Is Guiness made in Australia?

“Guinness Down Under” the story of how the iconic brew and the family came to Australia and New Zealand in the mid-1800s. Guinness is a name instantly recognised the world over – the famous stout has been brewed at St James's Gate in Dublin for over 250 years, and is now brewed under contract in fifty countries.

Why Does Guinness taste different in Australia?

It's brewed differently (under licence) in Australia. Basically they brew a light ale with a lager yeast and then add a stout flavour concentrate. Sounds bad, but it's a good drop. In Ireland they brew using different malts.
