Fat Tuesday at ODM!

Mardi Gras is during SF Beer Week this year and we'd love for you to come celebrate with us at Old Devil Moon! All year 'round at ODM we do great NOLA-influenced fare and a cocktail program with a Louisiana bent, but we're taking it to the next level for Fat Tuesday:

If you can't be in NOLA for the Mardi Gras, laissez les bon temps rouler at ODM!

Black Magic Sour Sunday Beer Brunch

Sunday brunch is awesome. Sour beer is awesome. Mash up!

It's simple, on the first day of SF Beer Week, Saturday the 10th, we're doing our epic Sour Saturday Sh!tstorm event and as much sour beer as will be consumed that day (a sh!tload), there will be PLENTY left for Black Magic Sour Sunday Beer Brunch. Sure, some of the heaviest hitters will blow on Saturday, like the Sante Adairius & Rare Barrel stuff, but we figure there will be around 12-14 partially full kegs left. 

Not only that, but we're holding back a few VERY special kegs just for our Black Magic Sour Sunday Beer Brunch! We were going to make it a surprise, but what the hell, you need to know about these:

1) Boon - Boon Oude Lambik - 6.5% - unblended lambic, while it can be found in Belgium it is super rare to experience this in the US

2) Boon - Oude Kriek - 6.5% - wild cherry lambic

3) Hanssens - Oudbeitje - 6% - strawberry lambic, made in small batches and only a few kegs made it to the west coast of the US

4) BFM - Abbaye De Saint Bon-Chien Special 20th Anniv Edition - 11% ABV - one time release, sour biere de garde aged in Bordeaux Grand Cru wine barrels

5) Schneider - 2014 Cuvee Barrique - 9.5% - vintage sour, blend of wine barrel aged Aventinus & Aventinus Eisbock

6) Brouwerij Bockor N.V. - Cuvée Des Jacobins Prestige - 7.1% - one time release, a blend of 24 month-old foedrebier, spontaneously fermented & blended from foedres IX, XI, and XIV

7) Alvinne - Kriek van Mortagne - 9.5% - a blend of 60% Kerasus 2014 & 40% Cuvee de Mortagne aged in St Emilion wine barrels

The deets:

~~ ODM's Black Magic Sour Beer Brunch goes from 11AM to 3PM (the regular dinner menu is in effect from 6-10PM). 

~~ ODM is open on Sundays until midnight, so if you can't make beeruch, come in later!

~~ We'll be pouring all the killer sours left over from the Sour Saturday Sh!tstorm event. We figure there will be about 14 partially full kegs, some more full than others. Help us kick those sours! 

~~ In addition, we're tapping a VERY special surprise keg on Sunday. Seriously, it isn't like, just another humdrum sour. 

~~ We have full liquor, so if a Bloody Mary or Maria is more your speed (or your non-beer-geek-partner's speed!), we've got you all covered. 

~~ Black Magic Brunch goodies include Huevos Rancheros; Loco Moco; Shrimp & Griddled Grits; a Breakfast Sammy; French Toast Dippers; Fried Chicken Sliders; and Cheddar Biscuits & Gravy. Many of these are available vegetarian. 

~~ ODM has a ridiculous line up of SF Beer Week events, one every day, including Whales of the Deep, Fat Tuesday, and HazeFest II. Check them all out here:

See you there!

F*ck Beer / Spiritous Sunday

Aren't you sick of beer yet? We're definitely ready for a cocktail...maybe even a fancy beer cocktail or paired boilermaker. It's SPIRITOUS SUNDAY at ODM, y'all!

We're comfortable saying that ODM is one of the best, if not the very best, beer bar in SF that also has the hard stuff. So why not come in for some whisky, rum, or whatever tickles your fancy? We'll be whipping up special beer cocktails (and not just the b.s. kind where Pilsner replaces soda water), our regular fancy cocktails, and we'll be giving folks a sneak peak of our paired boilermaker menu that we will be releasing in the near future. 

On top of all that, loads of insanely great beer left from half a dozen events all week will still be on draft (the sloppy seconds continue!). So whether you are or are not sick of beer yet, we've got you very much covered.

It's ODM's Sloppy Seconds Sour Saturday Sh1tstorm! 

Seriously though, come get you some of the insanely great sours and other barrel aged goodies left over from a looooong week of amazing beer at ODM. We'll be swapping out 8-16 kegs per night every day of SF Beer Week. There will be LOTS of killer stuff left near the end. We're creating an institution around what many beer geeks already know about SF Beer Week events: go the day after a big event, when the crowds are gone, and you'll usually find a lot of the great beer is still available on draft! Sloppy seconds! 

To boot, Freewheel Brewing will be on hand with two cask ales and a third on draft. The Freewheel team will be there to meet and greet their drinking public. ODM and our regulars LOVE Freewheel and tear through their casks of wonderful English ales at a prodigious rate. Come and share the love with us and have yourself an Imperial Pint of something sessionable. 

Avoid the huge crowds elsewhere and appreciate all that good stuff you missed at ODM all week long! Plus Freewheel! What else do you need to know?

VDay Chocolate & Beer Pairing with Wicked Pete Slosberg & Chris Cohen

All profits from this event will go to the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research ( Tickets available here.

Bring your sweetheart to Old Devil Moon for a truly special Valentine's Day dinner where you get to skip straight to dessert! Wicked Pete Slosberg & Chris Cohen have prepared a fabulous beer and chocolate pairing event for you at ODM. They'll introduce and discuss each of 8 wonderful and nuanced pairings. Pete is making several chocolates for the event and we're excited to be working with Berkeley's TCHO chocolate for the others.

Pete Slosberg is a legend in craft beer and artisanal chocolate. He founded Pete’s Brewing Company, producer of the famed "Pete's Wicked Ale" that was one of the 80's and 90's biggest names in craft beer.

Needless to say, Pete is an expert in both, including pairing them.
