The Shannon Rose Partnered with Tullamore D.E.W. to Create Three-Foot Tall, 33-Gallon Irish Coffee Glass
ALLENDALE, NJ (September 14, 2018) – An Irishman walks into a bar . . . But what he sees is absolutely no joke! On Friday, September 14, 2018, The Shannon Rose Irish Pub kicked off its annual Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day celebration with an event of epic proportions at its location in Clifton, NJ. In partnership with Tullamore D.E.W., The Shannon Rose, known for providing an authentic Irish experience by combining the design and décor of the Emerald Isle with modern amenities and the high-quality food, drink and banter of a traditional public house, introduced New Jersey’s largest glass of Irish Coffee!The massive libation consisted of over 27 bottles of Irish Whiskey, more than 17 gallons of fresh-brewed coffee and a pound of sugar, topped with nearly eight gallons of fresh whipped cream, charismatically concocted in an enormous, custom-made three-and-a-half-foot-tall, 22-inch-wide glass, amounting to approximately 33 gallons of mouthwatering Irish Coffee. Guests filtered in to the pub to watch the making of this supersized version of the classic Irish whiskey cocktail, made using The Shannon Rose Irish Pub’s tried-and-true recipe, and enjoyed a tasting while celebrating that St. Patrick’s Day is halfway here.
“At The Shannon Rose Irish Pub, we have two favorite times of year – St. Patrick’s Day and Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day, of course!” said Regan DeBenedetto, director of operations for The Shannon Rose Irish Pub. “We couldn’t dream up a better way to kick off one of our favorite holidays than to partner with our favorite Irish whiskey brand, Tullamore D.E.W., and have an epic celebration!”
