Whether you were born Irish or just pretend to be for the beloved holiday, share your love for drinking and eating at City Tap House’s week-long St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans from March 11-17 where flutes of green bubbles and pints of Irish beer will be flowing all week.
A team from True North Ale Company will be in the house to bring a St. Patrick’s Day-meets-Taco Monday celebration to Fort Point. Showcasing Irish stout, True North will be handing out giveaways and complimentary tastings while our kitchen dishes out Guinness-braised short rib tacos ($15) hailed as “Patty’s Tacos.”
A tap takeover by Clown Shoes Brewing Company will feature eight specialty beers on tap. Order up the Banger Bites & Flights special and score a flight of Clown Shoes beer paired with an Irish banger sausage platter ($20).
They say that at the end of a rainbow is a leprechaun’s pot of gold, but a
“pot” of ice cream would be just as sweet as far as City Tap’s concerned. A themed Ice Cream Sundae Bar will be complete with Lucky Charms, green marshmallows, green M&Ms, rainbow striped sour candies, green sprinkles and more ($10 per serving).
Promo teams from Murphy’s Stout & Heineken will be in the house throughout the day with swag and giveaways to showcase their signature brews.
Guinness – which originated in the brewery of Arthur Guinness at St. James's Gate, Dublin, in 1759 – will be celebrating their taste of Emerald Isle by readying your stomachs for the long weekend ahead. Some lucky leprechauns will take home a commemorative glass if they purchase one of the frosty beers.
Pregaming is essential to any Irishman and on this weekend, it is for greater mankind. Trade in suds for whiskey by slugging down the Patty-O Whiskey Punch (whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup and orange juice topped with soda - $9); Jameson Breakfast Shots (Jameson, orange juice & butterscotch - $7); or Green Tea (Jameson, peach schnapps, soda & lemon juice ($9). To further line the stomach, there are Guinness-Infused Pancakes topped with Lucky Charms and housemade whiskey-syrup ($15); Corned Beef & Cabbage Spring Rolls ($10); Corned Beef & Cabbage Plate with broiled potatoes, carrots, Irish soda bread and stout mustard ($22); and Guinness-Battered Fish & Chips with cod, French fries and tartar sauce ($18). From 1-6pm, The Royal Furs will be entertaining the Irish and wannabe-Irish with a live set. Four-leaf clovers will be hidden in-and-outside of City Tap and those with any luck will take home a $100 gift card.
Opening at 9am for (liquid) brunch, early leprechauns will cash in on a special door prize. With a Jameson photo station to commemorate this day of debauchery, revelers will enjoy all of Saturday’s food and drink specials in addition to a Patty’s Breakfast Patty (corned beef, egg & Swiss breakfast sandwich with special sauce on a jumbo English muffin with breakfast potatoes - $10, available 9am-12pm).
