Cheers! Guinness to open brewery outside Baltimore
The world’s largest distiller plans to build a Guinness brewery in suburban Baltimore, a project that could bring 70 jobs to the area, Baltimore County officials said Tuesday.
It would be the first Guinness brewery in the United States in more than 60 years.
Officials said the plans represent an investment of $50 million and would create up 40 jobs in brewing, warehousing and packaging. About 30 people could work on the visitor side of the operation, which would be similar to the company’s Open Gate Brewery in Dublin. Diageo, the parent company of Guinness and other well-known alcoholic beverage brands, hopes to begin construction this spring and open in the fall of 2017.
