Made by Firestone Walker Brewing Company in Paso Robles, California.
If you enjoy the dark coloring and deep, deep flavor of a traditional glass of Guinness, you’ll want to give Parabola a try. Created by a California brewing company, Parabola is a barrel-aged beer that’s dark and intense. And it’s actually ranked as one of the world’s top beers.
Technically, Parabola isn’t an Irish beer – it’s a Russian imperial oatmeal stout. But don’t let that dissuade you from including it on your St. Patrick’s Day menu. This beer is aged inside of bourbon barrels for a year to develop a flavor of roasted malt, charred oak, and bourbon with hints of vanilla. It looks just like a traditional Irish stout, but it offers a unique and silky taste.
