Lots of opportunities coming up to get your beer on—at brunch, in a beer-making class, and even on Valentine’s Day. Beerunch is back at ~PUBLIC HOUSE~ on Sunday February 12th, 11:30am-2:30pm, with a brunch-focused food and beer pairing menu. Some of the featured pairings are MateVeza and Mill Valley Beerworks Morpho Herbal Ale (aged with lactobacillus) with El Porteño pollo empanadas, Moonlight Toast (Slightly Burnt) with chicken waffles with salsa verde, and Marin Three Flowers IPA (cask) with potato chip-crusted fried mac and cheese bites with mimolette, Jack, smoked Gouda, and Gruyère. Tix required and do sell out. Get ‘em online here.
Get your beer on again the next day at a beer-making and cooking class in the Hands On Gourmet loft kitchen—it’s the SF stop of the BROOKLYN BREW SHOP BEER MAKING BOOK TOUR. Students cook with the Hands On Gourmet chefs while the Brooklyn Brew Shop demos their Spring Lager and explains the beer-making process from grains to glass. The beer and food pairings include Bourbon Dubbel with barbeque duck and green papaya salad, Jalapeño Saison with grilled lamb kebabs and mango chutney, and Gingerbread Ale with vanilla bean ricotta cannoli, citrus, and pistachios. Monday February 13th, 7pm-9pm. $50, includes book, beer tasting, and food pairing. Tickets online. 2325 3rd St. #409 at 20th St.
Also at Public House, they’re putting tongue in cheek for a Valentine’s Day party on Tuesday the 14th they’re calling “Bitter, Sour, Single”, otherwise known as a singles event with specials on bitter and sour beers all night, including Tartar and Cuvee de Bubba (both sour), as well as Jack London Bitter. You get a free sample flight of bitter and sour beers with purchase. How’s that for an anti-Valentine’s Day party?
And don’t forget, it’s SF Beer Week February 10th-19th! So many great events, check it out!
