- 32.20.09Guinness Prop 3-17 to Make St. Pat’s Official Holiday
Not that we don’t already celebrate St. Paddy’s day like the ordained father of all holiday’s, but this time of the year Guinness hauls out it’s campaign to promote Proposition 3-17, a mission to get one million signatures on their petition to make St. Patrick’s Day an official holiday.
- 12.16.09St. Patrick’s Day: “Céad Míle Fáilte” One Hundred Thousand Welcomes
It’s not easy being green. But that doesn’t stop millions of happy, drunk Irishmen or their boy-o’s from celebrating St. Patrick’s Day every year. March 17th is when the big drinkers come out to play. Thank God for the patron saint of beer. Paddy will be looking down over our shoulders, as he does every March, making sure that everyone has enough beer to flush a blarney stone and enough corned beef to clog at least two ventricles and your left atrium.
- 102.16.09Beamish Irish Stout
Like most beer drinkers I look forward to March and St. Patrick’s day as an excuse to get sloppy. But it’s also an excuse to try some beers with an Irish heritage that you may not always drink on a regular basis.
- 22.16.09Killian’s Red: Kelly Green With Envy

- 22.16.09Murphy’s Irish Red
I have had a good deal of Murphy’s Irish Red in my day- and in my nights. For the most part it’s been the draft version as served in a dark, dank Irish Pub. It’s dry, crisp and hoppy with a rich red hue.
- 12.16.09Brian’s Belly Presents: Our Trip to Ireland
A few years back, we spent ten days drinking and driving our way around beautiful Ireland (on the wrong side of the road, we may add). We summarized the trip with this two minute short film… hope you enjoy toilet bowls.
- 21.13.09Harp Lager, Quarters for the Meter, and Heaps o’ Trouble
It was the kind of day you can’t plan–it just evolved organically. And Harp Lager was the centerpiece of our whole misguided adventure.
- 2812.4.08Guinness Stout: Vitamin G in a Bottle
“Why don’t you have a review of Guinness on your site?” “Why don’t you have a review of Guinness on your site?” “Why don’t you have a review of Guinness on your site?” Sometimes our emails all start the same- “Dear Idiots, Why don’t you have a review of Guinness on your site?”
- 411.16.08Guinness Corned Beef
I have completely hijacked this Corned Beef recipe to make it my own! After 10 years of making it, I know how to do it right.
- 111.16.08Corned Beef & Cabbage
Although you can eat this anytime of the year, it’s known as a St. Patrick’s Day favorite, part of our Cead Mile Failte St. Pat’s article.
- 011.16.08Irish Soda Bread
Corned beef and cabbage aren’t the only staple on St. Patrick’s Day.
- 2411.15.08Caffrey’s Irish Ale: Nitro Bitter From Ireland
I enjoy having a selection of Irish beers to choose from when the St. Patrick’s Day parade comes through my town. It is because of this that I stumbled across Caffrey’s Irish Ale a few years back while trying to stock the shelves with some variety from Ireland.
