St. Patricks Day: Guinness Recipes

As the global hub of all St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, the Guinness Storehouse is opening its doors to offer revelers an exciting line-up of Irish-infused entertainment and festivities throughout the seven-storey building. The Guinness Storehouse will have a mix of local Irish talent and entertainment, including traditional Irish dancing and well known local bands.  DJs will add festive Irish music to the party atmosphere while stout pint sippers enjoy panoramic 360 degree views in the Guinness Storehouse Gravity Bar, the highest viewpoint throughout Dublin. As usual, all Guinness Storehouse visitors receive a complimentary pint of Guinness throughout the festival.

I am in Dublin to check it out for myself and will have more to follow up on once the revelry starts. 

For those who cant make it out to Dublin or just have that DIY spirit check out these recipes from the Guinness Storehouse and infuse your pint into one of my favorite recipes...I will reveal a new one every day leading up to St. Patty's Day!
