A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out to all our patrons, sponsors, vendors and the amazing Pub staff for making the 8th Annual Barrington Celtic Fest a monstrous success!  It was our second best St. Patrick's Day celebration ever, only topped by that Saturday in 2012 when it was 79 degrees outside! 

March 15, 2018

During the Barrington Celtic Fest our website updates will be on temporary hiatus.  After the Friday morning post the next update will be on Monday March 19th.  Thank you for your understanding and hope you can make it here for a fun weekend!

Beer announcements: we now have Murphy's Irish Stout back on draft, and it should hold a relatively permanent tap handle spot from here on out.  Also, our March Beer of the Month is Sam Adams New Englaind IPA, just $5 draft pints all month long and during Celtic Fest!

ONE WEEK AWAY from the big festival!  However, we don't want to let this other important event slip by in the excitement...Happy Eight Year Anniversary to us! We sincerely thank the surrounding community and all of our patrons for the many years of tremendous support!  To honor the day, we're featuring our famous Denny Reuben for just $8!  This also honors a great man who has helped make all of these years in business possible, “patriarch” Denny McGonigal.  The sandwich is one of our best selling items and was named after him.

March 2, 2018

Our January Beer of the Month is quite appropriate for the weather - Sam Adams Cold Snap"The crisp character of this lively unfiltered White Ale gets a kick from a bright blend of spring spices. Orange peel and plum add subtle sweetness, while coriander contributes a peppery bite, creating a refreshing flavor that signals spring is on its way." Enjoy $4.50 pints all month long!

January 1, 2018

On behalf of the entire Pub staff & ownership, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours (or as is said in Gaelic, "Athbhliain faoi mhaise duit"). With an improving economy and great patron support, 2017 turned out to be a good year in many ways... which of course included the opening of Remember Charlotte's in the former Annex space.  We look forward to a prosperous 2018 and again thank you for your business.
