Bars and breweries all over the country are gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day weekend, and one historical brewery in Terre Haute is using the celebration to begin a new chapter.
This weekend, the Terre Haute Brewing Company, the nation’s oldest currently functioning brewery, is re-branding.
With Sunday also coinciding with the 85th anniversary of the brewery’s reopening after prohibition, the company decided to host it’s first St. Patrick’s Day party.
“We’ve got all this cool history, but we’ve got all this cool re-branding,” general manager Jason Foust said. “So (we are) reinventing ourselves, in a way, with even a new menu in the tap room, the new brand. So it’s a big day for us on top of just 85 years, which is really cool.”
As part of the celebration, the brewing company is taking its core four craft beers and releasing them as cans. Each can has a story and a close tie to Terre Haute’s history and lore.
The core four includes American Lager, Stiffy Green IPA, Wango Tango and Velvet Cream Milk Stout.
Craft beer enthusiasts won’t want to miss out as the brewery not only celebrates history, but makes history at the same time.
