Avo Beer Pairings Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day

Go green this St. Patrick’s Day by pairing the perfect avocado recipe with your favorite brew. Whatever the notes and undertones of your favorite pot of gold, the right dish can enhance and highlight its flavor for a festive Irish meal.

O’Hara’s Curim Gold Celtic Wheat Beer

Wheat lends this libation a crisp, refreshing tartness, while hints of plum and peach bring on distinct flavor dimensions. Pair with strong, spicy foods topped with avocado to elevate both food and drink.

PAIR WITH: Beef Chili with Avocado

O’Shea’s Traditional Irish Pale Ale

Lots of hops give this ale a pleasant, soft bitterness. A sweet malty background and citrusy character couple it well with creamy avocados and blue cheese. Add almonds to bring out its flavor even more.

PAIR WITH: Blue Cheese Guacamole

Harp Lager

Light hops and a sweet fruitiness highlight subtle taste sensations. As a highly carbonated beer, this lager helps clear the palate for the next bite or sip. Adds depth to light dishes containing avocados, and fruit.

PAIR WITH: Avocado and Tropical Fruit Salsa

Murphy’s Irish Red

This beer’s earthy, grassy essence encourages avocado’s fresh flavors to shine. Thanks to barley, this brew also carries hints of caramel and spice. For a pleasing profile, enjoy with a combo created by bread, avocado, and goat cheese.

PAIR WITH: Avocado, Tomato Goat Cheese Toasts

Guinness Extra Stout (Original)

St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be complete without this traditional taste of the Emerald Isle! Irish stout’s low carbonation lends it a creamier form than many other beers, making it a great match for avocados. Roasted barley and a hint of hops give this beverage its bitterness, and make it pair well with avocados and seafood.

PAIR WITH: Crab Cakes with Avocado Serrano Aioli
