||Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (responsibly) with the best Irish beer.
Irish beer has a relatively low profile in the beer world, where Belgians, Germans, Czechs and our own American microbreweries tend to take center stage.
The exception is Dublin’s Guinness. It’s ubiquitous, but it hardly leads a vanguard of the best Irish beers.
In the opinion of many, award-winning O’Hara’s Irish Stout, from a 10-year-old Irish brewery, makes a richer, smoother, more complex stout than the ubiquitous Guinness. It pairs well with everything, including seafood (we even continued to drink it with our dessert, apple pie).
