Saint Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. The Irish people are passionate, proud, and some would say, a bit stubborn. I’m grateful to have Irish blood flowing through my veins.
But everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Pat’s. Spring is in the air, the Earth is getting greener and it’s a great time to celebrate with friends. But, please, friends don’t let friends drink green beer. Pass on the green Bud Light and even the Guinness and give one of these beers a try.
- Schlafly Irish-Style Extra Stout
- Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout
- Yazoo Onward Stout
- North Coast Old #38 Stout
- Deschutes Obsidian Stout
- Karl Strauss Red Trolley Ale
- Great Lakes Conway’s Irish Ale
- Alpine Beer Company McIlhenney’s Irish Red
- Harpoon Celtic Red
- 3 Floyds Brian Boru Old Irish Red
And as much as I love beer, don’t forget about Ireland’s fine Whiskey. Have a shot of Jameson or Bushmills while you’re celebrating. But be careful, don’t over do it. Remember, God created whiskey to keep the Irish from ruling the world!
