Let’s get GREEN for St. Patrick’s Day on the Windowsill today! HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

Why do we celebrate St. Patrick? No, he wasn’t a drunken Irishman. He was a legitimate saint! He actually wasn’t even Irish. St. Paddy was born in Britain to wealthy parents somewhere around the end of the 4th century. At 16, he was captured by Irish Pirates, who took him to Ireland by force. During his six years in captivity, he became a devout Christian. He left Ireland, came back, spread the gospel and may or may not have (probably not) have driven all the snakes off the island. He died on March 17, 461, and that’s why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day today… with lots and lots of alcohol!

We’re celebrating today with a really special beer from New York’s Captain Lawrence Brewing Company. It’s their Barrel Select Green, a dry-hopped sour ale aged in Italian Oak Tanks. It’s part of their barrel select series (Green, Gold, Black and Red). The Green is the only dry-hopped variety—the process is executed with El Dorado and Super Galena hops—and that extra hoppyness goes a long way to making this a very flavorful beer. It’s crisp, light, super carbonated, sour and “assertive.” A solid wild ale from a great Brewery.
