Happy St. Patrick's Day!
LIBeerGuide wishes you many blessings on the feast day of the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick.  One of our favorite Irish toasts is: "May you live to be 100 -- with one extra year to repent!"  

Long Island St. Patrick's Parades

Marching season is in full swing with a dozen parades already having been held across Long Island, spanning from Mineola to Westhampton Beach.  But there are still many chances to enjoy bagpipers and marching bands, along with a pint at your favorite pub:

Irish Cuisine for St. Patrick's Celebrations

There are many fine Irish pubs and restaurants across Long Island and you can find a complete listing on  Most of these pubs focus on staples like shepherds pie and fish and chips.  

But there are Irish restaurants and gastropubs that are going beyond the staples to elevate Irish cuisine, including J.A. Heneghan's Tavern in Point Lookout (Dijon mustard-crusted pork chop with colcannon) and O'Hara's Ale House & Grill in Port Washington (corned beef sliders with pickles).  

Check out specials on Guinness and other Irish beers at Brookville Beer in Hempstead, 
featuring one of Nassau County's best craft and imported beer selections.
