St. Patrick's Day at Great Lakes Brewing Co.

Why hello, Cleveland! It’s so good to see you again!

After temporarily closing our doors for the winter months, we are excited to finally share with you our brewpub reopening plans. Join us as we turn the taps back on for our annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration on Wednesday, March 17. Following St. Patrick’s Day, the brewpub and gift shop will operate with limited hours beginning Thursday, March 18.

To help protect our employee-owners and customers, the brewpub will offer indoor and outdoor dining service in accordance with health and safety guidelines as recommended by Governor DeWine, the Ohio Department of Health, and CDC. 

See all of our St. Patrick’s Day and reopening plans below.

Our number one priority is making sure your St. Patrick’s Day is safe and memorable. Because of ongoing health and safety regulations, this year’s event will be quite different than normal. Please read all of our plans carefully!

Rise and shine! Start your St. Patrick’s Day with our take on a traditional Irish breakfast. Each $35 ticket includes a 3 hour table reservation, your first pint of beer, and a hearty Irish-style breakfast. Reservations are required. The first 250 people to book a reservation will receive a complimentary Conway’s Irish Ale souvenir cup. See the complete menu and book your reservation here.

Following our reservation-only Irish breakfast, the brewpub bar, beer garden, and patio (weather permitting) will be open from 12PM – 10PM (bar close TBD). Join us for fresh pints of Conway’s Irish Ale, Wolfhound Stout, Irish-inspired food specials, and entertainment from:

Pipes & Drum Trio (12:00PM – 12:30PM)
Cleveland Firefighters Memorial Pipes & Drums (4:00PM)
Cats on Holiday (5:00PM – 6:30PM, 7:30PM – 9:00PM)

Reservations are strongly encouraged, but not required. Book your reservation here. Place a takeout order here.
