A cherished tradition in honor of the upcoming St. Patrickâ€™s Day holiday, the Blessing of the Beer and the Tapping of the Keg took place March 7.
Festivities began with a tour of the Bluegrass Brewing Companyâ€™s brewery, before Rev. Joe Fowler blessed all the kegs to be used at Oâ€™Sheaâ€™s Irish Pub on Baxter Avenue for the St. Patrickâ€™s Day parade celebration. A Tapping of the Keg party followed at Oâ€™Sheaâ€™s.
