Cheers to Saint Patty's Day

Craft beer drinkers have a hard time ignoring this date on the calendar each year. No, I'm not talking about the anniversary of Beer Utopia, I'm talking about Saint Patrick's Day. One of the top beer drinking holidays (unpaid holiday) in the land. It's upon this day that I dust off my old green shirts, celebrate my true Irish heritage (yes the Butler clan did originate from Ireland) and hold myself back from putting green food coloring in my beer. Now that I drink mostly darker more flavorful craft beers, green dye won't do a thing for it.

As is tradition on this blog, all 2 St. Patty's days worth, I'll leave you with a good ol' (may be new) Irish drinking song after the break. And while I'm at it I'll give you an old traditional Gaelic blessing...

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
