A GUINNESS brewhouse is coming to the UK later this year, in a brand new 50,000 sqft site.

The facility will contain an immersive visitor experience, bars, restaurants, an education centre, a community hub and an all-weather courtyard, and will cost £73million.

Dubbed ‘Guinness at Old Brewer’s Yard’, the Irish beer company is opening the facility in Covent Garden in autumn this year.

Similar to the Dublin Guinness Storehouse attraction, visitors will be able to take tours of the site to learn about the stout and its history from beer experts.

Better still, they will get the chance to try lots of new beers – some of which will be limited edition and only available at the London brewhouse.

There will be an events space in a covered courtyard which will be open for use by the local community as well as a restaurant with a glass roof for diners to come and enjoy.

Visitors will also be able to buy souvenirs at an on-site Guinness store.

Guinness bosses say they are keen to create a new home for the drink and 100 people will be trained on the Learning 4 Life programme every year run by Diageo, Guinness‘ parent company.

The programme teaches business and hospitality skills to those seeking employment in the hospitality industry.

Dayalan Nayager, managing director of Diageo, said: “We’re excited to create a new home for Guinness in the heart of London.

“‘Guinness at Old Brewer’s Yard’ will strengthen London’s hospitality community and be a must-visit destination for thousands of visitors to enjoy.”

At the time of its initial proposal, then Chancellor of the Exchequer, and now Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak added: “This multi-million-pound investment is a crucial vote of confidence in our capital.

“Three hundred years after brewing the first beer in Old Brewers Yard, it’s fantastic to see Guinness breathing life into our hospitality and tourism industries and creating more jobs and training opportunities in central London.”

Guinness say the site will create 150 new jobs at the site, across food, beverage, brewing and events.

The brewery will be another feather in London’s cap, with the capital named the best city in the world earlier this year.

The title was decided by who rank places based on categories they call “the six pillars of place equity”.

They include Place, Product, Programming, People, Prosperity, and Promotion.

The website also said London’s “culinary industry is being reborn” praising its wide variety of restaurants.

It said: “The city with the fourth-best restaurants on the planet is buzzing again with big-name openings like Dubai-based izakaya-style restaurant Kinoya in Harrods.

“There are hundreds of other rooms soon joining this increasingly daring culinary destination serving—and welcoming the world once more.”

Meanwhile, here’s a look at Alton Towers’ new ride which is opening this month.

And this is the UK’s strictest pub, with eight “oppressive” rules.
