We are gonna take a big breather before Beer Week begins and kick back with a Duvel in one of THREE crazy-cool glasses this Wednesday, October 26th.They were designed by three different artists: Dutch artist Parra, the Belgian graphic artist Denis Meyers, and the designer duo Elley Kishimoto. $12 bucks gets you one glass PLUS an 11.2 oz. bottle of Duvel. We've seen these glasses going for as much as $20 each on eBay. The whole thing starts at 5 pm tomorrow (that's tonight if you're reading this on Wednesday!)
Then Sunday we are part of another great event: The KEEP A BREAST DRINKABOUT. Yep, this Sunday, October 30th, from 1-5pm the Drinkabout buses will be running between all the bars and each bar is giving $1 for every beer YOU buy during those hours to Keep A Breast, the truly terrific breast cancer awareness and education charity. Since it's the day before Halloween, we say DRESS UP!
Then Halloween is Monday. We are closed. Because it's Monday, not because it's Halloween.
And then SD Beer Week (which really, is a total misnomer, the things lasts ELEVEN days) begins on Thursday, November 3rd with a Lost Abbey night at BLAH. Friday will feature live t-shirt printing and our progressive cask (but with an extra special cask) AND Jeff Bagby from Pizza Port and a showcase of his beers. Saturday the 5th is the SD Brewer's Guild Fest at Liberty Station, but if that ain't your thing, we will be carrying the Friday tradition of progressive cask on over to Saturday. Sunday the 6th is Mother Earth Day-- we have six crazy beers from this small Vista brewery including one collaboration with Automatic that does involve coffee and a crazy hoppy IPA made with 11 pounds per barrel of hops.
Then on Monday, when we are usually closed, we are having a SKA(H) Night at BLAH with SKA brewing, the 30th anniversary of Dance Craze on the big screen and Miho out front.
Tuesday we begin again with a Blind IPA Challenge. Wednesday the 9th features beers from Pizza Port OB with brewer Yiga Miyashiro standing by to answer questions. Thursday the 10th we will have Chuck Silva here from Green Flash showcasing his hoppiest beers. Friday will be 11/11/11 and we will have Patrick Rue from The Bruery here, as well as a Progressive Cask. Saturday is all about Craftsman Brewing from Pasadena and Sunday, the day to rest, with a flight of Alpine beers.
This is all subject to change (and probably will, a little.) More details to come over the next week and a half. Check our Facebook site for the most recent updates and be sure to check your inbox next week when we do the real announcement. That's all folks. Hope to see you out and about soon.
