When I drink beer, I usually go for a stout. I love dark beer, and I was in my glory two years ago when my husband and I took a trip to Ireland to celebrate our 15th anniversary. The beer was so good.

While there will always be a place in my heart for Smithwicks or Guinness poured straight from the tap, I’m thinking it’s time I venture out a bit and try some stout made here in the United States. I’ve been taking a look at what organic and sustainable stouts we have available on this side of the Atlantic.

Since today is St. Patick’s Day, I thought it only fitting to share with you what I’ve found in the way of organic or sustainable stouts from around the country. Let me know if you’ve ever tried any of these or if there are others you’ve tried that aren’t listed here.

If you come across any of these stouts today while you’re out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, give them a shot, or should I say give them a pour.
