On a tour of the brewery, I learn about the four ingredients plus one that are combined in a secret formula to make Guinness famous. Imported Barley and Hops, Water from the surrounding Wicklow Mountains and A National Treasure, Sir Arthur's Yeast which is stored in a vault here, give us the Irish stout that is enjoyed around the world.
