We contacted Saline’s favorite beer-serving restaurants and checked their social media pages to provide you this guide to St. Patrick’s Day in Saline.
Salt Springs Brewery
117 S. Ann Arbor St
Don’t miss the offerings from Saline’s farm-to-table restaurant and microbrewery, or you may turn green with envy.
Before we get to the food – let’s talk beer. Salt is serving a specialty “craft & tan,” which is their version of a “black and tan.” Also check out the malty goodness of Salt Paddy’s Nitro Stout.
Brunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. They’ve added corned beef and hash – hand-cut potatoes, corned beef, sautéed sweet onion served with two eggs.
For dinner there are three Salt Paddy’s offerings to choose from. The smoked corned beef Reuben includes thinly shaved, house-smoked corned beef, Gruyere, The Brinery’s fair-n-by sauerkraut, and house-made Sammy sauce served on Dexter Davison rye. Or, try their traditional corned beef and cabbage – house-smoked corned beef servied with carrots, onion, garlic, green cabbage and potatoes. And then there’s corned beef and hash pizza – thinly-sliced potatoes, leeks and onions, age-white cheddar and mozzarella.
101 W. Michigan Ave.
Get up bright and early for the fourth annual Coughlin’s Irish Breakfast, served from 9 to 11 a.m. There are three breakfasts for $8. Try bangers and eggs with rye toast and potatoes. Or switch out the bangers for brisket. The third option is corned beef hash with eggs and rye toast. To drink? Try emerald green beer, Irish car bombs and Irish coffee, among others.
After breakfast, the BG will serve corned beef brisket, bangers and mash, Guinness Irish Stew, smoked fish dip and Irish ale mussels.
Dan’s Downtown Tavern
103 E. Michigan Ave.
Dan’s opens early Sunday to serve their annual Irish breakfast – including Egg corned beef hash, limerick ham, Irish soda and coffee or Irish Beer.
The St. Paddy’s experience has been underway since Friday night at Dan’s, with music, beer and plates full of corned beef, cabbage and glazed carrots.
Oscar’s Sports Grill
6877 S. State Rd.
They’ll start serving green beer at 9 a.m. – 75 cents during the first hour! Oscars will serve their slow-cooked corned beef and cabbage all day long. Check out their Roadhouse Reuben – with corned beef piled high on fresh-baked farmhouse bread from Benny’s Bakery. Another option is the Reuben soup. Irish music all day – along with your favorite sports on TV. Don’t have green? That’s OK. Oscar’s is giving away green swag for St. Paddy’s Day.

Bridgewater Bank Tavern
