SF Beer Week 2017!

It’s almost time for Beer Week again!  This year’s SF Beer Week runs from Feb 9-19, and we’ve got some really great events coming up at The Half Orange.

PARADE OF PORK AND LAGERS with OL’ REPUBLIC BREWERY

Saturday, February 11

We did this last year and it was a ton of fun.  We’ll have smoked pork, fried pork, cured pork and pork we haven’t even thought of yet, paired with an array of lagers from the folks who perhaps brew them better than anyone.   Those folks, from Ol’ Republic, will be in the house to celebrate with us.

This will run from 11am to 10pm, admission is free and pork is plentiful.

VALENTINE’S DINNER with MIHO and FIELDWORK BREWING

Tuesday, February 14

We’re bringing in our great friends from San Diego for our 2nd annual Valentine’s Day Dinner with Fieldwork Brewing.  Juan Miron and Kevin Ho started MIHO as a farm-driven gastrotruck in our old stomping grounds of North Park, and now they cook their thoughtful, fun cuisine at stylish events all over Southern California.   We’re stoked to host them and Fieldwork for what will be sure to be a delicious and delightful event.

This will be a ticketed event, $45/person including beer, food, and service.

BIG CHICKEN BEER RELEASE with HENHOUSE BREWING

Friday, February 17

The Half Orange will be one of a select number of venues tapping Henhouse‘s ultra-fresh double IPA, Big Chicken — the beer that is released once a year and is only tapped on the same day it is kegged.

Time TBD.  No admission cost, just buy a beer and drink it.

BELGIAN BRUNCH with CLEOPHUS QUEALY

Sunday, February 19

Close out Beer Week with a relaxing day of brunch and Belgian beers from the East Bay specialists in Belgian styles, Cleophus Quealy Beer Company in San Leandro.  Nothing goes better with Belgian beer than fries and Nutella crepes!

This will run from 11am to 10pm, admission is free.
