In 1759, the Irish brewer Arthur Guinness signed a lease for an abandoned brewery at St James ' Gate in Dublin. The annual rent was 45 pounds, and the lease term was 9,000 years. 

At first, only ale was brewed, the business brought a good income. The first batch of Irish beer was exported to England 10 years after the signing of the contract. In 1799, after noticing that Dublin porters preferred a pint of dark beer to ale, Guinness decided to refocus production. The variety got its name thanks to the people for whom it was brewed — porter (from the English word "porter" - loader). A few years later, Arthur Guinness ' porter became a world-famous stout.

At the turn of the XIX-XX centuries, the company began to hire scientists who developed new brewing technologies. The chemist Alexander Forbes-Watson founded a research laboratory in St. James ' Gate, which was soon followed by an experimental brewery. 

In August 1953, a Picture Post photographer was able to get into the holy of holies of all beer lovers. At that time, the Guinness brewery was considered the largest in the world, producing 80% of the total volume of hoppy drinks in the country. These photos show a sacred process in which water, malt, barley, hops and yeast were crushed, mixed, boiled, fermented and filled with barrels branded with the canonical Irish drink.
