St. Patrick’s Day is a big drinking and feasting holiday, with Irish beers, whiskeys, and food. Eater compiled the celebrations of Ireland’s patron saint around Austin to drink green and more. There’s bagpipe music over at Jack & Ginger, special pies at Tiny Pies, and so much green beer and even cider.

Keep up the drinking vibes with Austin’s best beer and brewery destinations, dives, bars and restaurants for whiskey, happy hours, and other cocktail spots, both iconic and new.

Everything below takes place on Thursday, March 17, unless otherwise noted. Know of any big St. Patrick’s Day bash or restaurant/bar specials that are missing below? Let Eater know through austin@eater.com

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Follow the business’s rules, be sure to wear a mask, and tip well.
