Perfect Storm: Weekend of 6/29 Packed With Beer Events

Jun 27

Through cosmic happenstance, this weekend, specifically Saturday, is absolutely PACKED with beer events. Below is a listing of what’s going down 6/29-7/1 with a few lines of explanation.

Friday 6/29
3PM — Cismontane Rare Draft & Cask @ Ritual Tavern
I’ve been watching Santa Margarita’s Cismontane Brewing Co. appear on draft lists around town recently – worth a look!

430PM — 1st Anniversary Celebration @ Local Habit
In celebration of Local Habit’s first, there will be a special beer brewed by Hess Brewing, a menu that’s been created by  popular vote, and several excellent draft offerings. Also, there’s a custom glassware giveaway to the first 40 patrons. To read more on this, click here.

5PM — Firkin Friday w/ Green Flash @ Hamiltons Tavern
“Dueling casks” of Green Flash Retro Extra Pale Ale — the company’s first beer recipe from almost ten years ago — and Imperial IIPA will start flowing at 5.

6PM — AleSmith Decadance 2012 Cask @ KnB Wine Cellars
KnB puts it best: “[You] won’t see this baby again any time soon!” Cask starts pouring at 6PM.

730PM — Ballast Point Night @ Coaster Saloon
Coaster Saloon has been working on their craft beer program. This eve the Saloon is partnering with the MeetUp.com group San Diego Craft Brew Society. Coaster will have Habanero Sculpin on cask along with Sea Monster Stout, Longfin Lager, and Piper Down Scottish Ale. More information can be found here. If you haven’t been to the Saloon, it’s steps away from the beach and the weather should be awesome.

Saturday 6/30
10AM — Cismontane Beer for Breakfast @ Small Bar
If you haven’t been to a Beer for Breakfast by Small Bar, you’re missing out. Be prepared to eat and drink and accomplish little else afterwards (I recommend napping and/or hanging out by a pool). If you need a break from the beer, try one of their Bloody Mary’s (made with Ballast Point’s Bloody Mary mix).

11AM — 1st Anniversary Celebration @ Local Habit
The celebration continues into Day #2 and starts at 11AM. First 40 people in the door get a custom Hess / Local Habit glass to commemorate the occasion.

12PM — KnB4 @ KnB Wine Cellars
To celebrate their 4th, KnB is going insane. A tasting garden will pour rare beer from bottles & kegs, and they’ll also be selling rare bottles from their cellar. Among the many taps offered will be their collaboration Gose beer by Monkey Paw Brewing. There will also be a 225 pig roast. Click here for the full details.

1PM & 5PM — Grand Opening @ Societe Brewing Co. (SOLD OUT)
12 in ’12 member Societe opens their doors officially. Sold out :(

If you haven’t tried this year’s Summer YuleSmith, you should. It is awesome.

7P - Local Art and Beer (L.A.B.) @ TapRoom. Once a month on the first Wednesday, TapRoom opens it’s doors to local artists and allows them to display their stuff. While PB isn’t considered a art hub of San Diego, TapRoom doesn’t care. Rightfully so, because while at one  L.A.B. event we learned about URT, a neat little clothing creator here in town. This Wednesday SD artists Corey Gautereaux and Kyle Curtis will be on display with local featured brewery Coronado Brewing Co.

7P - Cask Night @ Phileas Foggs feat. Karl Strauss Double Dry Hopped Pintail Pale Ale. Phileas Foggs has been recommended by a few of our readers as a must-see craft beer destination in Poway. We’re going to try and make this event. Also, is it just us or is Karl Strauss kicking it up a notch with creative beer production?

7P – The Tipsy Crow on 5th Ave. Downtown will be tapping a cask of Mission Brewery’s Shipwrecked Double IPA. Here’s their description: “A amazingly balanced and hoppy beer, yet finishes as smooth as silk with no hint of high alcohol hotness usually associated with strong double IPA’s. Super citrus and grapefruit aromas and flavors from the generous use of Cascade, Magnum, Centennial and CTZ hops.” With Padres season in full swing, we’re very excited about Mission Brewery opening up next to Petco Park. Shipwrecked is one of their most popular beers, and it’s no doubt the cask version at The Tipsy Crow will be extra delicious.
