200 years ago, in 1817, the first shipment of Guinness arrived in the United States and the beer scene was forever changed. What started out as just a few kegs has turned into one of the most popular and well known beers in the country. I mean, it is now, and will forever be, my favorite beer.
To celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Guinness arriving in the United States, Guinness hosted a swanky soiree in downtown LA. And I was invited! With Robbie in tow, we set out to enjoy a night of live music, Guinness nitro ice cream, a full Guinness bar with six of their beers on tap, a Guinness archive featuring old brewing journals, and cool Guinness swag….
But most importantly, Guinness even released a special limited edition 200th anniversary beer, the Export Stout, which is based on a recipe from an 1817 brewing journal entry. Yaaaass.
I am so beyond happy that Guinness was brought into this country 200 years ago and is still here today. I’m not gonna get into the whole story on here, cause this post is just about sharing photos from a super cool party, but the story of Guinness is actually really interesting.

And if you get a chance to try the new Export Stout, do it!! It is ridiculously good, and available for a limited time only.
I LOVE YOU FOREVER, GUINNESS!!! ❤ and thanks for another awesome night!
