Guinness has announced the launch of a new lager designed to compete with Ireland’s continuously expanding craft beer market.

Hop House 13 is the latest addition to Guinness’ Brewer’s Project which is focused on manipulating and interpreting old recipes and transforming them as viable products for lovers of craft beer in Ireland.

The first stage of the Brewer's Project involved the launch of two beers West Indies and Dublin Porter last September.

Head of Innovation at Guinness Nick Curtis Davis said: “People are interested in beer again and there’s never been a more exciting time to be in beer. The craft beer revolution has washed up on Irish shores and with the launch of Hop House 13 Guinness is proud to be part of this revolution.”

The new offering is brewed using Guinness yeast, Irish barley and hops from Australia and USA and is said to boast hints of apricot and peach with biscuity malt flavours.

Craft brewer Peter Simpson who lead the development of the latest lager said his motive was to create a lager he actually enjoyed.

“I personally enjoy more flavoursome beers so I wanted to make a lager with lots of character and flavour which is represented in Hop House 13,” he said.

Guinness’ new lager is available on draught in select pubs from this afternoon.
