St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with an Irish cheese plate? We have put together a selection of some of our favorites and Eric, our beer buyer, has given us a list of fantastic beers to pair with them.
Beer, to me, is a story in a bottle. It develops over time, it encourages you to think and it teaches you something about yourself and your palate. As a beer buyer at our fancy little food store, St. Patrick’s Day is not all that different from any other day, honestly. There isn’t a lot of great beer coming out of Ireland not called Guinness or Murphy’s, although the craft brewing revolution, though small and new, is at least alive and well. Although we can’t yet source Irish craft beers in the States, here are a few domestic St. Patrick’s Day recommendations.
