St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on the 17th of March, honoring the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. It has been observed as a religious holiday since the early 17th century and has since evolved into a secular celebration of Irish culture. The holiday is often associated with the color green, parades, and the consumption of traditional Irish foods and drinks, including beer. Irish-style ales, such as stout and red ale, are popular on St. Patrick’s Day. The holiday provides an opportunity for people to come together and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Ireland and its contributions to the world, including its famous beers.

If you're looking for a perfect beer to serve with haggis, you will need a strong and maybe even sweet beer and we think that the best beers that tick all those boxes in fact come from Belgium. Think strong Triples, Blondes or even a Quadruple will play a perfect role in getting your merry whilst also being a great match to spicy, fat-rich haggis. We recommend Rochefort 10, Chimay Red or even Westmalle Tripel.
