Create the feel of an Irish pub crawl without guests ever leaving your living room. Set up drinking "stations" around the room that highlight authentic Irish ales that perfectly pair with a boozy drink, like mini stout cakes or Smithwick’s Irish Ale Crab Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers. For décor, use vintage bar signs, chalkboards with the day’s "specials," and keep the lighting and colors dim to reflect the inside of an Irish pub — and don’t forget the traditional Irish drinking songs playlist. In addition to Guinness and the Smithwick's, include true Irish classics like Bulmers Cider, Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale, and Murphy’s Irish Red Ale for a great flavor variety. You’ll give your guests an authentic Irish drinking experience they are sure to remember — provided they don’t get too into the night’s theme.
