Kick off St Patrick’s Day early at Sidebar on Friday, March 13 from 4pm to close with the release of our Dagda Pan Gaelic Red Ale. Join us for an Irish celebration including corned beef & cabbage, real live Irish music (on the radio) and pints of Dagda. No cover charge, just good times in a great location. Dagda features a rich, malty body and underlying hoppiness. We use a small portion of black malt and a four-hour boil to give Dagda its ruddy red color and sturdy body. The beer is named after named after the “good god” of the Celts who was in important figure in Irish mythology. Tales depict the Dagda as a figure of immense power, armed with a magic club and associated with a cauldron. The club was supposed to be able to kill nine men with one blow; but with the handle he could return the slain to life. The cauldron was known as the Undry and was said to be bottomless, from which no man left unsatisfied. He also possessed Daurdabla, a richly ornamented magic harp made of oak which, when the Dagda played it, put the seasons in their correct order; other accounts tell of it being used to command the order of battle.
