Below is a list of our top picks for this year's festival celebrating all things Guinness and the Patron Saint of Ireland!
If you're looking for the fountain of youth in Aspen, we think you've come to the right place. Pack a bikini and head over to 39 Degrees at the Sky Hotel for the ultimate St. Patrick's Day party. DJ Maui Babe, in from New York City, will make a special appearance starting at 3 p.m. to get the party started. Drink specials include $4 green beer, $5 Guinness, $4 Jameson shots and $7 Irish coffee.
Aspen Brewing Company will celebrate St. Patrick's Day with live après music from the Natural Disasters. As always, pints are $3.50 and pitchers are $12 from 5-7 p.m.
Justice Snow's will serve Guinness and lamb stew, corned beef and cabbage, or fish and chips with a pint of Guinness for $17. The bar will be pouring Irish Whiskey cocktails and there will be live authentic Celtic music from the Crowlin' Ferlies starting at 9 p.m.
Finbarr's will offer a $1 off Guinness special as well as a special on Irish whiskey. They plan on adding traditional Irish dishes to their menu for the celebration as well.
Ski right in to the party! At the base of Ajax, The Little Nell's Chair 9 will have Jameson in house passing out shots.
Cap off your St. Paddy's Day celebrations with The Naked and Famous at Belly Up!
