In other words, great beers you’d never want to turn green

Maryse Chevriere

For fans of great brews, it’s admittedly a little worrisome that Googling "St. Patrick’s Day Beer" instantly returns a rash of images and links to neon-green pints.

St. Patrick's Day is arguably one of the greatest beer-drinking holidays, and it’s a shame that its most iconic drink has become cheap, light beer spiked with green dye. Interestingly enough, however, the earliest references to green beer have nothing to do with St. Patrick’s Day or the color green; rather, the term was used to describe beer that had not been sufficiently aged. It is not until the early 20th century that mentions of green-dyed beer come up in association with the holiday.

While the none-too-appetizing St. Patty’s Day beverage seems to be here to stay, that doesn’t mean you can’t buck tradition this holiday and celebrate with great-tasting beers that tip their hat to the Emerald Isle’s great brewing history.

From dry stouts and red ales to lagers and cream ales, here are eight Irish and Irish-style beers too good to turn green.


10 Amazing Irish Beers To Toast With On St. Patrick's Day

Spoiler alert: Ireland churns out way more than just Guinness.

Lest you think Irish beer is all about stouts, we're sharing a whole slew of Irish beers that'll appeal to any beer drinker. There are lagers, IPAs, ciders, and&mdashfine, yes&mdashstouts, too! Some of these breweries date back to the 1700s, so you can be sure you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day with some authentically Irish beer, even if you're nowhere near the Emerald Isle.

Brewed since 1856 in Cork, Ireland's Lady&rsquos Well Brewery, the stout is described as dark in color but with almost no bitterness. It's got toffee and coffee undertones and is said to be creamy.

This beer has been around since 1710 (!!) and was brewed at the St. Francis Abbey Brewery in Kilkenny until 2013, when production moved to Dublin. It's smooth and creamy and served much like Guinness.

Smithwick's, which dates back to as early as 1710, calls this beer Ireland's "most loved ale." The ruby red ale is available year round in bottles and on draught, and it has a slight bitterness balanced out by sweet, malty notes.

OK, we couldn't not include Guinness on this list. The most famous of Irish ales comes in a dozen varieties, including this chocolatey Extra Stout.
