St. Patrick’s Day is in just a few days, and we hope that you’ve got some fun plans for the holiday. If you haven’t given any thought to what you might be drinking that day, we’ve got some great choices that definitely beat the green-dyed beer some places will be serving.
Victory Donnybrook Stout – This is great as a sessionable Irish stout that packs all the flavor of its high-alcohol brothers. This is draft only, so it’s a good choice for your keg at a party.
O’Hara’s Irish Stout – This craft stout from Ireland has won several awards and likens itself to the way stouts used to be brewed in Ireland. It has coffee and light licorice flavors.
Rogue Irish Lager – If you aren’t so into stouts, this light Euro lager is a great change of pace that still harkens to an Irish style with its smooth, mellow flavor and apple crisp finish.
Carlsberg - Or go for the #1 lager in Ireland itself, which conveniently comes in a festive green bottle.
Starr Hill Dark Starr Stout – Another flavorful Irish stout with hints of coffee and dark chocolate, and a velvety body.
