How to Enjoy: Mary Beth Vultee from our Food, Innovation and Trends team enjoys Dubliner straight from the package with Irish soda bread and a smear of marmalade to bring out its nutty notes. Don’t forget a glass of Guinness beer, of course.**

How to Enjoy: Slather a slice with rich and creamy Kerrygold butter or top with sliced Dubliner cheese for a savory, satisfying snack. Prepared Foods and Bakery VP Rashne Desai suggests keeping the toppings simple to let the bread’s flavor and texture shine.

Buying Tip: Corned beef, which is made from brisket that has been pickled in brine, is available in our Meat department for a limited time only.

How to Enjoy: Alongside or mixed together with corned beef and cabbage. If boiling your potatoes, try gently smashing them with a fork on your plate. For mashed potatoes, take them to the next level with chopped fresh parsley and grated Dubliner cheese.

How to Enjoy: The secret to the perfect Guinness? Nailing the pour. Here’s how Global Beer and Spirits Buyer Mary Guiver does it: Pour the beer into a tulip glass held at a 45-degree angle. (Be sure to watch for the famed cascading nitrogen bubbles!) Pour until the glass is three-fourths full, then let rest before topping off with the remaining beer.

How to enjoy: Mary Guiver likes to sip Irish whiskies on their own to appreciate their flavor notes — serve them neat or on the rocks with a couple of ice cubes. If you want to have some fun, try an Irish-inspired cocktail such as a classic Irish Coffee (which never goes out of style).**
