Grapes & Grains Date Night at McGraths

The Irish have a long-standing tradition of pairing the perfect ingredients together. And this doesn’t just apply to the recipes that they serve at mealtime. The Irish have detailed knowledge when it comes to pairing the right drinks with the right food for a feast that’s impossible to forget. To commemorate this wealth of knowledge with the community that we all hold dear, McGrath’s Irish Ale House is proud to present Grapes & Grains Date Night! 

Manatee Whiskey Society 

McGrath’s is pairing with the Manatee Whiskey Society to put on this very special event that will bring the luck of the Irish to your palate and tastebuds. And, as some of you know, the Manatee Whiskey Society has been heavily involved in the communities of both Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch. 


Glad you asked. For the reasonable price of only $150, you’ll be treated to the perfect event to kick off 2023 and maybe even start the Valentine’s Day celebrations a little earlier than normal. A cocktail will welcome you to the event, and a four-course meal will follow. We’re very excited to announce that the Rueben Winery will supply the wine, and Redwood Empire will be supplying the Whiskey for this wonderful occasion. 

There will also be an appearance from Aleshia Macomber of Purple Brans. She will be dispensing her expert knowledge on the pairing of whiskey and wine while we dispense the food and drinks to you and the rest of our much-appreciated clientele. This is a rare occasion to gain some first-hand knowledge and explore your cultural horizons. Not to mention, enjoy some of the finest offerings from the emerald island.
