St. Patrick's Day is a drinking holiday with loads of tradition -- but that doesn't mean you should keep drinking the same thing year after year. Sure there's plenty of green beer and Irish whiskey to go around, but this year Draught Lines has some St. Paddy's Day Sleeper beers to add to your must-drink list.
Sly Fox O'Reilly & Seamus' Red
Sly Fox has TWO solid St. Paddy's Day alternatives. Seamus' Irish Red Ale is a draught only, session with a delightful hop finish. The O'Reilly Stout is a dry nitro stout named for Sly Fox's fearless head brewer Brian O'Reilly. Both beers are seriously crushable so you can keep the party going all day.
Harpoon The Craic
A new St. Paddy's Day sleeper for 2017, The Craic is actually a hybrid ale that combines the IPA styel with a classic Irish Red. The result is a unique mix of tasted, malty flavor balanced with that citrusy and fruity hop character.
Great Lakes Conways Irish Ale
Another classic Irish Ale, Conways Irish Ale is a 7-time Medal Winner that pairs great with corned beef stews and a hard day's work (or a hard day's work of drinking Irish Ales!)
Okay, not at all a sleeper, but it wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day if you didn't tip back a couple pints of Guinness -- it's a St. Paddy's Day must!
