St. Patrick's Beer Tasting & Historical Walking Tour of "Irish Hill"
Fri, March 17, 2017, 3:00 PM – 5:30 PM PDT
Last year was a blast, so we're doing it again!
Join us for the 2nd Annual St. Patrick's Day tour of the Dogpatch led by San Francisco City Guides! Once called "Irish Hill", the Dogpatch became home to thousands of working class Irish, Scottish and English immigrants during the 1860's. Learn about the infamous neighborhood and visit historical sites during this 1.5hr walking tour.
The tour will begin at Triple Voodoo Brewery, where you will partake in the Irish pastime of drinking beer! Owner Greg Kitchen will lead a tasting of two of his favorite beers and give an overview of the brewing process. Plus, get $1 off pints and $5 pilsners.
[ We recommend arriving at 3pm for enough time to do the tasting, and perhaps a beer for the road. The tour will depart at 4pm sharp, and will meander through the Dogpatch until 5:30pm. ]
The tour will end at Spicer on 3rd, where you will receive a complimentary canvas tote and Irish snacks. Plus, you will receive 15% off store-wide, including handbags, gifts, jewelry & more.
