Beer Guinness Special Export

The all times favorite beer Guinness special export

In 1944, John Martin, having boldly crossed the Channel, requested that a unique vintage of Guinness be brewed specially for Belgium: Beer Guinness Special Export.

This elixir, 8% alcohol by volume is greeted by the drinker with the smile of an explorer who has discovered black gold. Just as dark but just as creamy too, this stout reveals a fierceness that lives up to the well-known saying, ‘Of all the peoples of Gaul, the Belgians are the bravest’. Unique!


Guinness is inseparably connected to Ireland by 250 years of history. The one exception is this version, also called GXS, which was originally brewed exclusively for John Martin while he developed his business on the European continent.

Of course, the taste characteristics are similar to those of the traditional Irish one, but raised to a higher level: that goes especially for the alcohol content by volume of 8%, giving this beer an explosive taste of roasted malt and smoked wood and liquorice, ending in a very long aftertaste.

Beer Guinness

The story begins in 1759, when Arthur Guinness (1725-1803) acquired the St. James’s Gate site in the center of Dublin for no less than 9,000 years ! Like his namesake King Arthur, he displayed both a visionary outlook and a philanthropic spirit as he set about producing the new beer to which he gave his name.

This particularly creamy beer, dark as rock yet light as the foam on the waves, has gained the allegiance of all descendants of Arthur’s knights. Irish pubs duly honour their valour by serving up the black stuff. They go in quest of the Grail – could it be that they have found it in Guinness?

In the course of 250 years, Guinness has grown and grown, and ten million pints are sold around the world every day. More than just a drink, it has become an institution: a symbol of Ireland, an emblem of St Patrick and the delight of all lovers of beers of character.
