A Sample of Ireland in Michigan's Little Bavaria
Drinking and feasting in Frankenmuth for St.Patrick’s Day is a great way to kick off this soon-to-be spring season.

GO GREEN TO CELEBRATE IN STYLE

It’s time to go green this St.Patrick’s Day. Recycle your old clothes and shop for new ones. To keep up with the festivities, shop for traditional Irish garb and other Guiness goodies at our local, Irish, retail store, ‘Funky Skunk.’ Located in River Place, Funky Skunk is known around Frankenmuth for its Irish knits, hats, jewelry, and gifts. It will leave you feeling like you took a quick trip to Ireland.

BRING ALONG YOUR BIERPASS

Skip on over to the Frankenmuth Visitor Center to pick up your Bavarian Bierpass. What is a Bierpass? It is a passport for a ‘spirit’ filled tasting trip around Michigan’s Little Bavaria. When a qualifying drink purchase is made at one of the participating establishments, your passport will be stamped. Once 15 stamps have been collected, passports can be turned in at the Visitor’s Center for a limited edition t-shirt. How can you not sip and sample your way through different beers on St.Patrick’s day?

SAY CHEESE...I'M THINKING IRISH CHEDDAR

Get cheesy on St.Patrick’s Day. Eat, drink, and taste your way on over to the Frankenmuth Cheese Haus, featuring Irish favorites. Irish whiskey cheddar, Irish cheddar, Welsh white cheddar, and dubliner are all possibilities for you and your tastebuds. Now that’s what I call the “luck of the Irish!”

IRISH WHISKEY FOR THE WIN

Hop, skip, and jump somewhere over the rainbow into Frankenmuth’s pot of GOLD! What might this include? Irish whiskey, cocktails, spirits, and Irish food specialties, of course! Visit Zehnder’s Tap Room, Michigan on Main Bar & Grill, Prost, Tiffany’s, T-Dub’s to find your favorite Frankenmuth pour this St.Patrick’s day.
