Our Annual St. Patrick's Day Party at the Brewery
Monday, March 17 - 6:00 - 9:00 PM
Sorry, the St. Patrick's Day Party is now sold out.
On Monday, March 17, we'll be holding our annual Saint Arnold Meets St. Patrick Party. The big event for the evening is our Donegal Beard Growing Competition. Dozens of brave contestants have been growing out their facial hair since the beginning of the year, and one of them will take home an iPad. Along with the iPad, they will get the glory of being a beard growing champion.
For the evening, we'll be tapping a keg of Bishop's Barrel No. 5, our Bourbon Barrel Wee Heavy Scotch Ale that we originally released in October. The base beer of BB5 was Divine Reserve No. 4, which won the gold medal at the 2008 World Beer Cup in the Strong Scotch Ale category. If you didn't get a chance to try BB5 during it's initial release, consider this a St. Patrick's Day present. We'll also have some food available for purchase. All in all, it's a lot more fun than drinking green beer.
Admission is $28 per person and includes beer (including one 12 oz pour of BB5) and a commemorative pint glass. Attendance is limited, and this event sells out quickly every year.
Pub Nights at Saint Arnold
Friday March 7:
For this Pub Night, we'll be pulling out a big gun. For the first time at the brewery, you'll be able to purchase bottles of BB6, the latest release in our Bishop's Barrel series. Bishop's Barrel No. 6 is Pumpkinator aged in Appleton Estate 21-30 Year Rum Barrels. If you're a fan of Pumpkinator, you'll definitely love BB6. Learn more about BB6.
Here's the scoop. On Pub Nights, we open our tour hall from 5:00 - 10:00 PM strictly as a bar and let you choose what you want to purchase. There's no entry fee for the evening, so you can just choose beers by the individual glass or bottle. You've given us great feedback on them so far, so we'll be keeping them up on a monthly basis. Pub Nights are strictly 21 and up.
Each Pub Night, we'll have select Divine Reserves and Bishop's Barrels available, as well as the always awesome food from our kitchen. Check this page and our email newsletter to see the menu as each night approaches.

Fly Fishing Film Tour and Heroes on the Water Benefit
Thursday, April 17 at the Brewery
Are you a fishing and outdoor enthusiast? Then this event is for you. Every year the Fly Fishing Film Tour, or F3T, travels around the country bringing world class fly fishing films to local angler communities. We're partnering with our friends at the Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow to deliver the two films on a big screen right outside the brewery in the parking lot.
Your $25 ticket gets you entry into the event, your beers for the evening, and a portion of the ticket price will go to benefit Heroes on the Water. There will also be a silent auction during the first half of the event to help raise some additional fund for Heroes.
Check-in will begin at 6:00, the first film will begin promptly at 7:00 and the event runs until 9:30. There will also be food available for purchase from our kitchen during the event and this is also a BYOC (bring your own chair) event so please plan accordingly.
This event is brought to you with assistance from our friends at Fishing Tackle Unlimited.
Get your tickets here.

on Saturday, March 22
On Saturday, March 22, we'll be hosting our first ever Pub Crawl in San Antonio, and we're getting excited. If you've never participated in one of our Pub Crawls, here's how it'll work:
We'll utilize our usual open house schedule for the first four stops - this means you can visit them in any order. You'll get your ticket (it's free!) at whichever stop you decide to visit first, and from there you'll visit the rest of the stops. We will be handing the tickets out between 1:00 and 2:00 only, so make sure you get out there by 2:00.
At 6:00, everybody will gather at the final stop, and that's where we will award the prizes. The prize for completing the crawl is a handsome Saint Arnold Pub Crawl pint glass. We will have a large but limited supply. Designated drivers are always eligible for the award and encouraged to attend! Here's the layout:
Hit these spots between 1:00 and 6:00:
- Joe Blue's
- Stella Public House
- The Friendly Spot
- The Filling Station
At 6:00, head to the final stop:
- Alamo Street Eat Bar
