7 St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast Beers Sure To Open Your Irish Eyes
The parades are scheduled, everyone’s decked out in green, and from coast to coast we’re all preparing to celebrate the annual Irish holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. As hoards of people flock out to their annual events, the beer begins to flow earlier than usual, with some bars starting to serve at hours usually reserved for a warm cup of coffee or a brisk morning jog. As you stare bleary eyed at the liquor store shelves, keep your eyes peeled for one of these ideal morning brews which will awaken your taste buds and get the morning started in style.
Feel free to eat a light breakfast with this one, as Founders delivers a delicious “double chocolate coffee oatmeal stout” which packs a punch at 8.3% alcohol. Perhaps the highest rated and most popular breakfast stout, this will have St. Patty’s Day partiers perked up in no time.
Brewed with coffee from one of the brewery’s local shops, Wake-n-Bake isn’t just the best named stout, but a tremendously tasty beer. Full bodied, a bit sweet, and plenty of coffee bean flavor swirled with a potent 8.1% alcohol will ensure your morning buzz is a bit stronger than the typical cup of joe.
How about a little beer to go with your bacon and eggs in the morning? Stone Brewing Company’s Smoked Porter contains a deliciously smoky character which just screams breakfast. We’re not saying this is bacon beer, but anyone willing to give this one a try will see exactly what we’re talking about.
Definitely on the lighter side of things, Allagash’s flagship wheat beer is flavorful and drinkable while providing some excellent morning refreshment. Fruit character and a touch of spice make this an excellent beer alternative to mimosas, especially if champagne isn’t your cup of tea.
Some people will be having oatmeal, while others enjoy the more exciting liquid version. This famous English beer has been delighting people’s taste buds for decades with oats, roasted malt, and chocolate while providing just enough nourishment to kick off the St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans.
A whirlwind mix of roasted espresso and coffee beans gives this beer its enticing name, as well as its incredible flavor. This is yet another stout to supplement your morning pancakes with, while it warms your insides with its cocoa laced coffee taste and solid 7.5% alcohol.
An American take on the classic Belgian wit, this is a light, refreshing, citrusy beer that’ll invigorate your groggy senses while going down smooth and easy. Spiced with orange peel and coriander, this is one way to get a dash of fruit in with your a.m. beverage before the parades and parties have you all Irished out.
