The Craic and the Porter Black
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
You didn't think we'd let the day pass without comment did you?
We've got a busy day ahead of us, the pub(s) await our presence, so let's get right to the point.
Below please be pleased to find a keen and green Barstool Mountain St. Patrick's Day mix for your celebratory enjoyment. We've got Top 100 Drinking Song tunes, more than a little Shane MacGowan(with no apologies), American punks who want to be Shane (slight apologies), traditional pub fare, songs of the Nation, whiskey songs, drinking songs, drinking songs, and more drinking songs. We've even got a couple of shout-outs to our Celtic brothers and sisters in Scotland.
Raise a glass, then, to the non-Irish gentleman who chased the Pagans from the Isle.
This post is dedicated to the memory of Brendan Behan. Raconteur, rebel, author, and consumer of many a fine beverage.

Does anyone actually use the word "blarney" un-ironically? Didn't think so. Have a good day.
