The history of Diageo begins in the 18th and 19th centuries with the creation of some of their most valuable and well-recognized spirit brands. The story races through the 20th Century noted for expansion, innovation and diversification, before entering the 21st Century as the business we know today, offering the world's greatest selection of premium drinks. Diageo was created from the merger of Guinness and Grandmet in 1997.


GUINNESS DRAUGHT

ABV: 4.2%

Diageo

Brewed since 1759 in Dublin, Ireland, Draught Guinness is an experience for the senses. “First drunk with the eyes,” its ruby-black color and unique mocha-espresso taste are incomparable. Guinness is the best selling stout in the United States and around the world. Drinkers of this brand are very loyal and margins are high. It is black, beautiful, light in body and mildly bitter with an almost roasted-chocolaty elegance, it stays smoothly balanced in texture and taste with food. Romance this Irish brew by serving it with hearty stew, roast beef, shellfish-particularly oysters, corned beef, smoked salmon, caviar and even chocolate. The bitterness of the roasted barley cuts through right to the full flavor.



GUINNESS extra stout

ABV: 6%

Diageo

A stout of a deeper color fortified with 6 percent alcohol, Extra Stout’s rich, brown, toasted bouquet would be a fitting companion to a burger topped with green chilies. This “sturdy” brew is traditionally used to create the classic “Black and Tan.” Great with heavier meats: corned beef, duck, roast beef. Beautiful with a grilled Reuben. Classic with chocolate desserts.



Guinness Foreign Extra Stout

ABV: 7.5%

Diageo

Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is a unique liquid with a strong heritage. Its history dates back to the early 1800s, when the beer was referred to as ‘West India Porter’.   Like the brewery's signature beer, Foreign Extra Stout pours a nearly impenetrable body, with a ruby red tint. Full-bodied with lots of flavor, a robust bitterness and creamy texture, this beer pairs perfectly with smoked meats, chocolate and desserts.



Guinness Black Lager

ABV: 4.5%

Diageo

A unique combination of brewing techniques is what makes this lager like no other. Brewed using two different varieties of hops (Saaz and Cascade) and a proprietary Guinness lager yeast, Black Lager offers a new, refreshing taste profile. After maturation, the beer is cold filtered at sub-zero degrees, following traditional lager brewing methods. However, it is formulated using Guinness’ signature dark roasted malt, ensuring the flavor and character consumers expect. Dark brown in color with a slightly tan head, this is a malty brew with roasted coffee and chocolate notes. The aftertaste dries out slowly and lingers with a delicate hop bitterness and subtle roastiness in the background. Clean and slightly sweet, Black Lager is medium-light in body with moderate carbonation, making it a smooth, easy drinking beer; a lager worthy of the name Guinness.


Guinness Red Harvest Stout

ABV: 4.1%

Diageo

Guinness’ Celtic link to Halloween is sure to capture the imagination of better beer drinkers both in story and taste. SAMHAIN (saw-wen), an ancient Celtic festival held every year on All Hallows’ Eve, celebrates the end of fall harvest and the coming of winter. On this night, the living beckons restless spirits from the darkness with bonfires and sweet offerings from the bountiful harvest. Guinness Red Harvest Stout captures the spirit of that night with its alluring blend of lightly roasted barley and subtly sweet Irish malt. Red Harvest Stout pays tribute to Guinness’ brewing tradition with its mildly sweet, velvety taste and deep red hue.



HARP PREMIUM LAGER

ABV: 4.5%

Diageo

Harp has a new look and a new recipe! The new liquid delivers a more refreshing taste and is less bitter. This genuine Irish recipe, developed by the brewers of Guinness, is clean with a sweet nose and a good body. The hops deliver a subtle citrus taste and floral aroma.



SMITHWICK’S

ABV: 5%

Diageo

Luck is coming! This chestnut colored, amber ale is brewed in Ireland. You’ll be drawn to this ale’s creamy head and soft subtle sweetness that ends with a hint of toffee dryness in the finish. It is malt balanced and a bit buttery—deliciously easy drinking. Smithwick’s is ideal to drink with fine cuts of meat such as lamb or game. Of course Smithwick’s sweet, buttery notes and its ale fruitiness make it a good accompaniment to traditional Irish dishes featuring pork, cabbage, kale and potatoes. It’s a Halloween treat with colcannon!



RED STRIPE

ABV: 4.9%

Diageo

Red Stripe Lager captures the very heart and soul of Jamaica. As you might expect, this Caribbean brew boasts an extremely refreshing taste, balancing malty-sweet and lightly hoppy flavors. The result is a lager that’s crisp, clean and easy to drink, a taste quality that enhances the enjoyment of all hot and spicy fare. This is James Bond’s beer-a cool drinking lager with a little something extra. Capture the full flavor by pairing it with spicy shrimp or mussels, sushi, grilled fish or pasta.


Red Stripe Light

ABV: 3.6%

Diageo

Red Stripe Lager is loved by consumers everywhere and its sales are on the up and up! Red Stripe drinkers are those who think for themselves, love the stubby bottle and are willing to shell out a few extra bucks to enjoy the delicious Jamaican lager taste. For those who love light beer for easy drinking occasions, Red Stripe Light is a perfect low-calorie refreshment.




KALIBER

ABV: 0.5%

Diageo

A fully brewed non-alcoholic lager, Kaliber is made with pure Irish spring water, classic Irish barley, and the finest hops. Lager yeast is used to give the beer its full-bodied flavor, and then the alcohol is removed. Full bodied with well-balanced tones of hops and malt, Kaliber is the smart choice for the enjoyment of a great tasting beer when alcohol is not desired. This European take on non-alcoholic beers is maltier then most American NA’s. Best enjoyed with lighter foods or snacks.
