What To Drink: A Beamish. An Irish stout with a strong aroma and espresso finish, Beamish is the slightly badder version of Guinness. Heavier on the nose and on the palate, it packs more flavor, but is still a session stout (4.10% ABV). We can't stress this enough: When you're trying to drink all day, you need to drink session beers. The trick is to have a bunch to cycle through so you don't become bored.
