Hello Beer Fans!
We are proud to be serving Honor Brewing Line of Sight Lager for Military Appreciation Month all of May. We are donating to part of the proceeds of the sales of this beer to the Warrior Foundation/Freedom Station which raises money for local military families in need. The brewery is veteran owned and operated and is based in Virginia. You can check them out at: http://www.honorbrewing.com/.
In addition to having the beer on tap all month, we are doing a RAFFLE drawing tonight with tons of great prizes including rounds of golf, brewery gift certificates and tickets to the upcoming San Diego International Beer Festival!
Friday night we will be pouring cans from Alchemist including Heady Topper Double IPA, Focal Banger and Crusher DIPA. Heady Topper is considered the original hazy/New England IPA. These cans can also be purchased to go (but we do have a limited supply)! And look for our epic Rib Eye Steak Night special from 5-10 pm.
We have a beer dinner coming up this Sunday night, May 20th at 6:30 pm with Second Chance Brewing. There are only 10 seats left so if you would like to go, please sign up at the pub soon. Cost is $60 (cash only please). We will be serving a great line up of beer and food including the multiple GABF Gold Medal Tabula Rasa Porter and our own nearly world famous Birthday Bacon.
The pub will be open regular hours on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend – May 25th, 26th and 27th. We will be open for the US Soccer game on Memorial Day, Monday the 28th, from 2 to 6:30 pm for beer only. You are welcome to bring your own food into the pub for the game. Normal hours will resume at 10:30 am on Tuesday the 29th. Look for both Nickel Beer and West Coast Barbecue and Brew to be open all day on Memorial Day as well. Nickel Beer will have food trucks on Sunday the 27th and Monday the 28th.
The San Diego International Beer Festival is coming up June 15th to 17th at the San Diego County Fair. The festival has 5 sessions each featuring hundreds of beers with unlimited sampling. Special VIP tickets that include beer paired food and larger pour sizes are also available. Get all of the details here: https://sandiegobeerfestival.com/.
Brew a Beer at Nickel
Nickel Beer will be hosting a charity open brew day on Saturday, June 2nd from 9 am to 2 pm. You can be in the brew house and help make the beer from beginning to end. The brewery is partnering up with the Volcan Mountain Foundation for this event. The cost will be $75 which includes lunch and beer during the brew day and a 64 oz growler of the beer when it is finished (you can also do $60 for just the brew day with no growler). 100% of that money will be donated to the Volcan Mountain Foundation. If you are interested in spending the day in a professional brewery to learn about the process to make great beer then please join us! This opportunity is limited to 8 people. To sign up or for more information please contact Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the brewery at 760-765-2337.
Finally, I wanted to ask a favor of everyone out there. Sometimes things get taken from the pub and more often than not we are able to get back things that are important. Recently an AleSmith sign was taken from the men’s bathroom. Normally a beer sign would be highly replaceable. However, this particular sign was given to the founder of the pub, Jim O’Brien, by AleSmith’s founder Skip Virgilio. It was signed to the pub and has a very high sentimental value. If anyone knows what happened to the sign, please let us know. All we want is for the sign to be returned – no questions will be asked if it shows back up. Thank you for your help.
That is your good beer news for now. We’ll see you soon for a great beer. Cheers, Tom
