This week provides a double-whammy, of sorts, for beer drinkers.  The ultimate drinking day (St. Patrick’s Day) and the First Round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament happily coincide.  It’s worlds colliding!!  But the good thing is that these events can be merged to create a fun atmosphere of college basketball with a pinch of Irish luck thrown in.  Delaware Hop Scene and have put together an events list of the best craft beer hoppenings for both St. Paddy’s Day AND the NCAAs!  Check out the hoplights for Wednesday, March 16th through Tuesday, March 22nd below.  Links to our St. Patrick’s Day and March Madness guides are provided.  As always, feel free to peruse the full sortable calendar of craft beer events at Delaware Hop Scene!
