FEELING IRISH? CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK’S DAY AT THE NOAH WEBSTER HOUSE
On March 13 and 14, 2020 at 6 p.m., the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society will host A Taste of Ireland in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, featuring Irish fare, craft beer, and live music.
Enjoy a St. Paddy’s family-style dinner, featuring Irish soda bread and butter, salad and pickled beets, Irish Beef & Stout Stew, and apple crisp for dessert. A special treat this year, two guest breweries will be taking over the Noah Webster House tavern!
Stony Creek Brewery of Branford, CT, will be onsite on Friday, March 13 with samples from their brewery and a special cask of real ale made for this event. Stony Creek is known for their fusion of clean, bold and aggressive West Coast flavors and East Coast balance and drinkability, what Stony Creek calls “aggressively laid back beer.”
On Saturday, March 14, Hanging Hills Brewing Company will be taking over the taproom, presenting selections from their Hartford, CT brewery. Hanging Hills’ use of locally sourced ingredients (hops from CT, barley grown and malted in the Pioneer Valley), time tested techniques, and a hard-earned attention to detail allows them to utilize the creative side of their brewing skills.
Live Entertainment — After dinner there will be live entertainment. The Jovial Two, singers of folk songs of the sea, shore, and pub will perform on Friday, March 13.
On Saturday, March 14, Rick Spencer and Dawn Indermuehle of Catfeather Art & Music will perform a mix of entertaining and amusing songs from the Irish and Irish-American traditions.
Games — After dinner, guests are invited to step into the lantern-lit c.1720 historic birthplace of Noah Webster and try their hand at historic tavern games of his era.
Tickets for this event are $45 per person, or $40 for museum members. Advance registration is required and available at noahwebster.yapsody.com. Entry includes dinner, one complimentary drink (beer or wine), live entertainment, and tavern games. Additional beer and wine will be available for purchase.
