What are some good Irish beers?

Other than Guinness, what are some popular/good Irish beers? I wanted to have an Irish-themed menu for St. Patrick's day complete with the beer, but I'm not all that fond of Guinness and am looking for alternatives.

Kilt Lifter Stout! Too bad it is from a niche micro brewrey, Mouilins, and from California. I just happen to know a guy.

Ok, so it's not from Ireland, but it does have a great name so I think it counts. Iron Horse Brewery's Irish Death is one beer that I'm absolutely crazy about.

Saw a 4 pack of sixes at Costco a week or so ago. If I remember right, most of those were in the case.
