The Pearl Pours a Brewski Brunch for San Diego Beer Week
The Pearl Hotel will toast to San Diego's Beer Week (November 6 to 15) with a poolside beer brunch on November 8 featuring suds from local artisan brewery AleSmith Brewing Co.
The beer brunch will have four brewski-and-eats stations at each corner of the pool. At one station, the Belgian-style Grand Cru will be paired with a smoked ham and roasted pear croque monsieur. Another will offer the Speedway Stout, an imperial stout with coffee, to complement the hazelnut French toast and Tahitian vanilla custard. Old Numbskull, a West Coast-style barleywine, will come with house-smoked bacon, sunnyside-up quail eggs and bird's next hash browns.
The last station will pour Anvil, the brewery's signature beer, to go with the raisin rum coffeecake.
Although this is the Pearl's first AleSmith beer brunch, the hotel's been doing beer-pairing dinners since 2008 and they plan on doing more ale-focused events.
To drink your brunch, it'll cost $10 for each station or $30 to indulge in all four. If you're one of those people who has a gazillion friends on Facebook, get 20 of your pals to pre-register via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll each get a discounted price of $20 for all four stations. Just don't drink and swim.
