Guinness kept this secret brewery closed to the public for a century

Last year alone, almost 1.5 million people visited the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, but only a fraction of them – mostly local beer enthusiasts and a few in-the-know travelers – entered the iconic brewery’s secret experimental brewpub within Guinness’ sprawling headquarters at St. James Gate.

With minimal signage, limited hours and pre-purchased tickets required for admission, Open Gate is a haven for ardent fans who wish to taste exclusive small-batch beers created by Guinness brewers.
