Three Rivers Brewery, Farmington, NM

The Tap Room will be the site of the annual St. Patrick’s Day Mug Club party. What’s a mug club? It’s a loyal group of regulars, all of whom have their own beer mug. Local post-rock band, Cinematica, will play, keeping the party going all evening long. Lots of games to play including pool, darts, foosball, shuffleboard, plus there’s a big arcade full of video games. Twelve handcrafted brews on tap, as well as seasonal choices. Giveaways for those who participate.

Hidden Tap, Ruidoso, NM

If you’re feeling the luck of the Irish, this midtown hideaway is like discovering the pot-of-gold at the end of a rainbow. With more than 30 craft beers on tap, you can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with enthusiasm. Irish nachos, made with potato slices instead of chips, are a perfect match with a glass of Irish beer, Irish coffee, a shamrock sour or an Irish car bomb cup, a mix of Guinness and Irish whiskey. Sheppard’s Pie a specialty of the house.

Kelley’s Bar & Grill, Clovis, NM

Did you know, the odds of finding a four-leaf clover are one in 10,000? It’s unlikely you’ll find one at this bar, but what you will find is great food, a fully stocked bar and a lively atmosphere. There’s always a party, here, and on St. Pat’s Day it’s all about celebrating the Emerald Isle. Shoot some pool. Dance a jig. Sip an Irish coffee. Fill your growler with beer and have a bowl of Irish stew.

Irish-American Society, Albuquerque, NM

This Society was formed to further Irish-American relations through education, travel, camaraderie, recreation, charity, music and dance. All of that is accomplished at their annual St. Patrick’s Day party. Plus, there’s food—traditional corned beef, cabbage and potato stew and Irish soda bread. Hot dogs and chips for the kids. Entertainment for the evening includes the Celtic bands, Irish Step Dancers, the New Mexico Fire and Police Pipes and Drums, and more. Tickets available online.
