Guinness, a Dublin-based brand, will roll out two beers Guinness Dublin Porter and Guinness West Indies Porter – in the US.

These drinks are brewed with recipes from brewing books that date back to 200 years.

The two beers, developed by the Brewers Project, were the brainchild of a small group of Guinness brewers in Dublin.

Guinness North America brand director Emma Giles said: "Each beer in this collection is telling part of the Guinness story, not just our beer but our people who made it, capturing the enterprising spirit and credible talent of our brewers then and now.

"This is the first time the Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter will be available in the US since their original incarnations more than 200 years ago.

"It’s a great example of what our brewers are capable of and shows how passionate they are about pushing boundaries and bringing quality brews to today’s beer lovers to enjoy responsibly."

The two porters were earlier available only in the UK and Ireland.

Each brew has with a label that has drawn inspiration from the original bottle designs.

Originally, the Guinness Dublin Porter was created in 1796 when the firm brewed its own Irish version of porter at St. James’s Gate and later transported it to England. The Irish brew was earthy in flavour.

Dublin Porter comes with 3.8% ABV and has a sweet, smooth texture with malt caramel flavour and hoppy aroma along with a burnt biscuit finish.

The Guinness West Indies Porter, comes with 6% ABV. It was crafted to maintain freshness and quality while being transported onboard of ships to West Indies, on one month journey.

This brew was developed in 1801.

Beginning this month, the Guinness Dublin Porter and West Indies Porter will be available at Costco, Sam’s, BJ’s, and Total Wine & More outlets at a suggested retail price of $21.99.
