Bring on the Brews at St. Pat’s Parade O’Pints

On March 16 in Ballard’s Brewery District, you will be able to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with all your favorite local breweries. This year, 12 breweries are coming together for St. Pat’s Parade O’Pints: a tour of all the specialty Irish ales in the area.

Participants can hop on the double-decker bus (courtesy Hale’s Ales) running from 2 to 6 p.m. and stop at every one of the five pick-up and drop-off points to make visiting all 12 breweries a breeze. If you’re interested in riding the bus, you will need to purchase a $5 bracelet that can be bought upon boarding or from any of the participating breweries.

All proceeds will support the Seattle Firefighters Pipe & Drums, a band that is dedicated to honoring fallen firefighters.
