Are you planning to enjoy a delicious Guinness or Harp beer this St. Patrick’s Day? Then be prepared to swallow bits of dead fish (seriously!).
I am currently sitting in Chicago as the river is dyed green for what I once believed was my rightful Birthday…St. Patrick’s Day. Just as I was once surprised to learn that I would not be getting presents on this day, I am now surprised to find that dead fish play a critical step in the process of making Guinness, my favorite Irish beer.
