1837 is a long time ago, but that is how long Guinness has had an enchanting association
with food. Over this time Chefs and food fans alike all over the world have used the Guinness variants to develop recipes, and the association has strengthened and evolved into a superb food experience, bringing with it countless occasions where Guinness has become the essential cooking ingredient.
With three Guinness variants, all equal in quality, but each with its own flavour, each dish you cook will be better than next. You will be amazed at the many wonderful meals just waiting to be enjoyed.
Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is the oldest variant of Guinness available. Guinness Foreign Extra Stout has been traditionally made with extra hops to preserve freshness, the extra hops result in floral overtones throughout the beer, making it the perfect cooking ingredient for Chicken, or this Beef & Guinness Stew.
Guinness Extra Stout is a complex beer full of character. The dry roasted bitterness creates
an appetizing contrast with the salty, smoky flavour of seafood. The distinctive roasted bitterness comes in to its own with this Irish Smoked Salmon on Guinness Bread.
Guinness Draught may surprise many with its hint of caramel sweetness and coffee tones. It is these wonderful flavours that make Guinness Draught the ideal ingredient for rich, dark desserts, like our popular after dinner treat, Guinness Chocolate Mousse.
