With the first parade honoring Saint Patrick held on the streets of New York City just a few years prior to the American Revolution, it’s no wonder that this Irish Holiday is has become so celebrated in America. Of course these were Irish Soldiers sworn allegiance to the British Army, but also a great reminder of the melting pot that is our culture. Saint Patrick is known as one of the most successful Christian missionaries in history and this St. Patty’s day is a day to celebrate and remember his life. It has throughout history been a day of feasting and drinking and as it falls within Lenten it was also known as a welcome break from the restrictions of lent.
At our Ogunquit Events, it’s no wonder we celebrate St. Patty’s Day with wearing the color green (Go Irish) and enjoying a few beers. Maine is a state that producing 8 gallons of beer per capita (adults of drinking age) and boasts over 45 craft breweries. With local and sustainable suppliers there’s no better place to enjoy your St. Patti’s Day brew!
Beer is deep rooted in the history of man and is said to have been produced up to 7,000 years ago. It’s also noted as one of the first-known biological engineering tasks to utilize the process of fermentation. No wonder it’s in the Top Three most frequently consumed beverages in the world and a great indulgence at a number of annual Ogunquit Events.
