Irish Beer Week

Happy 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.
