5 Foods to Pair With Your Pint of Guinness Today

It’s the day when millions of people celebrate Ireland’s patron saint and you avoid the office do-gooder who’s going around pinching everyone that didn’t wear green. After all, you prefer to celebrate this holiday in its purest form: with a nice pint of Guinness. But to get the full taste of this time honored tradition, you need to pair it with just the right meal. 

Guinness may be a dark brew with a trademark pillowy foam, but the ale’s low alcohol content puts it on par with Coors Light. Flavor-wise it tastes a tad bittersweet, with appealing notes of roasted coffee and chocolate. It’s like drinking liquid silk. And on a day when about 13 million pints will be sold (that’s 150 pints per second), here are the best dishes to pair with it:
