Don’t forget, it’s ~SF BEER WEEK~ until Sunday February 16th. There are so many things going on, but here are just a few of the suds-a-licious events coming up.
~MAGNOLIA GASTROPUB & BREWERY~ is a great place to check out some beer events. On Wednesday February 12th from 11am-5pm, there’s the Fifth Annual Beer and Oyster Festival with their Oysterhead Stout and some other oyster beers, plus lots of tasty oysters on the menu, both raw and cooked. Then, on Friday February 14th, from 12pm-4pm, don’t miss the Strong Beer Ice Cream Massacre, where Magnolia’s strong beers will be crafted into ice cream by none other than Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous. Which means, yes, you can enjoy a cone of Thunderpussy ice cream. On Valentine’s Day.
In the Mission, check out the Beer Week happenings at ~LA MOVIDA~, where you’ll find tap takeovers all week. They’ve got their paws on one of only six kegs of Anchor IPA, too, and will be serving it starting Thursday February 13th, along with a special burger from Pal’s Takeaway. They’ve also got Evil 3 from Heretic Brewing and lots of food specials made with beer. And speaking of Pal’s and burgers, did you know they’re going to start serving burgers on Thursdays? Yep, that’s right. SFoodie has the details. (Marin Sun Farms brisket! Secret ingredients! Delicious!) 3066 24th St. at Treat, 415-425-2392.
On Saturday February 15th, Umami Mart is hosting a Japanese Beer Fest in Oakland at ~THE TRAPPIST~. From 12pm-6pm (or until they run out) you’ll find 10 different Japanese craft beers, including offerings from Hitachino and Baird. Plus, you can order a steaming bowl of “Pastramen” (that’s pastrami ramen) by chefs Conrad Seto and Mike O’Brian of The Trappist and Mikkeller Bar to pair with all those brews. 460 8th St. at Broadway, Oakland, 510-238-8900.
