue.

The Guinness Connoisseur Tasting Experience was excellent! The tour was informative and very fun. Our family of four really enjoyed the tastings and learning how to pour a pint of Guinness. The Guinness Storehouse is also really interesting and a fun venue to spend time in.
