Craft beer, locally made steins, traditional Irish fare and live music are on tap for the St. Patty’s Day Stein & Brine Party in downtown Waynesboro.
The Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro (CAC) will host the party from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, March 13, at its gallery studio, 13 South St., half a block from center square in downtown Waynesboro.
Partygoers may choose a handcrafted keepsake stein created by CAC guild members and select pours of craft beers from GearHouse Brewing Co.
The menu features traditional corned beef brined from scratch by Chef Mike Mahr, with accompaniments. Lively music by Brian Forberger will add to the Irish atmosphere. Nonalcoholic beverages also will be available.
“It’s always a fun event,” said Mary Ashe-Mahr, executive director of the Nicodemus Center for Ceramic Studies, which operates the CAC. “St. Patty’s Day merges music, arts and community with great food and drink. It’s a perfect fit for our mission.”
Tickets, which cost $30 per person, can be purchased at ceramics-nccs.org or at the studio. Ordering in advance is recommended since there are only a limited number of tickets available.
Proceeds will benefit the Nicodemus Center for Ceramic Studies (NCCS), a nonprofit organization. In addition to the CAC, NCCS operates a pottery studio on the Penn State Mont Alto campus. The pottery studios offer guild membership; public classes for children, adults and groups; and an outreach initiative for children, seniors and those with differing abilities in the community.
