St. Patrick’s Day Events, 3rd Annual Maple
Madness, The Learned Pint Speaker Series, & More!
March brings lots of exciting events to the brewery –
some annual traditions and some new! We’ll be kicking off a speaker
series titled The Learned Pint, where we’ll be bringing in three
experts on three different dates to share their expertise on nurturing our
environment and our spirits this spring. The end of the month brings maple
sugaring and all its sweet goodness, including our third annual Maple
Madness event with local sugar house Syrup by the Sea on the
Sunday of NH Maple Weekend. And, next week, we’re sure to all be just a little
Irish as we welcome St. Patrick’s Day with a pre-party featuring an authentic
Irish music session on Thursday and a culinary celebration on the 17th with a
special beer flight, Irish menu specials, and more.
Thursday, March 15th, 11am-9pm: Pre-St
Get a jump (or a jig, or a reel) on your St Patrick’s
Day plans at our Pre-St Patrick’s Day Party,
when we’ll be unveiling our very first Irish
Red Ale – a mild classic Irish Red crafted with balance in
mind – a touch of roasted malts to give it a gorgeous reddish rust color and a
light caramel sweetness. Just enough Mt. Hood and Willamette hops to add some
light citrus and tea notes. And a balanced body to make it appropriate to
pair with meaty Irish stews and pies, yet still remain highly drinkable and
From 6:30-8:30pm, we’ll host an authentic Irish
session with Penhallow.
A traditional celtic band centered in Portsmouth, Penhallow consists
of veteran session players who frequent the many Irish sessions around the
seacoast and beyond.
And it wouldn’t be a celebration of all things Irish
without the food! Look for traditional Irish menu specials, such as a reuben,
lamb stew made with our delicious Stout Stout, and of course our Shepherd’s Pie!
This event is free and for all ages.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
