4.    Drink a few Irish car bombs (Guinness with a shot of Jameson) to get more bang for your buck.
5.    Get imports like Guinness on sale by checking grocery chains the weekend before St. Patty’s Day.

“We started SaveOnBrew with the idea that we could save thirsty beer drinkers $100 or more over the course of a year just by pointing out brands on sale each week,” Davidson explains. “Holidays are when people tend to see even bigger savings because people tend to drink larger quantities celebrating all day and buy extra beer for friends. Saving money is not the ‘luck of the Irish.’ It just takes a bit of resourcefulness and the right tools.”
