Things that (P)inspire Me: Beer Recipes

***Check out the other “things that (p)inspire me”.. there are so many… 

With St. Patty’s day coming up, I thought I would share a few beer recipes that I’ve Pinned recently (surely you see the correlation).  As a true Irishwoman, I enjoy beer by itself (I’m required to say that, lest that I defend my ancestors), but beer can be especially fun when mixed with other things.  All of these recipes are quick, easy, and require little to no culinary skill (it’s beer!).

Per usual, click on the image for a link back to the source website….

…and always drink and DIY responsibly.
