McGuire’s Irish Pub – Pensacola, FL
McGuire’s Irish Pub first opened in 1977 as a small neighborhood pub in a shopping center. McGuire cooked and tended bar and Molly waited tables and greeted customers. When Molly made her first tip -one dollar- she tacked it to the back bar for good luck. Friends of the pub added to the collection and it soon became tradition. Today you will see over 1 million one dollar bills hanging from the ceiling throughout the Pub, all of which have been signed by Irishmen of all nationalities. In 1982 McGuire’s moved to its current location, Pensacola’s original 1927 Old Firehouse. The old “firehouse” look has become a true landmark, and inside the pub, a turn-of-the-century, New York Irish Saloon theme reigns. Guests are often in “awe” as they pass through the theme-oriented rooms at McGuire’s. Whether it’s the Pipers Den, Notre Dame Room, The Irish Links Room or the Ruprecht O’Tolf Wine Cellar, McGuire’s Irish Pub is a 400-seat, 20,000 square foot landmark with a staff of over 200 warm and friendly faces.
McGuire’s offers fine Ale’s, Porters and Stouts brewed on premise in our traditional oak and copper brewery. Nature and the old-time know-how of a masterbrewer get the job done here. They brew with only the finest malted barley, imported hops, and McGuire’s very own house yeast.
Mcguire’s currently brew five regular beers and a rotating seasonal. Their regular line up includes McGuire’s Light Ale, McGuire’s Irish Red Ale, McGuire’s Porter and McGuire’s Irish Stout. Our seasonal selections include Scotch Ale, Honey Wheat, Wild Irish Raspberry Wheat, Belgian Ale, India Pale Ale, Hefeweizen, Extra Special Bitter Altbier and Christmas Ale; just to name a few. They also make a very popular root beer served draft, right out of the keg.
