We’re only six months out from one of our favorite holidays of the year – St. Patrick’s Day, a time to celebrate Irish culture, spend quality time with friends and family, and enjoy a couple drinks. Since we can’t wait, we decided to round up a few of our favorite pubs and restaurants where you can mark the occasion on the weekend of Sept. 17.
These five spots are serving up drink specials with the most-awarded new whiskey on the market, Keeper’s Heart, a half-Irish whiskey that combines the best of Irish and American whiskey-making traditions.
Consider treating yourself to a classic Irish Mule or refreshing Celtic Lemonade at one of these Wisconsin bars.

O’Brady’s will open at 9 a.m. for breakfast, with drink specials running all day and food specials starting at 11 a.m. Plus, the bar will be serving up free pizza during the Packers game halftime!
