With a name like Green Bus Brewing you can’t expect them to not participate. They already have the best color scheme! Enjoy classic Celtic music with Black Market Haggis on March 17th at 7pm.

The Poppy

If you want a pint of Guinness from the tap, you’ll want to head to The Poppy. Located in the heart of downtown Huntsville, The Poppy is the first truly authentic British drinking experience in the area. Best of all, the Poppy plays home to 4 “Beer Engines,” a uniquely British dispensing device purposely built for dishing out traditional cask-conditioned ale. A mainstay of pubs in the UK and Ireland, a beer engine is a piston pump allowing oak casks to be retained in a cooled cellar below the bar. You are sure to find some delicious meals served up as well. Enjoy their beautiful patio space and unique decor.

St. Patrick’s Day Drag Bingo
