LA's Irish culture isn't typically the first to come to mind when considering the city's multicultural makeup. Korean? Of course. Mexican? Most definitely. But Irish? We have our old standby pubs—Tom Bergin's, of course—and a thriving beer and brewery scene that are the perfect complement to St. Patrick's Day events in Los Angeles, including festivals, Celtic music performances and parades.
