Beer Meets Bioretention Soil at the New Guinness Headquarters


It’s a good day for bioretention soil at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House.

What’s going on in Baltimore?

It’s pouring.  It’s pouring beer – Guinness welcomed the community into its newly opened 62-acre, $90-million brewpub.  It’s pouring people: 1,000 guests entered within the first hour of business.  It’s pouring water: Baltimore gets an average of 40 inches of rain per year.

What are the benefits of bioretention soil to a brewpub?

While pouring smooth stouts might be a specialty of Guinness, this place also wants to slow the flow of stormwater into adjacent waterways – and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay. They did so with Harvest’s bioretention soil media.

When can I visit?

The Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House is open to the public from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 9 p.m. on weekends. Check out the landscaping as you play corn hole or simply enjoy your pint.
