St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect excuse to explore the world of Irish cheese and beer. Lesser known than its European counterparts, but equally delicious, Ireland is experiencing an artisan cheese Renaissance.
Renowned for its high-quality dairy, pristine grazing lands and clean air, Ireland is a natural destination for top-notch cheesemaking. And lest you think Irish beer is all about stouts, we’ll share Irish beers that’ll appeal to any beer drinker. There are lagers, IPAs, ciders, and yes – stouts, too! Some of these breweries date back to the 1700s, so you can be sure you’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with some authentically Irish beer, even if you’re nowhere near the Emerald Isle.
We’ll taste our way through three Irish farmhouse cheeses and beers as we celebrate the St. Patrick’s day festivities. Sláinte!
