HARTFORD -- Nick Doyle, a Guinness Storehouse beer specialist showed FOX61's Jimmy Altman how to pour a perfect pint of Guinness on his recent trip to St. James’s Gate in Dublin.

The Guinness Storehouse is the centerpiece of the 55-acre Guinness Brewery in the heart of town.

The Storehouse is a seven-story building that showcases the Guinness story — which began in 1759 with Arthur Guinness. Guests learn the history, and of course all facets of the beer-making process--from barley, to hops, to yeast and malt.

“Tourists come here from all over the world,” said Doyle.

You can enjoy a Guinness in your own living room this weekend while watch the Hartford St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday on FOX61 starting at 11:30 a.m. and the Greater New Haven St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday on WCCT starting at 2 p.m.
