Course details

You probably know it by its distinct colour and the reputation that follows it - that’s right, we’re talking about Guinness!

The penultimate Irish brew, Guinness was first created by Arthur Guinness over 250 years ago in Dublin. From humble beginnings, Guinness is now brewed in almost 50 countries around the world, and available to buy in over 100.

Stephen Kilcullen is a qualified Master Brewer and the Global Head of Quality for the Guinness brand, and he took some time out to fill us in on the journey that Guinness has been on, where it is at today, and how you can incorporate his knowledge and skills into your service and venue.

During these lessons, you will learn about the beer and brand’s history, find out about the six steps to brewing the perfect pint of Guinness, learn about the two step pour, discover a few different types of the classic beer, and learn how to pair such a distinct taste with food. This is the ideal course for those who want to brush up on their knowledge and learn a few unique tips.
