6 Beers To Drink On St. Patty’s Day That Aren’t Guinness

While Guinness is delicious, there are a lot of other beers you can drink on St. Patrick’s Day. Here are some of our favourites.

6 Beers To Drink On St. Patty’s Day That Aren’t Guinness

Deschutes_ObsidianStout1. Obsidian StoutDeschutes Brewery

GreenFlash_DoubleStout2. Double StoutGreen Flash Brewing Company

This beer is higher in alcohol, bolder in flavor and heavier in body. Green Flash Double Stout has a thick texture and auras of cocoa and dark fruits. And it’s very boozy which makes it’s perfect to drink on St. Patrick’s Day with your friends.

 

 

 

LeftHand_Nitro3. Milk Stout NitroLeft Hand Brewing Company

Left Hand Brewing’s Milk Stout Nitro tastes like a boozy glass of chocolate milk, which sound amazing. This brew has hints of vanilla, brown sugar and coffee. It’s nitrogenated (like Guinness). If you’ve ever noticed that a can of Guinness has a little ball inside, there’s a reason: It keeps the nitro carbonation moving and results in a nice, creamy pour. This bottle doesn’t have a similar mechanism, so you need to “hard pour” the beer, meaning without tipping your glass at all. Some beer geeks even recommend shaking the bottle up and down like a ketchup bottle. This helps create the perfect, creamy head.

 

 

Moylans_ISRA4. Irish Style Red AleMoylan’s Brewery

A rich ale recipe from the Homeland, this Irish Red Ale is a malty sweetness in liquid form. A low hop profile dances above the massive barley character, creating an invigorating aroma and caramel character that will compliment most foods. Hearty and luscious, this brew is what keeps those Irish Eyes A’ Smilin’!

 

 

 

Granville_Shamrocker5. Shamrocker Potato StoutGranville Island Brewery

Get ready to rock out to this dry Irish stout. With amped up tones of roasted coffee, barley and malts, it’s a medley of Celtic proportions. Dark roasted coffee flavours with roasted malt aroma and a hint of earthy hops. It’s medium bodied with a dry taste.
