St. James’ Gate in Dublin, Ireland, became the home of Guinness in 1759 when Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000 year lease for £45 per year. By 1838 St. James’ Gate became the largest brewery in Ireland and by 1914 the Dublin brewery was the largest in the world. Guinness remains the largest brewer of stout in the world. Covering 64 acres, the Guinness brewery had its own power plant, extensive railroad system and ship docks. Up until the early 20th century, the brewery owned most of the offices and many houses for employees in the surrounding area.
