Kiss your friends, don your best green, and bring on the craic (that means fun and enjoyment in Gaelic, FYI): Tuesday, March 17, is St. Patrick’s Day.

Here are a selection of activities scheduled around the Grand Valley in celebration of this fun, Irish tradition.


Kannah Creek Brewing Company (1960 N. 12th St., Grand Junction) and Edgewater Brewery (905 Struthers Ave., Grand Junction) will host an all-day Irish celebration on Tuesday, March 17,. It will feature a costume contest, Irish-inspired food, and drink specials.

According to Kannah Creek’s spokeswoman Katlin Birdsall, Crossed Irons Irish Ale will be on tap along with Black’s Bridge Stout on nitrogen — which is “great for car bombs.”

Kannah Creek will also offer an Irish whiskey flight.

Both locations will offer a $25 gift card drawing for those who show up wearing lots of green.
