"The history of GUINNESS Foreign Extra Stout involves a long brewing tradition of crafting great GUINNESS beer as well as the rich history of Guinness global exports. GUINNESS Foreign Extra Stout dates back to 1801, when it was first brewed at St. James’s Gate brewery in Dublin. Originally known as West India Porter, it was developed to enable GUINNESS to be shipped around the world. In order to accomplish this, it was brewed with extra hops, giving the beer a more intense flavor. The extra hops also acts as a natural preservative for beer, allowing it to survive long journeys overseas. GUINNESS Foreign Extra Stout made its debut in the U.S. in 1817. Export to the U.S. was discontinued during prohibition and the variant is now making its return to the market." -- Beernews.org
