St. Patrick’s Day Bash at BabyCat Brewery

A group of adults stands in a circle at BabyCat’s outdoor area, raising their steins of beer in celebration.

Kensington, Maryland – The spirit of St. Patrick’s Day was in full swing at BabyCat Brewery this year. The local hotspot hosted a day-long celebration that drew in a crowd of over 3,000 people, including teachers and students from WJ.

BabyCat Brewery is known for its dedication to crafting excellent beverages and creating a welcoming atmosphere, and the brewery most certainly outdid itself with its annual St. Patrick’s Day event, bringing a fun experience to all age groups.

Highlights of the Day:

Rockin’ Music by “The Haze”

“The Haze,” a band formed by WJ students, took center stage. Torben Mucchetti, the lead singer and guitarist, rocked the crowd with their tunes. Other members include drummer Bradley West, Hal Fischer on bass and keyboard player Oliver Forrest. It was an amazing way to connect the brewery with the community and our local school.

Free Treats from Carmen’s Italian Ice

Carmen’s Italian Ice, soon opening in the same shopping plaza, gave out free samples of their refreshing treats. How delicious! Their appearance got everyone excited for their grand opening on July 1, which will replace the previous stores of the Parkway Barber Shop and Kensington Television Services.

Food Truck Delights

The new Cattie Shak food truck at BabyCat Brewery served up mouthwatering burgers, fries and wings. People couldn’t stop raving about the tasty food: elegant smashburgers with a lightly toasted sesame bun, crispy crinkle cut pickles and the flavorful signature sauce; double-fried crispy french fries seasoned to perfection with Old Bay; and the even crispier wings, available in six different sauces. Looks like the Cattie Shak is here to stay!

Green Galore

Folks decked out in their finest green gear – from shirts to headbands. The brewery was a sea of festive colors, and the holiday spirit was contagious. BabyCat bartenders and servers were sure to dress in their funniest St. Patrick’s attire, featuring puns like none other.

Packed House

The place was packed! Lines for their brewed concoctions stretched out the door, so it definitely saved time to know one of the Walter Johnson students working at the event: Ava Redmond, Lilly Delp, Macie Redmond and Alexander Levy. Space was tight, with hordes of people gathering around the band, in the secret garden, on the deck and spreading throughout the blocked off parking area.

It was clear that BabyCat Brewery’s St Patrick’s Day celebration was more than just a party; it was a reflection of the vibrant community that makes Kensington a wonderful place to live and celebrate. For those who missed out on the festivities, fear not. BabyCat Brewery continues to be a beacon of community and good times, with events that are sure to capture the hearts of many more in the future.
