A new inflatable pub is coming to Scituate for the town’s Heritage Days Festival next month.
A catering company from Boston, The Paddy Wagon, operates a giant inflatable Irish pub for hosting events like weddings and private parties.
The Scituate Board of Selectmen voted in favor of having the company set up at the Heritage Days Festival next month for a beer and whisky tasting event.
Scituate selectman Shawn Harris said he has never heard of an inflatable pub and is looking forward to seeing how the event turns out.
“A portable tasting of Irish Whiskey and beers. It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of it. I have never attended one. The vote was 3-2 in favor of it. It is a first for the town of Scituate. I am kind of looking forward to see how it goes,” said Harris.
Owner of the Paddy Wagon inflatable pub, Owen Cahill says samples of different liquors will be available for sampling.
“We will be doing whiskey and beer tasting from 3 PM to 7 PM on the Saturday and the Sunday. We will be offering three samples of Irish whiskey and three samples of Irish beer along with a larger,” said Cahill.
The 46th Annual Scituate Heritage Days Festival will be held on August 5, 6 and 7.
