Over the lunch hour The Shamrock Brewing Co. in Pueblo was packed with people celebrating St. Patrick's Day. The Shamrock was serving green beer on tap. "It's just a good time to get out and celebrate your heritage and everbody's Irish today and it's just a good time to be together," said Matt Bailey, a bar patron.
Ladies with the Red Hot Angels and the Red Hot Flashers, ditched their regualr red apparel for the day and were dressed in green skirts, green wigs and green hats.
Some other local taverns were making their own green beer today. Eiler's Place and Gus's Place, two older taverns in Pueblo, simply added green dye to make their beer green.
Maggie McGowan Divelbiss, who runs the Sangre De Cristo Arts & Conference Center says going to Gus's on St. Patty's day is a staff tradition. "We have been doing this for a number of years," said Divelbliss. "It's just a good place to come. You know coming to Gus's on St. Patrick's day is what Pueblo's all about," she added.
