That being said, we’re going to tap into today’s enthusiasm for Irish beer and, on the 113th St. Patrick’s Day, choose five of our favourite Irish beers that we have in the shops. If you want to celebrate the Scourge of Snakes™ with an Irish beer, you’re on to a winner with one of these but remember, they’ll taste just as good tomorrow!
Top Five Irish Beers – Not just for St. Patrick’s Day
This blog was going to mention something about drinking better beer than Guiness on St. Patrick’s Day, but pretty much every other Tweet, Facebook post and Instagram image have beaten me to it. It’s a given that these beers are better than Guiness, however, they aren’t merely novelty beers that should be broken out for one day a year, just because they’re Irish.
A big bold decadent beer, World’s End is the beer to top off any dinner or party. Brewed with Fairtrade Cacao rusks and vanilla pods, this beer is rich, chocolatey and sweet and, whilst the ABV may seem scary, it drinks ridiculously easy. Pair with some chocolate mud cake or indeed an Irish coffee and you’re on to a winner!
Something nice and light to throw into the mix, Trouble Brewing hail from Co. Kildare and their Graffiti Pale Ale is the perfect session bitter. Hopped with American hops (you can see who influences the Irish scene!), it’s bursting with flavour but light enough to allow you to enjoy a few.
