Big Changes for Spring

After recovering from St. Patrick's Day at an Irish brewery it is time to get to work. With several new beers planned for summer and beyond and an expanding region the brewery is being prepared for a tunnel pasteurizer. The new equipment will make the beer more consistent on store shelves all over the midwest. The downside is the thing is huge. As you can see we are tearing things up to make it fit. Stay tuned for the "pasteurizer party" coming later in April.
The brewery isn't the only thing getting a face lift this Spring. The outdoor patio area is getting a much-needed makeover that is scheduled to be complete in about two weeks. New walls and furniture and speakers will add to the outside atmosphere. The snow and freezing may slow us a bit but we'll get there. (Left: Sean posing for a photo while working on the wall.")

St. Pat's at O'Malley's

St. Pat's 2009 was a cause for a big celebration. More than 600 folks joined us yesterday. We very much appreciate the support and all the fun you brought to Weston. A full day of Irish music, beer and food left all of us a little worn out as seen in the photo. Justin and Pete work themselves into a stooper feeding corned beef and cabbage to the masses. But don't worry about us, we will be back in action this weekend with Flannigan's Right Hook. They are a big favorite at the Pub and always bring a crowd.
For those of you who might be worried. There will be plenty of Leapin' Leprechaun beer on tap at O'Malley's. We are out of the seasonal bottles, but the popularity of the new blonde ale will keep it on tap.
