Reminder for Tomorrow: Don't Drink Green Beer!


If you want a real Irish beer to imbibe in honor of the Feast of St. Patrick, then Smithwick's Irish Ale is the one I recommend.


Smithwick's (pronounced "Smithick's" or "Smiddick's") is brewed in the 12th Century St. Francis Abbey in Kilkenny, Ireland (I've been there and tasted my first pint of Smithwick's in a nearby pub), and is touted as "Ireland's Oldest Ale", dating from 1710.

    Make mine a Guinness - extra stout, if you have it on tap.

    I'm a half and half man myself, although Smithwick's is a fine quality beer also. I had to help celebrate my patron holiday by enjoying one last night, no complaints from me.
