Fast food joint introduces ‘Irish beer shake’ in lead up to St. Patrick’s Day


With only 46 days left until St. Patrick’s Day, the Irish themed food products have already begun to emerge.

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Inc are selling a new limited edition ‘Irish Beer Shake’ which includes a blend of Guinness, Jameson, and chocolate ice cream, priced around $5.

“I tried one. It tasted like a drink I had probably made in college, after I was already pretty drunk,” food blogger Jenn Wohletz wrote.

“The shake is amazing. If you like Guinness you're going to really like this shake,” one Facebook user wrote on the official Red Robin page.

This is not the first time the burger joint has blended a popular beer with ice cream. Last year they launched a Sam Adams Octoberfest draft shake made with soft serve vanilla ice cream, vanilla syrup and caramel.

They also released a Winter Beer Shake, made with Samuel Adams Winter Lager, cinnamon spice, and a hint of citrus.

Every year McDonald’s also release a seasonal green ‘Shamrock Shake’ to celebrate the March 17 holiday.
