ThisWeek staffers celebrated St. Patrick’s Day a few days early during a March 15 visit to Grove City Brewing Co.

No, we weren’t out on the lash, but week 9 of the #ThisWeekBreweryTour brought us to the Grove City establishment that makes dozens of beer and cider, Irish cream and a specialty green concoction the brewery is serving through March.

Head brewer Trevor Luther debuted his Irish Holly earlier this month. It gets its natural green color from pistachios instead of the commonly used food-color dye, he said.

“I was trying to look for an all-natural way to make the beer green without using artificial dye or anything,” he said. “That’s an all-natural pistachio puree, so it’s blended pistachios.”

In addition to the green beer, Luther created another St. Patrick’s Day-inspired item featuring Lucky Charms cereal, whipped cream and a green-tinted mousse.

Luther’s own Irish cream is used as the base for the mousse, which is layered with the other ingredients in a glass to create a themed dessert for the holiday.

Grove City Brewing Co., 3946 Broadway, has been open for about two years, but the adjacent Plum Run Winery (owned and operated by the same people) has been open about six years, Luther said.
