I learned to love Guinness when I visited Ireland in college and now we get to enjoy it every single day here! In honor of St. Paddy's Day this weekend we're featuring Guinness Draught and Guinness Blonde on Happy Hour with Hannah and Otto's Wine & Spirits! Pick up your 12-pack of bottles for just $10.99 at Otto's Wine & Spirits!
I hadn't had Guinness Blonde yet so I was super excited to try it. I like Guinness a lot but I prefer beers with a golden amber coloring so it's awesome Guinness now makes one! Guinness Blonde is all about mixing Irish tradition with American spirit. The flavor is a complex lager that's light, floral and alive with citrus. It's this great blend of lingering malt and a biscuity finish. 5% ABV
You often worry that Guinness Draught just won't be the same but honestly it's still so good. When you get in in a bottle here in the U.S. you don't get that cool shamrock they put in the foam like you do in Ireland but it still tastes great! It was developed in 1959 in celebration of Arthur Guinness signing his 9,000-year lease. A pretty fitting way to mark 200 years of groundbreaking brewing. Guinness Draught is actually just 4.2% ABV and 125 calories. That surprised me but makes it just that much better! Guinness is known for being rich and creamy, distinctively black, velvety in finish and of course you can't forget the unmistakable white head that sits atop this dark beer.
Nothing says St. Paddy's day like Guinness and don't forget you can mix Guinness with other beverages to make fun drinks! 12-packs of Guinness Draught and Guinness Blonde are waiting for you at Otto's Wine & Spirits and with seven different locations I'm sure you can find one near you! The best part about Happy Hour with Hannah and Otto's Wine & Spirits is that I get to hang with my friends and all these great beverages from Otto's. We're of course back with another Facebook LIVE today (3/14 - happy pi day) at 4:00pm on 95.7 BIG FM's Facebook page. I have two first timers joining me I can't wait for you to meet. They're both Irish!
