San Diego Beer Week 2017 at West Coast

Friday, Nov 3 – Sunday Nov 5: Societe Brewing Co. Weekend
We kick off Beer Week with our traditional Societe tap takeover weekend.  We will have 7 Societe beers on tap including pub favorites Pupil and Apprentice along with Coachman (session IPA), Publican (hoppy Pale Ale), Butcher Imperial Stout, Harlot Belgian Golden Ale and Bachelorette Lager with Nelson hops.
We will be tapping these beers Friday afternoon and you can enjoy them all weekend long.
Friday night we will be serving up our signature Smoked Prime Rib Dinner along with Chicken Pot Pies covered in our house Chicken Gravy.  On Saturday you can enjoy Bison Chili and our Smoked Prime Rib French Dip.  Sunday brings Beer Battered Fish and Chips.  It will be a great weekend of food and beer.

Monday, Nov 6: Firestone Pitcher Night and 50 Cent Wing Night
Look for Pivo Pils, DBA and Luponic Distortion all on special for this night with pitchers starting at just $12.  We’ll also have a keg of Stickee Monkee to share.  All night long we will have 50 Cent Wings with different sauce options including a Mango Scorpion Pepper hot sauce if you dare.  If you can’t make it by on Monday, these same great beers will be on tap Tuesday when we feature a selection of massive $3 tacos.

Wednesday, Nov 8: Karl Strauss Brewing Night with Triple Mosaic IPA
Karl Strauss and Nickel Beer Company teamed up to brew a new 9% alcohol version of the company’s awesome Mosaic Session Ale – dubbed Triple Mosaic. In addition to this 100% Mosaic hopped bruiser we will have the award winning Queen of Tarts and the 28th Anniversary Barrel Aged Quad.
Wednesday is Mac n’ Cheese night at West Coast and you can expect to find at least 4 tasty variations of our house Mac n’ Cheese every week.

Thursday, Nov 9: Ironfire Brewing Night with All. Oak. Everything. Collaboration
All. Oak. Everything. was a collaboration brewed with Nickel Beer Company that was fermented in oak barrels, aged in Bourbon and Rum oak barrels and even used oak aged water for the brewing process.  The result is a massive Imperial Stout with a pleasant balance of barrel and spirits flavor with orange peel added right before kegging and bottling.  It is deceptively smooth, so be careful – it clocks in at 11.5% alcohol.
In addition to the All. Oak. Everything. we will have kegs of Sex and Violence Apricot Sour, Ferris Muler (a beer made to taste like a Moscow Mule), 5150 IPA, Devil Within Double IPA and Grapefruit 5150 IPA.  Look for more delicious Chicken Pot Pies with house Gravy for dinner on Thursday.

Friday, Nov 10: Kern River Brewing Night
Kern River is one of my favorite breweries and I am stoked to be doing a Beer Week event with these wonderful people and their equally wonderful beer.  We will have at least 5 Kern River Brewing beers on tap including Just Outstanding IPA, River Buddy Pale, Shuttle Bunny DIPA, Dirty Hippie and Evel Kern Evel DIPA.  And Friday means more Smoked Prime Rib for dinner.

Saturday Nov 11 and Sunday Nov 12: Sierra Nevada Brewing Weekend
Every Beer Week at West Coast has ended with a Sierra Nevada tap takeover.  Sierra Nevada is very near and dear to my heart – it is just a wonderful brewery and it helped blaze a trail for our entire industry.
We will have a great selection of specialty beers on tap including Hopourtunist, So Fresh and So Keene, Baltic Joy, Estate Homegrown Harvest Ale, Otra Vez with Lime and Blue Agave and Rye Barrel Aged Dunkelweizen.  Two of my all time favorite beers will be on tap as well – Sierra Celebration and Sierra Pale.  These two beers have inspired me as a brewer for decades.
The kitchen will be working on more delicious food specials for next weekend.  Be sure to stay up to date by following us on Facebook to see our daily food specials.

That is your West Coast news for now.  We’ll see you soon for a great Beer Week event and awesome food.  Cheers, Tom
