First Annual St Patrick’s Day Blow Your Own Mug Event

First Annual St Patrick’s Day Blow Your Own Mug Event
Date: 3/17/2018 through 3/17/2018

St Paddy’s Day is coming up and we are ready to celebrate. Come join us Saturday March 17th for our first annual St Patrick’s Day Blow Your Own Mug Event. This is a 21 and over event only. Participants will work with our glassblowers to create a one of a kind “drinking glass”. Folks can choose to add a handle OR a shamrock button to their glass at no additional charge. This event will be more intensive than our previous events and will take longer to complete so with that in mind we will be taking reservations in 30 minute blocks stating at 10 am with the last slot available at 4:30. We will fill the day quickly so get in while you can. Please call 219-477-7783 to make your reservation. The cost of the event is $100 per person which includes a ticket for a cold Irish beer brewed and served by our friends at Ironwood Brewing Company.

ALSO, we will have one of a kind beer mugs blown by Hot Shop Valpo available for purchase all day. Even if you are not taking part in the blowing event you can come in and purchase your very own mug and have it filled with a beer while you are there. Each mug will be $45 which includes a ticket for a beer fill.

Come on out and wear the green!

Slainte chugat!
