Band of Brews

There’s been plenty of cross-pollination between the US and Ireland over the years. After all, there are almost seven times more Irish-Americans than there are Irish, according to census data. The Band of Brews celebrates the overlap by blending Guinness Blondea fusion of American hops with Irish brewing techniqueswith Dublin’s longtime heritage beer, Guinness Draught, then adding cold brew, coconut cream, and sugar. Topped off with chocolate bitters, it’s a layered, frothy treat perfect for watching a dyed-green river drift past.
