The new brewery will be the first Guinness presence on US soil since 1954, and the first ever purpose-built Guinness brewery in American history. The brewery is an estimated $80MM investment by Diageo Beer Company USA which will generate approximately 160 new jobs. The new brewery will not brew iconic Guinness stouts! These beers will continue to be brewed in Dublin, Ireland and imported for sale across the USA.
The site for the new brewery is the historic Calvert distillery, over 60 acres of functioning and brownfield facilities just southwest of downtown Baltimore in Baltimore County. The site has played an integral role in the local Maryland economy and community since 1933, and everyone at Diageo Beer Company USA is excited to continue and build upon this legacy. Aside from making world-class, top quality beer and hosting curious visitors, a big aim of this project is to help develop and grow the local economy and enrich the local community.
