SInce Derek took over the Shamrock Pub (http://www.facebook.com/shamrockpub) in Sarasota, he has been able to explore and share his love for craft beers.
The 3rd Annual St. Patty's Day Block Party (http://on.fb.me/firiD7 ) will be an opportunity to try all 5 of his picks.
5 (Beers I look forward to this St. Patrick's Day)1. Rogue's Kells Irish Lager
Deliciousness. Very Enjoyable. Wins everyone over. It's too damn expensive, but I still look forward to it.
The hottest brewery in the country is right up the road and brewing it's take on the Dry Irish Stout.
Sparkling, fruity and sweet pear cider. This newbie pear cider quickly won over the cider freaks.
Only this flavorful Irish Red from southie makes up half the Guinness concontion 'Boston Bruiser'.
This creamy classic has been used to pay people and feed them. Mix it with almost anything to create a fuller Irish treat.
