Cervecería & Bi-Rite Salted Caramel Ale Release at Cervecería de MateVeza
We got together with our neighbors at Bi-Rite Creamery and brewed “Salted Caramel Ale,” an homage to their signature Salted Caramel ice cream. Come try the beer side by side with the ice cream to see how we did. We’ll also be serving ice cream floats featuring Bi-Rite’s delicious creations with our nano-brewed beers.

MateVeza IPA Sails the 18th St. Seas from Cervecería to Kasa Indian Eatery
Join us in reenacting the original voyage of India Pale Ale as we embark from Cervecería de MateVeza (England) down 18th St (the Atlantic / Indian Ocean) to Kasa Indian Restaurant (India). We’ll meet at Cervecería at 6pm and then we’ll ferry you and the precious IPA keg through the treacherous seas of 18th Street. Once we safely arrive at Kasa, you can celebrate your scurvy-free journey by sipping on a MateVeza IPA with your Indian feast (coincidentally a delightful pairing).
Thursday – 2/13/2014 – 5 PM to 9 PM
Beer by BART Collaboration Release
Steve and Gail of Beer by BART fame came in and collaborated on a special beer brewed with carob molasses on our 20-gallon nano system. Hop on BART, exit at 16th St, enjoy a pint or two, fill a growler, and hop back on BART before 12:30 AM. Giddyup!

Saturday – 2/15/2014 12 PM to 4 PM
7-Day Brew at Cervecería de MateVeza
Join us in drinking a batch of beer brewed on our 20-gallon nano system on 2/8/14 (only 7 days prior, this beer will live it’s entire life during Beer Week). Never rush perfection – unless it’s with Safale US-05 during SF Beer Week!
Saturday – 2/15/2014 6 PM to 10 PM
Budweiser Tap Makeover
According to the team at AB, the Budweiser recipe dates back to the mid 1800′s. Sounds like it might be time for a makeover. We made a few slight modifications to the King of Beers and will be pouring a Citra dry hopped Bud, a Nitro Bud, a Black Bud, and maybe another surprise or two. Maybe we’ll even stumble upon a future recipe for Bud II! You’re welcome, AB!
Sunday – 2/16/2014 – 12 PM to 4 PM
Sacred & Herbal Healing Beers
We will be brewing 3 recipes from Stephen Harrod Buhner’s gruit bible, Sacred & Herbal Healing Beers. Will we dabble in the dark arts of henbane? Create a beer fit for baby JC with myrrh? Or should the hopless ales of the dark ages stay in the dark ages? You will decide!
