St Patrick’s Day is known as a beer drinking holiday. Irish pubs will be pouring pints of green beer and Guinness all day and all night. But what about all you wine lovers out there? Will you sip down some beer with your corned beef and cabbage? There’s no need. We know beer might be the best option, but we have some wine options for you too.
Corned Beef and Cabbage is an Irish-American tradition. The salty beef and tender cabbage has become a St. Patrick’s Day staple. With this boiled dish, you need a wine to cut through the fat and saltiness of the brisket. A Southern Rhone Blend would best fit this dish. Being high in alcohol and having a medium body, this fruity wine has what it takes to complement it. If you are in the mood for a white wine, go with a off- dry German Riesling. It’s ripeness and slightly sweet nature will balance the meal nicely.
Do you just want to stick with a beer? Try a Black and Tan, a little different take on Guinness.
“May your glass be ever full. May the roof over your head be always strong. And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead” Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
