St. Patty's Day Brews

It's late, I'm tired, but I feel the need to pay respect to the upcoming holiday that is all sbout the consumption of alcohol, and in particular, delicious Irish brews. No matter what religion you are, who doesn't love going out to put a few (or more) down for ol' Pat.

Hmm...What to drink? There is always the green beer, god knows what it actually is half the time. I think its supposed to be an Irish amber or red ale. And of course, we cannot forget the Irish whiskey, which truly holds a special place in my heart...and belly. But if you feel like venturing off the beaten but beautiful Guinness path, here are some other brews that Pat would approve.

  • O'Hara's Celtic Stout

  • Smithwick's Irish Red Ale

  • Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale

  • Caffrey's Irish Ale (please indulge me if you find)

  • Harp

  • Wexford Irish Cream Ale (brewed in England but so good it deserves a spot)

So go forth this weekend and enjoy the drunken (should be) holiday that is St. Patrick's Day.
