You might know that St. Patrick’s Day honors Ireland’s patron saint, but you might not realize that an American craft beer, Samuel Adams Boston Lager, is one of the most popular pints raised on St. Patrick’s Day each year.
New York City’s Field & Clover, an Accion Client and participant in the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream program, created St. Patrick’s Day Boston Lager Biscuits to honor the holiday. These beer infused biscuits put an Irish twist on a classic American comfort food. The collaboration generated interest in the media, and Field & Clover founder Annie Etheridge had the opportunity to discuss with the New York Business Journal and Metro New York.
About the St. Patrick’s Boston Lager Biscuit:

But of course beer isn’t just for cooking, it’s for drinking, too! Pair the biscuits with Boston Lager – the brew’s malt backbone and spicy hoppiness balances the richness of the biscuits and and creates a pleasant echo effect with the flavors of both lingering on the palate. Boston Lager’s malt character gives the biscuits an added sweetness, and the German Noble hops lend subtle spiciness are in perfect harmony with the spicy rye flavors.
