McGeary’s Irish Pub


St. Patrick’s Day is about the beer, and not many places can rival the extensive beer selection at McGeary’s. Located in Albany’s Clinton Square, McGeary’s offers more than 40 bottles and 26 beers on tap. And, of course, green beer for St. Patrick’s Day is a given.


The City Beer Hall


With 16 craft beers on tap, the City Beer Hall, located on Howard St., is for the St. Patty’s Day drinker that doesn’t just want to stick to a stereotypical Guinness. Oh, and did I mention that they have a mechanical bull? Because they do. And you can make an idiot out of yourself riding it.


Pearl Street Pub


Pearl Street Pub does Kegs and Eggs the right way (and not the “let’s stomp holes in this Nissan Altima” way) by starting the day off at 9 AM with $2 egg sandwiches and $2 green beers before noon. If that doesn’t equal the start of a St. Patrick’s Day to remember (or not remember), then I don’t know what does.


Graney’s Bar & Grill


Not to be confused with Graney’s Stout (downtown on Broadway),this is the best little known spot in town. In fact, you’ll probably find a lot of friends here on parade day,  with green beer in hands.


Katie O’Brynes


Katie O’Byrnes is always a fun time – and PopCrush is going to be hanging out there for our St Patrick’s Day party with Donny and Amy
