A Very Irish STL Day

March 12th, 2020 by

blog headerThis Saturday is Pi Day, aka 3.14 Day, aka STL Day… And it is also the ideal date for a full day of celebrating St. Paddy’s! When everything aligns like this, you just have to make the most of it, and we are ready to do just that.

For everyone feeling moved by the Irish spirit, we will have three fantastic Irish beer styles available. Our flagship Irish Red Ale with Honey is a crowd pleaser, featuring a gorgeous rosy amber color and lots of wildflower honey for a smooth and easy finish (5.5% ABV).

The first is a creamy Nitro version, a hot request from our patrons for years that we are finally delivering on (6% ABV). As this has been in demand for so long, it definitely won’t last long. The second option is a traditional Irish Stout aged in Tullamore Dew barrels for a lighter-bodied, special occasion beer (10% ABV).

All of those tasty Irish beer options are going to need some festive eats. We are excited to have our good friend Farmer Jeff from “Alpacas of Troy” coming to the Taproom at 5 PM with his specialty bratwurst cart. Jeff is a master of turning premium quality meats into internationally inspired sausages and brats. This Saturday he is focusing his menu on the UK with a “Bangers and Mash” special. If you aren’t familiar, this is a traditional British dish comprised of sausages and mashed potatoes. It will be delicious on it’s own and even more so alongside a beer. German brats will also be on the menu if that’s more your speed.

Three great Irish style beers, delectable food… but that’s not all. Because it’s also March 14th (3.14), we definitely need to honor the great city of St. Louis. This community has embraced and supported us and we are dang proud to be part of it. In cooperation with STLMade, we are going to sell pints of Irish Red Ale for $3.14 on Saturday!

Honestly, what more could you want out of a Saturday in mid-March? See you Saturday!
