If there is an annual event on the calendar worth celebrating, you can count on Murray’s Brewery being in on the action.
St Patrick’s Day is no exception.
On Saturday, March 17, in honour of the Patron Saint of Ireland, the Port Stephens brewery will be pouring a special Irish ale and the kitchen will be serving popular Irish dishes.
There will also be a free concert by Micro Circus Duo from noon onwards. Led by Newcastle musician Greg McKew, Micro Circus duo will perform some Irish jigs, songs by Irish acts and mix it up with other popular songs.
“We’ve been working on how to get that Gaelic feeling for St Patrick’s Day,” brewer Sean Costigan said. “Previously we have done really good, simple stouts.
“But this year we thought we should mix it up a bit. So we’re brewing that other great beer from the Emerald Isle – an Irish red ale – just for the occasion.”
Entry is free but bookings are essential by phoning 4982 6411. The “beer bus” from Nelson Bay costs $5 each way.
