The Washington Post
St. Patrick’s month
Many Irish (and not-so-irish) bars are already making plans for St. Patrick’s Day: The holiday falls on a Friday for the first time since 2017, which should lead to larger crowds demanding pints and louder singalongs with “The Wild Rover.” But at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery near Baltimore, the party has already started. Through the end of March, there’s entertainment Thursday through Sunday, with pub quizzes, beer dinners, guided brewery tours, a tented “Irish Village,” and, of course, live music, with traditional sessions on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. and rockier bands on Friday and Saturday nights. Look out for new limited-release beers on tap each week, starting with an amber ale brewed with Irish breakfast tea.
When: Thursday through Sunday, through March 26.
Where: Guinness Open Gate Brewery, 5001 Washington Blvd., Halethorpe. guinnessbrewerybaltimore.com.
Admission: Free; prices for tastings and tours vary. Reservations recommended.
