Green Flash Progressive Dinner Tonight! Thursday the 12th
Its here! This should be one of the highlights of beer week. The Green Flash Progressive Beer Dinner is tonight starting at 5:30pm until 10:00pm. Five fine eateries are participating: Jaynes Gastropub, Blind Lady Ale House, Ritual Tavern, The Linkery, and Sea Rocket Bistro. Each establishment will have a short menu with three small food items paired with a 6 ounce pour of Green Flash beer. The price for each pairing is $8, including the beer. Start your dinner at any location and travel to the next or stay and have all three items at your restaurant of choice. This is not a ticketed event, its pay as you go so enjoy a course at all five places if your belly has room for it.
Also conveniently, Green Flash Brewing is sponsoring a “Hop-on/Hop-off” bus with Brew Tours of San Diego that will be running a circular route all night (6pm to 11pm) between Hamilton’s Tavern on 30th Street and Blind Lady Ale House on Adams Avenue.
