Irish Beer Week

Irish Beer WeekHappy St. Patrick’s Day and welcome to Irish Beer Week! In honor of the green-and-beer-themed holiday I’ll be writing on Irish-styled and influenced beer this week.

Right off the bat, a morning link roundup:

- The Beer Nut (from Dublin, no less!) reviews O’Hara’s Celebration Stout and has a bit more to say about the Irish and craft beer—worth a read, so don’t miss it.

- I’m amused by Guinness‘ PR campaign to make St. Patty’s Day a national holiday (Proposition 3-17), but, well, it is a PR thing after all. Are people taking it seriously?

- Lucy Saunders posts an amazing-looking St. Patty’s dessert: fudge stout brownies.

    The darker the irish beer the better! Who needs to water color swill when you can have all the goodness you need with a dark beer!

    I’m hoping they DON’T make St. Patty’s day a national holiday. Lord knows we don’t need to give Hallmark another reason for us to buy cards. Let the holiday stay where it belongs – in the hearts of Irish fans worldwide.
