Who says you have to be Irish to enjoy a good stout or porter on St. Patrick’s Day?
Sure, Guinness is a fine choice, but we have so many options made right here in Hampton Roads.
Bold Mariner Brewing Company has a blueberry porter on tap. There’s just one keg, so you better move fast if you want a taste.
If you haven’t had Cowcatcher at Smartmouth Brewing Company yet, it’s a good week to try it. In the brewery, you can get it on nitro, too.

Commonwealth Brewing Company will have a whole Irish menu of food, plus an Irish cask beer on tap.

The Oozlefinch Craft Brewery will host the Fest of the Finch, featuring Moat Monster specials and two cask beers: one that’s Irish cream stout Moat Monster, and a green cask beer. Bull Island Brewing is releasing an Irish Coffee Altbier Friday in a firkin.
