    'Irish lands absorb the rain like Irish swallow whiskey and beer.'

     

    Irish beers

     

    For 4 weeks I've drunk lots of beers and among all of these I could taste few irish beers : Guinness, Harp (blond beer), Smithwick's (amber beer) and Finn.


    Irish beersHarp

    Harp is a beer created by Guinness in the Dundalk Brewery. The first bottle was created in 1960. Today it is produced by Diageo due to the merger between Grand Metropolitan and Guinness.

    Harp is also locally brewed in Great Britain and Canada.

    Because of its fresh taste, this beer has received six gold quality labels by the International Institute for Quality Selections.

    And why a harp? Because it is a symbol of Ireland.

    Smithwick's is also brewed by Diageo.

    I've found few informations about Finn. I know it is produced in Northern Ireland, brewed by Station Works.

    It's a beer with citrus notes.

    NB :
    Mr Vilaine, I know you said articles about beers aren't useful but I would like to write one because Ireland is the country of beers. So it's a sufficient reason to speak about that, isn't it ?
