The Best Beers for St. Patrick’s Day

We all love Guinness: It’s classic, dependable, and ubiquitous. But that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to drinking eight of ‘em on Saint Patrick’s Day. These stouts all share similar tastes (roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, coffee), but interesting details shine through to make each one a unique choice that sets them apart from the big names. Pick any (or all) of these up and take a break from the same boring options you stocked your fridge with last year.

"The only thing red wine does better than white is stain your clothes." - Alan Richman
Maybe you drink white wine only with fish. Or only with lunch. Or only at midsummer baby showers when the keg runs out. Well, get ready for white Burgundies big enough to decant (that’s right—decant) all winter, the best champagne for fried chicken, and Chardonnay that’s not just for aging socialites. You’ll never skip the “whites” section again.
