Happy St. Patty's day, have some corn beef stew bathing in Guinness on the Crock pot. I was getting hungry making it, can't wait to eat that with a pint of Smithwick's. Maybe I will stop by the liquor store on the way home and pick up a bottle of Tullamore Dew.

Riverdancing is a must as well. Every St. Patrick's Day must include the following:

Guiness
fiddle
riverdancing
men in skirts
Guiness
bagpipes
funny beards
lots of green attire
Guiness

Excellent choices there, redraider629! I have the exact same stew in my crock pot as we speak, along with a half bottle of Tullamore setting on my bar. I probably won't get to the Dew on my bar tonight, but I'll have a flask of it in me sporran for later. Our pipe band is doing the usually pub tour/crawl tonight and probably won't get done until after midnight. I'll pay for it tomorrow!

Beers,
Ken

Patty's Day? WTF?

Take it from someone born and bred in Ireland, It's Paddy's Day. I've never heard it called Patty's Day by an Irishman.

Anyway, pedantic rant out of the way, have a good one. And if you can find it, Porterhouse Plain, is the best Irish stout, for your money.

We (in the US) are good at bastardizing Irish culture. Witness the phenomenon whereby bars are given an absurdly stereotypical Irish name, accented in green, and suddenly become Irish Pubs.

Insert culture of choice, and you speak volumes.

I got pinched on the arm today by a 4 year old girl for not wearing green on St. Patrick's day. I am now biding my time until Hanukkah. I'm gonna punch her in the face for not being Jewish.

That's hilarious!

How can you spot an American Tourist in a foreign country (That's not Ireland)?

They're the only one looking for an Irish pub!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

To be fair, we do drink Budweiser with green food coloring in it just like they do in Kilkenny.

Yup cooked up the Corned beef and cabbage over the w/e. I've been Celebrating ever since! Home Brew on Tap is GOOD!

But no I'm not adding any green food coloring.... I have to draw the line somewhere.

Your "re-headed 2 year old boy" ...... :drunk:

Maybe its the HomeBrew, but I think you just implied that you have the first 2 year old with a head transplant :D

Here's a brew to you. :mug:

Added some food coloring to my MOGA SMaSH. Never actually had green beer before, figured I should do it at least once. Had 2 pints, then went for the 3rd and *sputter splish Flwop* Damn beer goes fast when it's in kegs.
