St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us. We thought this was the perfect time to celebrate some Irish drinking heritage. With data from Untappd, we mapped out Ireland’s 30 best breweries. Unsurprisingly, they’re not all in Dublin! You can see the full list here.
Guinness is one of the most iconic beers in the world. And while it may be most popular around St. Patrick’s Day, it truly is a beer for the entire year. Much lighter than you’d think and low in calories (only 125 calories to be exact), it’s a delicious beer that is steeped in tradition […]
I scream, you scream, we all scream for…shots! Sure you used to scream for ice cream as a kid, but lets face it, you’re an adult now, you work hard, you pay bills and that means you have the right to indulge. And we think there is not better way to indulge than with shots […]
Some of us give ourselves a razor-thin 30-minute margin to check in, get through security, and board an airplane. (Maybe a quick whiskey before you hit your gate.) But there are others among us, experienced fliers, who like to give themselves a bigger cushion of time between arrival and takeoff. Not so they can make […]
We love Guinness. We obsess over Guinness—how to pour it, how to drink it, how to stop from drooling as we stare at those cascading nitro ripples like they’re some kind of 4.2% ABV Magic Eye. And yes, on St. Patrick’s Day, we bless ourselves with Guinness like it’s holy water at church. We suck […]
For those of us staggering to find an Irish pub on St. Patrick’s Day, chances are we’re not looking for the real deal. Sure, we all like to get a little goose from Irish culture on March 17th (in return for the annually permissible sexual demands of a T-shirt). But the kind of “Irish” we tend to […]
When it comes to Irish Whiskey, Jameson is by far the biggest brand. It’s a beloved brand that’s been growing like crazy over the past decade, backed up by a clever ad campaign. Those ads — purposefully at times — stretch the truth, turning myths into facts. Whatever you may have heard, here are nine […]
America has a thirst for Irish whiskey. The Irish even spell whiskey like we do, with an e. Over the past half decade, imports of Irish Whiskey have soared, largely driven by Jameson’s success at convincing America that if you’re going to order a shot of (non-American) whiskey at the bar, it should be Jameson.
One night a few years ago, more than I actually care to admit, my brother and I walked into a crusty old pub somewhere upstate. The kind of place that’s full of old men in wool caps quietly nursing warm beer. The kind of place where you can actually feel yourself being sized up by […]
