Guinness Open Gate Brewery’s Head Brewer, Peter Simpson commented, “At the Guinness Open Gate we love beer, it’s our thing, but we also really love food! GUINNESS X MEATOPIA gives us an amazing opportunity to collaborate and create new beers with some of the world’s best live fire chefs. This year there is going to be some sensational beer and food pairings and definitely some surprises!”

Signature dishes grilled or smoked over sustainable wood and charcoal, will be created at GUINNESS X MEATOPIA by some of the world’s best live fire chefs and will be matched to the beers brewed especially for the culinary feast. Bringing out the best of the flavours and tastes on offer, Guinness Draught and the exciting beers from the Open Gate Brewery will also find themselves paired with some of these never been tasted before dishes.
