Hello West Coast Fans,
Change is in the air at West Coast. If you have stopped by recently you will have seen our new paint job – you can check out some pictures here: https://www.facebook.com/WestCoastBarbecueBrew/photos/a.144069992393106.30609.138469802953125/1089357744530988/?type=3&theater. The place is much brighter and yes, we will be putting stuff back on the walls soon. We are also starting to slowly expand our hours. Our first step will be to stay open until 9 pm on Sunday nights starting with this Sunday, May 28th.
Some things that are not changing include great beer and Smoked Prime Rib every Friday. Tonight we will be tapping a selection of beers from Belching Beaver Brewing Co. including Peanut Butter Latte Stout, Anniversary Hazy Pale Ale, Miso Honey Wheat Ale and Orange/Vanilla IPA. One of my favorite soups is on the specials board today as well – Beef Enchilada. So simple, yet so good.
As mentioned, we will have our signature Smoked Prime Rib on Friday night. Then Humberto and crew will be serving up a Smoked Flank Steak dinner special for Saturday night. And we have a new twist for Saturday day with the Beer Cheese Prime Rib Cheese Steak. We melt our house made beer cheese into warm prime rib sliced thin and then top it with grilled onions and peppers. Having already tried this sandwich in a test run, I can assure it that it is every bit as delicious as you are currently imaging it.
And as if that was not already enough for one weekend, we will be opening at Noon on Monday the 29th for Memorial with 50 Cent Wings, $3 Tacos and Craft Beer Pitchers starting at just $12 ALL DAY from Noon to 9 pm!
Beer to the Rescue
We will be hosting the final event of the Beer to the Rescue campaign to raise money and awareness for the Southern California Lupus Foundation on Thursday, June 1st. The event is organized by local beer writer Brandon Hernandez. He and I collaborated on a Double IPA at Nickel Beer called Hops to the Rescue, which is 8% alcohol and brewed with Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic, Cascade and German Blanc hops. We will have that on tap alongside Nickel Banner Grade IPA (6.9% with Simcoe and Mosaic hops) and Tahoma IPA (6.5% all Tahoma hops). I am hoping to have 1 or 2 other Beer to the Rescue beers on tap for the night as well. You can check for updates at our event page for the night: https://www.facebook.com/events/257827354624186/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A%2229%22%2C%22ref_notif_type%22%3A%22event_calendar_create%22%2C%22action_history%22%3A%22null%22%7D¬if_t=event_calendar_create¬if_id=1495734498027317.
Humberto will be making up something special from the kitchen for the nigh. The NBA Finals also begin on June 1st and we will have it on our big screen TVs.
On Thursday, June 8th we will host a night of beers from Port Brewing, Lost Abbey and The Hop Concept. And we just recently got some fresh allocations from Kern River Brewing including Shuttle Bunny DIPA and Hop Nookie Triple IPA. I am not 100% positive when they will be arriving in San Diego just yet, but look for them on tap by mid-June. We will certainly post up about it on the Facebook page. And on June 15th we will host Pariah Brewing, which is turning out some very nice beers.
We have a special treat for all of the dads out there for Father’s Day weekend – an entire weekend of Smoked Prime Rib dinner specials. We will start serving up Smoked Prime Rib plates at 5 pm Friday and then continue to serve them all day Saturday and all day Sunday. That way you can bring dad by anytime for an amazing meal and fantastic beer.
That is your West Coast update for now. We’ll see you soon for great smoked food and delicious craft beer. Cheers, Tom
