We’re all Irish on St. Patrick’s Day and we can celebrate Ireland’s patron saint who drove the snakes off the Emerald Isle (some say on to planes, but that’s another story) with union libations and hearty fare.
You can propose a St. Patrick’s Day toast with these fine whiskies—including some tasty single barrels—from the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) represented distilleries.
Budweiser American Ale
Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve and Blue Board Pale Ale
Miller Genuine Draft
Miller High Life
For a touch of global solidarity, the Irish-imported favorite Guinness is brewed at facilities where workers are represented by half a dozen unions of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, including the Services Industrial Professional and Technical Union (SIPTU) and the Guinness Staff Union (GSU).
What would St. Patrick’s Day be without a nice slab of corned beef and corned beef products from Saag's that carry the UFCW union label?
You can even make Irish and Irish-for-a-day eyes smile with a union-made St. Patrick’s Day card from American Greetings brought to you by some 500 IBT members, print and produce cards at the firm’s Bardstown, Ky., plant.
Paint the town green.
