When you think of drinking on St. Patrick’s Day, likely the first thing that comes to mind is a Guinness, followed quick quickly by a shot of Jameson. Those two brands have definitely made themselves household names when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day, but they’re far from the only game in town.
While Guinness certainly makes some outstanding stuff, Ireland is actually home to a number of amazing breweries. Check out the gallery, above, for a look at some of the different types of Irish beers there are out there, including a few made by Guinness that aren’t your traditional stout.
