Welcome to Memorial Day weekend with Red White and Blue at the Ritual Tavern!

Join us tonight for fresh local Carlsbad Aqua Farm Luna and Metcalf Bay oysters and the acoustical musings of Trio Gadjo while you sip a tasty locally brewed cask ale.

If tradition calls for BBQ this holiday weekend, we've got you covered. We'll lead into the weekend with Niman Ranch St. Louis pork ribs with house BBQ sauce. Once that's out the door we'll follow with Niman pulled pork sandwiches, of course with more BBQ sauce.

Now for some Red, White and Blue:

Sharkbite Red
Port brewing's Sharkbite occupied a regular tap handle on the Ritual draught lineup for quite a while in our early days, and we are glad to see it back in house on cask tonight. Sharkbite is the most popular ale in the Port brew pubs. "A distinctive and bold American Ale that gets its bite from copious amounts of hops which are balanced by a boat load of crystal malt." - Port Brewing

White Wine for a warm evening?
Chilled Tangent Viognier is available at happy hour pricing all this weekend; $28 bottle (regularly $41) and by the glass for $7. Winemaker Christian Roguenant describes his creation as “Not a typical California viognier. It has a vibrant floral nose, and an elegant note of fresh white almond. With intense fruit flavors of peach, apricot and pear, it has a musky quality to it, and a round body. A tight mineral structure and higher level of acid balance it nicely.”

Blue Star American Wheat Ale
Our first offering of North Coast Brewing's Blue Star will be a perfect accompaniment to our San Diego summer weather. "Choice American barley and wheat malts are combined with a blend of noble hops to create this light, fruity refreshing beer." Enjoy a blue star under blue skies on a patio table!

A new batch of Ritual T-shirts arrived this week. From American Apparel, 100% cotton and made in America, our logo tees are a steal at $15 each. (Both men's and women's styles are available) We've also got a few black logo sweatshirts in stock for $35 each.
