Now if you ask me, that is a great deal for a pint of Guinness. I am a big fan of dark beers and stouts and I am a big fan of Guinness but I am also a cheap person, so here is a great trick to get a great deal on a pint of Guinness.

Buy it in the store and drink it at home. I recently got an 8 pack of Guinness for $9.99 plus deposit and it came with a $5 digital rebate. So in the end, I ended up playing under $10 for 8 Guinnesses! That is what I call a deal.

No matter what you drink or how you celebrate St. Patrick's Day today, make sure to have fun and be safe.
