While parades, corned beef and cabbage, and lucky four leafed clovers are what typically come to mind this time of year, St. Patrick's Day celebrations would not be complete without delicious stout beer.
That said, there are many stouts available that you may have not yet tried. On or before Tuesday, the 17th is a great opportunity to broaden your horizons and try something new and unique.
Hopefully Saturday's snow was the last of the winter season so that we can move on to Spring. I want to mention a new beer from Leinenkugel's that was introduced in March. It is their newest year round style-Classic Amber. It is an all-malt amber lager. It is brewed with Pale,Munich and firekilned Caramel 60 malts and balacned by a citrus hop complexity. Some food pairings to try with this new beer are venison, veal tenderloin, a grilled porterhouse steak or a sharp cheddar cheeseburger. I encourage you to try the new Classic Amber from Leinenkugel's and let me know what food pairings that you come up with for this beer.
