The Archives


The Guinness® Archive collects, preserves and makes accessible records and artefacts from the formation of the company in 1759 to the present day. The Archive is a treasure chest of Guinness history, used by Guinness marketing communities around the world, economic and brewing historians, collectors, family history researchers and anyone with an interest in the Guinness Company and brand.

The Guinness® Archive was formally established in 1998 when the company employed its first professional archivist to curate the company’s history.

The Guinness Storehouse Archives are by appointment only and open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
