Russian River, Citra x 2 and Smoked Prime Rib!

Hello West Coast Fans,

We have an incredible line up of beers over the next few weeks with lots of super strong IPAs headed your way.  There are still lots of Societe beers on tap from our huge tap take over this past Thursday.  The kitchen continues to crank out amazing food specials and we will be continuing our Friday night Smoked Prime Rib special for the foreseeable future.  Here are all of the delicious, drinkable details….

This Week

We are kicking the week off with some awesome taco specials.  In addition to our regular $3 Tacos we will be serving up Nickel Bacon Tacos and Grilled Ahi Tacos for just $4 each.  The Nickel Bacon is whole slab bacon that we put in the smoker and then chunk up like steak.  Look for these specials while they last both tonight and tomorrow night.

Humberto will also be serving up Clam Chowder in a bread bowl tonight, which should be the perfect way to keep yourself warm in this weather.  We’ll also have the Nickel Bacon BLT (super thick cut bacon), Unlce Bob’s Torta (Italian-style sub on Torta bread), an Eggplant Sandwich with Pesto and the Grilled Ahi Salad.  And there will be 50 cent wings and craft beer pitchers starting at just $12.  If it seems like a lot of good stuff for Monday, it is.  We are trying to run 5-6 specials every day now including 1-2 salads.  I try to post up the food specials most days on the Facebook page at:

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 28th we cap our 5th Anniversary month with a very special keg – Russian River Blind Pig IPA.  It seems appropriate to finish the month with Temecula’s most famous beer, even if it is now brewed in Santa Rosa.  The beer will be on tap when we open at 11:30 am so  you can enjoy it at any point in the day.

Thursday, March 2nd we will tap the massive Hildegard Triple IPA from Benchmark Brewing (roughly 13.5%) along with kegs of Hop Chunks Double IPA and the brewery’s very tasty Brown Ale.  All three will be on tap by 4 pm on the 2nd and we might just sneak them on a little earlier.

This weekend we will be smoking up more Prime Rib.  We’ll have it as a dinner plate on Friday night and then serving up Prime Rib Sandwiches on Saturday all day long.  Saturday night our kitchen manager Humberto will be doing a Smoked Salmon dinner plate.  He smoked up some Salmon for Valentine’s Day and it was excellent.

Next Week

On Tuesday, March 7th we will be tapping Noble Citra Showers and I Love It IPA.  Noble was not distributing beer in San Diego for a little while, but they are back now and we have been lucky enough to get some of these very popular beers.  Hopefully we will have Noble beers more regularly on tap at West Coast throughout the year.

Then on Thursday the 9th we tap some true pub favorites from Kern River – Citra Double IPA and Hop Nookie Triple IPA alongside Thorn Street’s Brother Scotty’s Triple IPA.  All 3 of these beers will be on tap by 4 pm on the 9th.  These are all 5 gallon kegs and all strong beers so look for 5 and 10 oz pours of these special hoppy beers.

And then for next Friday, you guessed it, more Prime Rib.  Plus the kitchen will be serving up Smoked Flank Steak both Friday and Saturday.  Check the Facebook page next week for more details.

Looking Ahead

We will be serving up beer boiled Corned Beef for St. Patrick’s Day weekend starting Friday, March 17th.  We’ll have some Irish themed stouts on for the weekend and Nickel C.C. O’Neill’s Irish Red.  Look for Corned Beef plates, sandwiches and other specials all weekend long.

Some other upcoming food specials you can look forward to include pasta dishes, Smoked Meat Loaf and Chicken Parmesan.  And we will be hosting an Iron Fist tap takeover the week after St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday, March 23rd.

That is your West Coast pub update for now.  Thank you for all of the support during our transition.  Please forward this to any friends and neighbors who might be interested in what is going on at the pub.  We look forward to seeing you soon for the best smoked food and beer in town.  Cheers, Tom
