I usually throw a big party, but it may just be like 10-20 people instead of 40-50 this year, since my new house is much smaller. A few years ago I brewed my 2nd beer, 1st recipe of my own, all grain, new equipment, on St. Patrick's Day. It was a Foreign Extra Stout that scored a 43/50 that May. I was pounding back Guinness/Beamish/Murphys while brewing - who says you can't drink and brew? The years after I have had 6 beers on tap. Irish Red and FES (both have been on nitro, but not anymore - I think it's more novelty than anything), and 4 other random beers. Last year I brewed Monolith on St. Patrick's Day, my 16.3% RIS. One of the best beers I have ever tasted and a lot of people like it better than Dark Lord. So I plan to brew that again this year.
