A cherished tradition in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday, the Blessing of the Beer and the Tapping of the Keg took place March 7.
Festivities began with a tour of the Bluegrass Brewing Company’s brewery, before Rev. Joe Fowler blessed all the kegs to be used at O’Shea’s Irish Pub on Baxter Avenue for the St. Patrick’s Day parade celebration. A Tapping of the Keg party followed at O’Shea’s.
