Holiday Ritual

Its chilly and dark early, we’ll understand if you need to drop in to the Ritual for some hot soup, cask conditioned ale, music, or holiday ale.

Daniele Spadavecchia on guitar, Stone Levitation on Cask, Oysters on the Half Shell start it all off tonight.

The decorations are up and the Winter beers are rolling in. We have Alesmith YuleSmith on tap. In bottles are Big Sky Powder Hound Winter Amber Ale Shipyard Prelude, Black Diamond Winter Dubbel Ale from Walnut City, and Vintage 2008 Lost Abbey Gift of the Magi.

We have a great cold weather soup, Londoner Sausage (by Knight Salumi) and Shitake Mushroom topped with crème fraiche and fried leeks. Beginning on Friday night we will offer a hearty new entrée; Niman Ranch Lamb Skewer with Souzie’s Organic Turkish Eggplant over Basmati Pilaf with red bell pepper sauce.

This weekend the neighborhood will offer seasonal attractions, including the North Park Toyland Parade on Saturday at 11:00 am and December Nights this Friday and Saturday in Balboa Park.

Top your Saturday off with our Winter Beer Flight featuring the new Winter Powder Hound, Prelude and Dubbel Ale bottles just in and mentioned above for just $5.

Keep the festivities going with our all day Sunday happy hour special featuring a Niman Pulled Pork slider and Onion Rings with selected draught beer for only $8.00.
