Toronado 4-Year Anniversary Starts Today

May 24

“If you’ve been in the bar in the last couple of days, you may have noticed that there are some empty spaces among the tap handles,” starts Toronado North Park‘s most recent e-mail newsletter. The reason: they’ve been making room for kegs that will kick off the celebration of their four-year anniversary, which starts today at 11:30a.m. The beers that’ll be going on the board either went untapped during the Craft Brewers Conference, or have been saved for a special occasion such as this. In addition to “a full complement of hoppy beers from a certain East County Brewery that we like a lot,” the list looks lovely:

  • Avery – The Beast Grand Cru, Coffee Mephistopheles, Double Kaiser
  • Port / Lost Abbey – 6th Anniversary, Older Viscosity, Cuvee de Tomme, Deliverance, Mongo, The Angels’ Share…
  • Ballast Point – Sculpin, nitro Sculpin, Sea Monster, Barmy…
  • Sierra Nevada – Flipside IPA, Ovila Quadrupel, Jack & Ken’s Ale, Life & Limb
  • Dogfish Head – Hellhound, Bitches’ Brew, Urkontinent, Sah’tea, 120 Minute IPA
  • New Belgium – Tart Lychee
  • Kern River – Just Outstanding IPA & Class V stout on nitro
  • Deschutes – The Abyss 2011
  • Hollister – 5th Anniversary Ale & Sancho
  • Allagash – Victoria, Odyssey, Curieux
  • Russian River – Pig, Pliny, Porter, Damnation Batch 23 (69), Benediction, Salvation, Supplication, Sanctification, Temptation
  • De Struise – T’sjeeses Reserva 2010, X, Elliott Brew
  • Karl Strauss – Two Tortugas Quad & 23rd Anniversary Ale
  • Boon – Framboise Lambic
  • Rodenbach – Classic & Grand Cru
  • Telegraph – Rhinoceros
  • Societe – The Apprentice & Harlot

If you were planning to check out El Take It Easy’s Ballast Point pairing menu tonight, which includes both a food item and beer made with local oysters, you’re in luck — Toronado is just a block north at 4026 30th Street. Two beers with one stone.
