My favorite holiday is this week and I look forward in taking part. St Patty's Day brings out the irish in everyone and this week will be no different. What are your plans to celebrate? Where will you enjoy the festivities and what food will you enjoy? Let me know your favorite spots to celebrate and with whom you celebrate and I will put into a future post.
As for the beers to try, it is hard not to enjoy Guinness stout and their new to the US- Foreign Extra Stout. This is the beer that is linked to Ireland and the Irish. Harp and Smithwicks are other irish beers to enjoy as well. Murphys Stout is the only other imported stout that you may want to sample. As for local craft beers to try take a look for Lakefront's Snake Chaser or New Glarus Coffee Stout.
