St. Patrick’s Day Drinks

This year, St. Patrick’s Day takes place on Friday, March 17. That’s good news for anyone who otherwise would have to go to work the next day. Here are some choices for drinks and fun:

John Martin’s

Having triumphantly reopened on Miracle Mile last year, John Martin’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Street Festival is also back for its 30th year! Running from 4 pm until midnight, there will be live music, bar stations, food, and more. For every shot of Irish whiskey you buy, you’ll get a free Harp Lager. Admission is free but viewing deck and drink packages are also available for $118.80. RSVP to get a free shot glass when you enter the festival.

Located at the corner of Salzedo St. and Miracle Mile.

Yard House

This year for St. Patty’s Day, Yard House is serving up specialty drinks, including green beer and Jameson Mules, and an Irish-inspired menu all day long. Perfect for those who want to celebrate without mixing with the big crowds at an outdoor festival.

320 San Lorenzo Ave. 

Bay 13 Brewery and Kitchen

To celebrate the luck of the Irish — and the Australians — Australian brewpub Bay 13 is releasing a new and improved beer on St Patty’s Day: The Irwin, named after the legendary conservationist Steve Irwin, who happened to be of Irish descent. The Irish red ale has gone through many iterations at Bay 13 throughout the years, with its unique toffee and caramel flavoring standing out. All beers, including The Irwin, will be half-off from 4 to 6 pm.
