Don’t Go Green! (At Least Not In Your Beer)

Several Michigan breweries offer more authentic, Irish-inspired brews



Published:

One of the strangest St. Patrick’s Day traditions is adding green dye to an otherwise unmemorable beer and calling it a day. But why would you? Several Michigan breweries have more authentic, Irish-inspired brews year-round or seasonal specials. Examples include Michael Faricy’s Irish Stout from Arbor Brewing, Uncle Steve’s Irish Stout from Short’s, Sinuous Celtic Ale from North Peak, and Rochester Red from Rochester Mills

Local taprooms also do special brews this time of year. Kuhnhenn has done a Breakfast of Champions event for years with themed beers like Wild Blueberry Pancake or Breakfast Sausage ale. And at press time the folks at Great Baraboo were considering a Blarney Stone Porter (made with exclusively Irish malt) and an Irish Red.
