First Guinness Brewery in the US Opens in August
The first Guinness brewery in the United States is set to open later this summer in Maryland. Guinness says the brewery will be its first on American soil in over 63 years. The company briefly ran a brewery in New York from 1949 to 1954.
The Baltimore Sun reports the revived historic building in Relay, Maryland, will open Aug. 3. for tours, taproom tastings and dining in its restaurant.
Ryan Wagner, a brand ambassador for the beer-maker, says the goal is to attract 300,000 visitors in the first year. In addition, the brewery's marketing manager says the $80 million project will create approximately 200 hospitality jobs.
Looks like we will have to rethink our summer vacation plans.
