DB15 Celebrates Ireland

Our March meeting kicked off an early St. Patrick's Day
celebration with a tasting of nine beers direct from the Emerald
Isle. A boisterous group of nearly 30 members sampled five
different stouts including cans of authentic Guinness (not the
Canadian version available in most parts of the USA), three "Irish
Reds", and even an "Irish pale".  While opinions were divided on
each of the brews, stouts from Murphy's and O'Hara's  had
universal support.  The meeting ended with a few tunes played by
our guest piper as Irish eyes (and everyone else's)
were indeed smiling
