Plenty O’Ways to Enjoy a Virtual St Patrick’s Day!

Irish or not Windsor Essex has many great opportunities for you to embrace your inner Leprechaun and celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day!

Drinks & Delivery! 

With plenty o’ options for local craft beer or whisky, your St. Patrick’s Day drink of choice can easily be made with products from any one of our Barrels Bottles Brews partners.  Grab a cold porter from Sandwich Brewing Co. or make your coffee Irish with Wolfhead’s Coffee Whisky to make your St. Patrick’s Day celebrate complete!  The day isn’t complete without a belly full of corned beef or Guinness stew so order up some traditional grub from one of our proud pubs serving up authentic Irish fare.  With weekly specials, Walkerville’s O’Maggios Kildare House and Olde Riverside’s Thompson House are ready to fill your bellies this St. Paddy’s Day and beyond.

Why not celebrate a bit o’history with your choice of beverage? Walkerville Brewery’s special Limited Edition beer celebrates the history, heritage and refurbishment of Windsor’s own Streetcar No. 351. This unique beer is an extra strong Imperial Stout, matured for 351 days in bourbon casks.  What’s more is that $1 from every bottle will go to support the Streetcar No. 351 project.  The Zug Island Porter from Chapter Two Brewing Co. is a chocolatey beer with toasty notes and a touch of caramel sweetness.  A softer carbonation contributes to the smooth mouthfeel of this seasonal favourite and makes it a perfect addition to your St. Patrick’s Day takeout!

Check out the the I💚PA Key Lime Beer Soap – another collaboration by GL Heritage Brewing with fabulous, local Faerhaven Soaps!  Infused with their American IPA and the very popular Key Lime scent, this limited run, all-natural large soap would be a welcome gift for your St. Patrick’s Day fans, March birthday friends or just for anyone who needs a little cheering up.  Another great pairing is Ocean Bottom Soap Company who has created the March Soap o’the Month combining Cucumber, Peppermint and Spearmint for an invigorating scent with a wee dram of FRANK Brewing Co. craft beer.  This soap embraces the minty freshness of St. Patrick’s Day and may just bring you the Luck o’the Irish.
