It was tricky to put the selection of beers we'll be tasting together. We really wanted to avoid Guinness and Harp, things we've all tasted before. We would have like to get all beers from Ireland, but there is a real lack of them in the store and we were at a really good beer store. That's why we added Irish-style to the mix. Here's what we'll be tasting...
Finnegan's Blonde Ale and Irish Amber - Finnegan's is brewed locally and 100% of the proceeds got to charity, so we are doing a good thing by drinking it.
Great Lakes Brewing Conway's Irish Ale - Out of Cleveland, OH
Sprecher Irish Stout - From Glendale, WI.
Porterhouse Brewing Red, Wrasslers Full Stout and Oyster Stout - These were the only beers we could find from Ireland that were not Guinness or Harp. Porterhouse is based in Dublin and is apparently the largest independent brewery in Ireland.
Other than the Finnegan's Irish Amber these will all be new beers for all of us. So, what do you think, have you ever tried any of the beers we're having? Do you know of any other Irish beers that are available in the US?
