Breweries in Vermont for St. Patrick’s Day

Everyone knows that the drink of the day on St. Patrick’s Day is beer. Whether you’re a fervent fan or not, finding a delicious beer in the area on this day is, well, almost mandatory.

Fortunately, there are many wonderful breweries throughout the state and especially in the Manchester area. You’ll always find different tastes, styles, and delicious local flavors at every turn.

If you plan on being in Manchester Village, Vermont or the surrounding areas on St. Patrick’s Day, here are some great events in the area to look forward to:

McGrath’s Irish Pub

Not far from Manchester Village is Killington, where you’ll find McGrath’s Irish Pub. Here, Guinness is always on tap, and there are tons of Irish whiskeys at the bar to choose from as well. Enjoy some authentic Irish fare while you’re in town too. Irish-American dishes like Guinness stew, the Irish Reuben, and bangers & boxty are all delicious here.

Mount Snow Skiing

Head a bit south from Manchester to Mount Snow for a St. Patrick’s Day Ski! On March 17th, you’ll be able to ski to the best Irish music, blasting over the speakers. Get there early, and you can enjoy some “eggs and kegs” for breakfast. Stay into the afternoon for a “Pot O’ Gold” scavenger hunt too. You could win a season ski pass!

Parade for St. Paddy’s Day in Bennington

Everyone should see an Irish parade on St. Patrick’s Day. In Bennington, the annual parade starts at 1pm, but there are also pre-festivities at 10am. Enjoy a delicious Irish breakfast at that time, watch the parade, and then celebrate with classic Irish drinks, fare, and entertainment in the afternoon!
