The Laughing Leprechaun Beer Tour Sláinte!
This is it folks. March is the month of St. Patrick’s Day!!! And we will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and some unique Irish beers all month long with The Laughing Leprechaun Beer Tour!
Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us on a guided walking beer tour through the quaint mountain town of Manitou Springs, Colorado, at the base of Pikes Peak. Along the way we’ll sample some of the finest Colorado craft beers, share a little bit of local history, do some storytelling and talk about the craft beer phenomenon!
This version of our “Original 1872” walking beer tour will feature some unique Irish Beers. A huge part of Irish tradition, the delicious stouts, ales and lagers of Ireland have become staples at most St. Patrick’s Day celebrations around the world. But leave your ideas of what Irish Beer is at home. The craft beer industry in Ireland in booming and you may be surprised with some of the new brews coming from the Emerald Isle. The Laughing Leprechaun Beer Tour promises some great Irish inspired beers!
This is a St. Patrick’s Day celebration and the Irish are known for singing, storytelling and drinking beer. How fun is that?! So, bring your best stories, be prepared to sing and we’ll supply the beer.
This old Irish proverb says a little more about what we would like to achieve during our tours …
“There are no strangers here, only friends you haven’t met yet.”
We’ll leave you with this centuries old Irish blessing which has endured through musical composition, word of mouth and even art…
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
DON’T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR BEST GREEN!!!
