For the first time since 1954, Guinness will have a brewery in the United States.

The Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House is set to open in August near Baltimore, Maryland. 

The reported $80 million development will also include a 270-seat restaurant and a tap room for beer tastings. 

But Guinness says it won't brew its traditional stouts here. Instead, this facility will focus on brewing its Blonde American Lager and new beers on a smaller scale. 

The beer maker reportedly hopes to attract 300,000 visitors to the brewery during the first year. 

Beverage industry analysts say the brewery is also likely a way for Guinness to try to attract millennials and increase brand awareness with a younger audience.
