Those seven floors surround a glass atrium that is shaped in the form of a pint of Guinness.The tour in Guinness Storehouse will take you through the ground floor that introduces the four ingredients of the beer, which are water, barley, hops, and yeast and it will also introduce you to the founder of Guinness brewery, Arthur Guinness.
