Harp Lager is an Irish lager created in 1960 by Guinness in its Great Northern Brewery, Dundalk. It is a minor lager brand in Ireland. Harp, the best selling Irish lager, with its sparkling colour makes it a distinctive, yet approachable import.
Harp Lager has turned to professional golfer Graeme McDowell to assist in promoting the Irish lager here in the United States. A fan of beer, McDowell hails from Northern Ireland and competes in golf on the PGA Tour and European Tour where he proudly won the 2010 U.S. Open. In all McDowell has won 13 professional tournaments throughout the world and has played on four European Ryder Cup teams.
Top markets: Nigeria, Ireland, Australia, Canada, Africa, United States
Fact: Harp is the largest growing lager in Nigeria.
Guinness Storehouse located in the heart of the St. James’s Gate Brewery, the Guinness Storehouse is Ireland’s most popular tourist attraction. It’s the home of the Black Stuff, the heart of Dublin and an unforgettable start to your Irish adventure.
The journey begins at the bottom of the world’s largest pint glass and continues up through seven floors filled with interactive experiences that fuse our long brewing heritage with Ireland’s rich history. At the top, you’ll be rewarded with a pint of perfection in our world-famous rooftop Gravity Bar. Now that’s our kind of higher education.
It takes bold brewers to brew bold beers. Those prepared to go to lengths that others wouldn’t to perfect their craft. In 1759, Arthur Guinness took out a 9000-year lease on a brewery; our brewers then brought you the blackest beer with the most colorful flavor, and braved the perils of the high seas to transport it across the globe. The pioneering methods of our predecessors have been handed down and tirelessly advanced from generation to generation and they never stop evolving. Which is just as well, as we’ve got a whole lot more beer to brew.
It takes adventurous spirit and irrepressible ingenuity to do things the Guinness way. From our humble beginnings in 1759 to the present day, we’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to bring you exceptional beer. But, while many milestones mark the way on our long and illustrious path, we’re not ones to rest on our laurels. As we like to put it: our greatest work is yet to come.
