The Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House is on the site of the historic Calvert distillery in Baltimore County, 10 miles from downtown Baltimore and 30 miles northeast of Washington DC.

The distillery, originally called the Maryland Distilling Company, was the first opened after prohibition in Maryland, in 1933. For decades it distilled, barrel-aged and bottled several spirits brands, notably the Lord Calvert Whisky brand. In 2001 the site was acquired by Diageo as part of the purchase of Seagram, and spirits aging and bottling continued at scale until 2015 (and actually continues to this day as a live production site).

The site itself is almost 62 acres and is adjacent to Route 1, is minutes from the I-95, 195 and 895 freeways, and is 4 miles from BWI International Airport. It has a long history, integral to the local area, just off the Civil War trail and even has a protected pre-Civil War graveyard on its grounds.
The new brewery will be the first Guinness presence on US soil since 1954, and the first ever purpose-built Guinness brewery in American history.

The brewery is an estimated $80MM investment by Diageo Beer Company USA which will generate approximately 160 new jobs.
