The Haps and the Hops: Saint Patrick’s Day

Green on the streets, green on the people, and green in the beer. Might get a ‘wee pinch if you’re not wearing some. But why green? Saint Patrick’s day is the day that commemorates the death of Ireland’s Saint Patrick, as well as Ireland itself. The legend goes that Saint Patrick often used three-leaf clovers to explain his beliefs to people of other faiths, and thus the symbol of Ireland began. Green was worn...
