Happy St. Patrick's Day
i notice that a few bloggers have posted pictures of their favorite Irish beverage in celebration of today's holiday.
Eric posted about Caffrey's, a brew i have not yet sampled.
Preston posted about that old standby, Guinness, a brew that i am all too familiar with. And if Matt were still posting regularly, i know he'd put up a Guinness photo, too.
Here's my Irish brew of choice:
Slightly bitter, a hint of cocoa, very complex on the palate. Murphy's Stout makes Guinness taste like water by comparison.
No beverage pics at Sheila's but she's got a bevy of great St. Patrick's day posts, as i expected. i'm still eagerly awaitin' to see what the Irish Lass will post. And Happy Anniversary to Dizzy Girl Gennie and her hubbie!
Update: Ted wants a Corona. A Corona?! i won't even drink that shit on cinco de Mayo.
And the best St. Patrick's Day gift of all: bad-ass John is back! With a post on his drink of choice to boot!
Now, if we could just work on Bill at Bloviating Inanities.
Update 2: i almost missed Michele's Guinness Ice Cream recipe until just now. Don't you miss it.

MMMmmmmmMMMMmmmm. I like Murphy's too. But I can't find it, either. :(
I'm stopping to get some Murphy's on the way home from work. We'll see about your Guinness bashing. Then again, I do have a big jug of Bushmills Irish Whiskey that I may tap instead. These are difficult choices.
I, too, will be trying the Murphy's tonight, having drunk many Guinnesses (Guinni?).
I have never tried murphy's. I guess I will try it out, I don't think there is a better day.
Thanks so much. Happy St. Patty's Day!
Hate to kill the Irish spirit, but try a few Belgian Blondes like Duvel. (And then seek out real Belgian Blondes) The taste is truly complex and at 9% alcohol/volume, it is a more efficient way to the land of wobbly public urination.
Belgian blondes ain't no match for one Danish blonde!
I am with you on the corona the hell with that crap.
So a Danish blonde beats a Belgian blonde, I don't think I have seen a Danish blonde before or any Danish person for that matter. What do they look like?
I have been to Denmark a number of times. The first thing you notice about the Danish is their height. They are the giants of the human race-both male and female.
Since I like tall women that is one of the reasons I am impressed with Danish women.
One word : WHISKY
Blech, I'm glad that I buy Jameson's by the case. Bushmills is dog's vomit.
i liked your "panther piss" epithet better.
Belgian blondes are definitely among the best BEER--mmmm, Duvel; mmmmm, Hoegaarden--but I'm inclined/persuaded to believe Danish blondes are better in the other sense. ;-)
Oh, and the Vikings founded Dublin, so you're probably even more Irish than you realize.
