Pints

Guinness is a dark beer made using roasted, unmalted barley, hops, water and yeast. But it’s more than just a dark beer. It’s porter. The term was first recorded in the 18th century and is thought to have come from the popularity of dark beer with street and river porters around London who laboured hard for their livings. They were fond of the strongest or “stoutest” dark beer and the breweries soon began marketing “Stout Porter” to this thirsty market segment. Travellers in need of stout porter and sustenance are well cared for at The Yacht Bar on Clontarf Road in Dublin.
