It’s the night for Irish brew and all things green, so sidle up and grab a Guinness.
Or, if you’re feel fancy pants, order up a beer cocktail like a Black and Tan. If you’re nostalgic, you might want to try an alcoholic spin on a childhood favorite and make a Guinness float (I’ll take mine with coffee ice cream, thank you very much).
While those are all dandy and fine, this year I’ve got my sites on the Black Velvet. A blend of bubbly and brew, it’s sour like a gueuze lambic, full-bodied from the beer, and a beauty to look at, making it my date for tonight’s festivities.
