To kick off the celebration, the brewery is opening at 1 pm so you can “get your shamrock on early.” They will tap two special beers. Mulley’s Dry Irish Stout, is a roasted, super dry stout served on nitro so it’s nice and creamy. They will also tap a fresh batch of their perennial favorite, Mulley’s Tavern Red. This beer is slightly roasty with notes of caramel and toffee, so it’s a little sweet.

Smoke Factory BBQ Food Truck will be on premises serving up its BBQ specials, which will no doubt pair perfectly with the beer. The brewery will also have its Peach Saison, ESB, Rye Pale Ale, Golden Nectar Pale Ale, and Neapolitan Porter. Cheers!
