Happy St. Patrick's Day! (Lá Fheile Pádraig sona dhaoibh!) from our resident historian, Laura Fitzachary – though this mini-sode is more mythological than historical. Regaling you all with an origin story of St. Patrick's banished snakes and an epic battle he had with their mother, she washed this bit of bonus content down with an experimental ale. As part of their Spree Series, The White Hag released the very seasonal (Paddy's Day) Shamrock Shake Ice Cream Ale…perfect for this episode because it is literally green! Please remember to drink responsibly while stocks last!
