Guinness plans to start pouring beers at its new brewery in Relay next month, even as construction continues on its full Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House. A small-batch brewing system is ready to start brewing beer and a temporary taproom is being built in an old warehouse at the southwest Baltimore County property where whiskey and other spirits were distilled for more than 80 years. “It’s a great way to get things started,” said Andrew Beebe, head of the Open Gate Brewery for international liquor conglomerate Diageo, the parent company of Guinness. “There are a lot of people who are quite excited.” The opening date isn’t set yet, but Diageo officials are hoping to get the test taproom up and running in October. The 200th anniversary of the first import of Guinness Stout to America is Oct. 16. The test taproom will be a small start to what’s expected to become the largest tourist destination in Baltimore County. Diageo plans to spend $50 million on renovations and is promising 70 permanent jobs: 40 in production and 30 in hospitality. The company has predicted the brewery will attract 250,000 visitors in its first full year.
