St. Patrick’s Day on the Trail

If any holiday belonged to beer, it would likely be St. Patrick’s Day!

In Northwest Arkansas, the craft breweries on the Fayetteville Ale Trail certainly celebrate like it is, with nearly half throwing their own parties to celebrate the day.

Keep it classic with green beer and potato soup, or branch out with a vinyl happy hour or Irish dancing – whatever works for you, as long as it gets you a beer on St. Patrick’s Day.

Gather your green and browse the list of brewery events for the St. Patrick’s holiday below:
