Live Music and Great Beer Livens up the Month of March

There’s a holiday worth celebrating in some shape or form almost every month of the year, and March’s big holiday is St. Patrick’s Day. While we’ll all be wearing green and saluting the Irish on Tuesday, March 17, why not keep the celebrations going all month long? The Green Heron Club will be honoring the Irish holiday with a great Irish beer on tap, as well as a few other Irish beers available in bottles or cans.

Come out March 21 to enjoy some Irish beer along with the great music of Paul Douse.  Originally from Vermont, Paul now makes his home in King, and this Stokes County resident has made quite a name for himself in the Triad and beyond as a talented musician.

The Green Heron Club offers live music every Saturday night, and in addition to Paul Douse, their line-up is pretty great. March rounds out with the funky music of Be the Moon on the 28th, and in April the club has lined up Taylor Vaden, Regal Sloan and Mood Swingz. What makes the music even better is the chance to get to hear these amazing musicians perform in such an intimate, comfortable setting.

In addition to its reputation as a great place to hear live music, the Green Heron Club is making a name for itself in the craft beer world as well. With 10 draft taps and about 30 other types of beer available in bottles or cans, this is the place to be if you really want choice in your beer, or have a love for local beer. “Currently our best seller is the Highland Oatmeal Porter,” said owner David Hoskins. “Duck Rabbit, Beer Army and Old Hickory are pretty popular as well.”


Check out the Green Heron Club to see some of the exciting things going on in the cultural arena here in Stokes County. It’s a great place to relax and hang out with friends. Currently the club is open Fridays and Saturdays 6 p.m. to closing, and Sundays 1-6 p.m. Once spring and summer arrive, the bar will be open up to four days a week. Whether you’ve paddled down the Dan River or just drive up in your car, hanging out on the deck overlooking the river is a great way to spend a beautiful Carolina summer afternoon.
