Bars and businesses hosting green beer events in Central New York

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The yearly celebration is almost here! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, green beer events are back this year and approaching fast!

There’s nothing like Syracuse’s own, Coleman’s Green Beer Sunday! But, if you want to go to a new green beer event in Central New York this year, you do have other options.

Green beer is an American custom that has become a tradition in the U.S. to drink at St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.

This is because of an Irish-American physician and eye surgeon, Thomas H. Curtain, who invented green beer in 1914 for a St. Patrick’s Day party at the Schnerer Club of Morrisania in the Bronx. The doctor mentioned in an article released during that time, that the secret was adding a touch of blue dye to the beer and voila, green beer was invented.

This tradition has been celebrated for 110 years since, and in Syracuse, it’s being celebrated at a couple of locations.

Coleman’s Green Beer Sunday

Celebrate green beer at Coleman’s on Sunday, Feb. 25, for their annual Green Beer Sunday!

Coleman’s Green Beer parade will start at noon and music by Mere Mortals Band will start at 3:00 p.m. The event is free to get in but make sure to arrive early as lines form pretty quickly and can get quite long.

Make sure to bring lots of cash as well, because the celebration is mostly held outside and the outdoor bars only accept cash.

Home Team Pub Green Beer St. Patrick’s Special

If you can’t make it to Coleman’s Green Beer Sunday celebration, Home Team Pub in Liverpool is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day celebration later on with green beer.

“St. Practice Day” and a parade party are scheduled for Saturday, March 11 and on Friday, March 17 the bar will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

In honor of the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, the bar will have food and drink specials including some green beer for those who want to be extra festive.
