This year’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities are in full swing, and Evansville has no shortage of places to celebrate. Breweries, taverns, pubs, and bars across the city are serving up specialty drinks this week in honor of St. Patty. Try your “luck” with some of these cocktails and brews.
101 S.E. First St., Ste 1
Stop by Myriad Brewing Company’s St. Patrick’s Day event and try its “812” cream ale, poured from an entire keg dyed green. The Green 812 is one of Myriad’s lighter beers and is easy to drink, so even those who are new to craft beer will want to give this a sip. Enjoy your Green 812 with a special Irish menu served by Pappa Bear’s Catering from Dewig Meats in Haubstadt, Indiana.
209 N. Wabash Ave.
Damsel Brew Pub is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day celebration with classic Irish food and drinks. On tap is Damsel’s house-made Irish red ale “Pat,” an amber-colored beer with caramel sweetness, better than anything you could find at the end of the rainbow. Damsel Brew Pub will also have Guinness pints and pitchers on tap and $5 specials on shots of Irish whiskey such as Jameson and Proper 12. Complete your celebration with a meal of corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes for $14.99.
