Just a quick web-only update this week.Â Tonight is the San Diego Festival of Beer downtown.Â The festival will feature more than 60 breweries and all of the proceeds go to benefit cancer charities in San Diego County.Â Fest runs from 6-11 pm at Columbia and B streets near Karl Strauss.Â For more info, check out www.sdbeerfest.org.
On the pub front, we will have some great glassware for sale on Friday night from La Chouffe, Chimay, Ecausinnes, Gavroche, 3 Monts and more.Â Some glasses will be free with a bottle purchase, others will range from $1-$3.Â There are a ton of great beers on tap as well.Â We just tapped a fresh keg of Alpine Nelson Rye-IPA, Moylan’s Hopsickle is still flowing and Pliny the Elder will be back on today, hopefully in time for lunch.
On Saturday, no matter how you do it, please take a moment to remember those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the many more who have lost their lives since making sure it never happens again.Â A heartfelt thank you to all of those who help keep us safe while we sleep.
Sunday the 12th the NFL season will start and we will now be open at 11:30 am every Sunday.Â Stop by for our great Fish and Chips or Fish Tacos and enjoy 10% off all bottles all day for on premise comsumption, or import bottles to-go.Â The Chargers will play on Monday the 13th as part of a double header.Â Their game against the Chiefs kicks off at 7:15 pm.Â We will have $10 pitchers of all craft and local beers from 4:30 pm until closing.Â The home opener will be Sunday the 19th against the Jaguars and it seems that a TV blackout is a very real possibility.
Next week look forward to a cask of Firestone Union Jack on Thursday the 16th and a night of beers from Manzanita Brewing Company on the 17th.Â That is your good beer news for now.Â We’ll see you soon for a great beer.Â Cheers, Tom
