Cakes, stews, cocktails, breads...you never know where Guinness might be hiding! St. Patrick’s Day is our favorite excuse to consume this iconic stout in as many ways as possible. We found five festive recipes to take you from breakfast to dessert, packing a punch of Guinness’ rich, roasty flavor all along the way.

Start your day with this sudsy twist on the classic brunch cocktail. In her unique recipe, Mandy Kellogg Rye adds Guinness to soften and compliment the spice of tabasco sauce and Horseradish. Turn this beer lovers' Bloody Mary into a full meal with bacon, pearl onions, pickles, mozzarella, or artichoke hearts. And don't forget your favorite light beer as a sidecar!

2. Guinness Glazed Nuts

For a crunchy midday treat, snack on a bowl of these sweet and salty peanuts. Coated and baked in a mixture of Guinness, sugar, vanilla, and salt, they will probably disappear before you can say “Luck of the Irish...”

3. Guinness Braised Pork Ribs

Straight from the Guinness kitchen itself, these ribs are slow cooked in Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, a brew made with extra hops for a bolder, smokier, more bitter taste. Onions, thyme, and bay leaves lend a timeless, hearty flavor.

Guinness Onion Rings

4. Guinness Battered Onion Rings

It isn’t a holiday unless some indulgently greasy side dish is involved. Right? Right. What makes these onion rings especially satisfying is the fact that they can be made with simple pantry staples like honey, mustard, flour...and Guinness, of course.
