Guinness Nigeria

Guinness Nigeria plc is a Nigerian brewery founded in 1962. Guinness and Unilever are the main shareholders, although some of the shares are owned locally.

The main beer is "Foreign Extra Stout" (7.5% ABV). This is now brewed under license from Guinness, using a concentrate sent from Dublin which is dark stout with the water removed. It is then blended with a local pale beer. Nigeria is the third largest and fastest-growing Guinness market in the world. The sweeter taste of this offering is often said to be a result of the sorghum used as a part of the recipe.

Foreign Extra Stout ("Nigerian Guinness") is occasionally available from off-licenses and supermarkets in the UK, particular in Brixton and other parts of south London and is favoured by Africans and Carribeans. The flavour is more intense than that of the conventional stout, and the increased alcoholic strength is also noticeable.Guinness Extra Smooth, a less strong variety which is not as bitter as Foreign Extra Stout and more velveted for the palate, is also produced.
