The Best Irish Beer Picks For St. Paddy’s Day

Beer Expert's Irish Beer Picks

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

It’s that time of year again, when leprechauns linger around shiny pots of gold and four leaf clovers find their way onto green hats, plastic necklaces and Irish insignias around the country. Whether celebrating St. Paddy’s Day means hitting the streets or hanging out at home this year, having a beer (or three) is a must, and making it an Irish-style brew is always encouraged.

We caught up with restaurant beer director and Irish beer enthusiast Greg Engert, who shared a few of his favorite Irish-style sips. From traditional dry stouts to off-the-beaten-path ales, say hello to St. Paddy’s Day imbibing with a pint of something new.

Bottoms up, folks.

Considering our love for all things green, made with ice cream and Irish, we simply had to join the folks at the Huffington Post and Gothamist in celebration. There are many takeaways to be had from such a momentous announcement — requisite visit(s) to your nearest Mickey D’s for a minty, vanilla-y shake being the first, of course — but consider this: What if it was alcoholic? What if the Shamrock Shake were…spiked? Fortunately for, well, everyone we asked that timely question long ago. The result? Something we like to call The Irish Pirate. Bottoms up, folks.
