Because it just wouldn't be a proper celebration of St. Patrick's Day without a bit of banter over a beer!

Gravity Bar has wonderful 360-degree views of Dublin and all the Guinness you can drink. You can even try your hand at pouring the perfect pint. The bartenders know what they're doing, and to prove it, they make shamrocks into the foam with a...

St James's Gate, Ushers, Dublin 8, Co. Dublin, Ireland
Best bar in the world? Debatable. Freshest Guinness on earth? No doubt. An expedition to the Gravity Bar at St. James's Gate, perched atop the venerated Guinness Storehouse, was the perfect way to cap our Irish escapades. The storehouse, including...

This is my favorite pub in San Diego. The owner confided in me once that he never thought of this type of business, but one day took an impromptu trip sponsored by Guinness to Ireland to learn about owning a bar. He enjoyed it so much that when he...

Disclaimer: this is not the best photo I've ever taken, but I should be given a free pass - this was my first night in Ireland, and I was knee-deep in frothy stout. All. Night. Long. I'm shocked I was even able to operate my camera, or that it...

My travel partner and I have a thing for brew pubs. Our time on the road has taught us that some of the best food to be found comes out of kitchens like this, while the beers are, of course, second to none. Three Floyd's is one of the kings of the...

You've got two options: a drink at Wynkoop Brewing Company, or a wander through the Denver Modern Art Museum. I chose wrong. It took half a dozen pints of Cowtown Milk Stout to wash away the memory of that museum's dreadful third floor exhibition....
