Everyone is a little Irish on March 17th, right. I come by it naturally from my Irish-born grandmother Irene so the wearing & living of the green is a wee more constant presence for me.
I’ve always thought of St. Patrick’s Day as one of the greenest days of the year. Second only to Earth Day (April 22nd). In fact, it’s a great precursor to all of Earth Month. Embracing these two green days is a wonderful way to celebrate the wonder of nature’s beauty as spring bursts with new life.
Enough waxing, let’s get to the drinking!
Although I prefer something black & tan most St. Pat’s days, I’ve been known to have a green beer or two. As lrish luck would have it, it’s never been easier to drink green! That’s great because who really wants to drink a bunch of pesticides?
Like many consumer products, the adult beverage industry is greening itself and becoming more sustainable. There’s even a Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Irish expressions…
May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus, too.
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.
Remember to drink responsibly. You are what you drink.
