The company, which announced its intention to update the site at St James's Gate in the Irish capital back in 2012, opened 'Brewhouse No. 4' this morning. The facility – billed as “the largest stout brewery in the world” - has cost Diageo EUR169m (US$218m) and is 10,000m² in size.

It is the fourth brewery to have been located on the plot at St James's Gate.

The move marks the completion of the company's plans, announced six years ago, to consolidate its brewing footprint in Ireland. The economic downturn prompted Diageo to put its proposals on hold in 2009.

“Two hundred and fifty-five years ago, when Arthur Guinness signed the 9,000-year lease at St James's Gate he did so to secure the future of Guinness,” said Paul Armstrong, Diageo's supply director for brewing. “Today, with this progressive brewery, we are securing the future of brewing in Ireland. I am very proud that … St James’s Gate will continue to be the home of brewing innovation for Diageo long into the future.”

Brewhouse No 4 was opened by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, with Diageo's CEO, Ivan Menezes, in attendance.
