Shamrock Pub, fresh off its banging St. Patrick's Day bash (photo gallery), will have the only keg of Waldos’ Special Ale in Sarasota on Saturday and plans to celebrate the beer by famed California craft brewery Lagunitas with a free party called "The Shamrock One-Ring Circus." It will feature a bunch of circus acts, performers from Black Diamond Burlesque and live music by jazz-funk band Bird Tribe. Funky circus attire is encouraged and Shamrock will provide a complimentary clown nose to everyone who attends.
"For those of you who aren’t familiar with a 'beer circus,' basically it’s just what it sounds like — beer, circus performers and fun. Laguintas hosts a giant Beer Circus every year — in fact, two this year — and we’re taking that theme on to honor our great fortune of getting a keg of Waldos’ Ale," The Shamrock says. "We’ll have the only one for miles! Plus, more of your favorite Lagunitas taps."
