San Diego Beer Week: Day Four
Monday, November 5
5 p.m. – Sliders & Homebrews Sea Rocket Bistro (3382 30th Street, North Park) will be offering up a trio of sliders topped with fried oysters, barbecued grass-fed beef, and braised pork cheeks to pair with a pale ale, pumpkin ale, and milk stout made by chef and homebrewer Dilinda Monterio. Talk about a fun and tasty way to support somebody’s side project.
6 p.m. – Flanders Drive Release Party In celebration of a decade in business, Green Flash Brewing Company (6550 Mira Mesa Boulevard, Mira Mesa) crafted a Flanders-style sour red ale that will only ever be available at this event. Enjoy a glass with food from Carnitas’ Snack Shack and other rare Green Flash beers, then take a couple of bottles of Flanders Drive home to quaff at a later date.
Time TBD – Beer, Art & The Artist With craft beer, it’s about what’s in the bottle first and foremost, but sometimes one has to admit, the art on the outside is pretty damn cool, too. Meet Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits label artist Paul Elder and the guy whose brews he makes look so appealing on store shelves, brewer Colby Chandler, at this special event at beer store, Bottlecraft (2161 India Street, Little Italy).
7 p.m. – The Five Chef Societe The Handlery Hotel’s (950 Hotel Circle, Mission Valley) Karl Prohaska is uniting with talented fellow chefs Hanis Cavin of Carnitas’ Snack Shack, Erik Sarkisian of Tom’s Lighthouse, Anthony Sinsay of Burlap, and Misty Birchall and Kaitlin Jamie of Pubcakes to for the Five Chef Societe and pair beery cuisine with IPAs and Belgian-style brews from Kearny Mesa’s Societe Brewing Company.
