Blue & Gray Does Green

Saint Patrick's Day is this coming Saturday, March 17. That means it's time for the 10th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival at Blue & Gray Brewery.

The parade starts at noon, followed by an afternoon of Irish song and dance. The antique historic railroad cars of the National Railway Historical Society you see on the way to the brewery will be open for tours beginning at 10:00am. A "traditional" lunch of corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes will be available for purchase, as well as plenty of Blue & Gray beer. The Lee's Retreat Brewpub will be open for lunch for those preferring an inside meal. The brewery's infamous bourbon oak barrel-aged Russian imperial stout, Minor Dementia will also go on sale this day.

This event is free and family friendly. The celebration is also a fund raiser for local volunteer Fire & Rescue units. Fun times, great beer, and a worthy cause!


Details and advance meal ticket information is here.


  1. I've been researching some Irish beers to try this month. That's about as Irish as it gets in this German-filled area.

    1. Irish, it's all in the spirit. :-)

      Not Irish, but hopefully your celebrations will be brightened by the brown truck delivery in a few days. Cheers!
