In honor of San Francisco Beer Week, join MateVeza on February 9th as we celebrate the true origin of one of history’s most revered beverages – the India Pale Ale.
India Pale Ales evolved from English Pale Ales during the 18th century. English traders and soldiers traveling to India needed a heartier Pale Ale to withstand the long journey to India, so they increased the hops and the alcohol. They figured that they could just add water once it got there, but once they tasted their new burly brew, there was no going back.
Join us in reenacting the original voyage of India Pale Ale as we embark from K&D Liquors (England) across 16th St (the Atlantic / Indian Ocean) to Pakwan Indian Restaurant (India). Arrive at K&D Liquors (3177 16th Street) to purchase a specially priced MateVeza IPA. Then join fellow shipmates for a ferry across the treacherous seas of 16th Street. Pakwan is BYOB so you can celebrate your scurvy-free journey by cracking open a MateVeza IPA to enjoy with your Indian feast (it pairs amazingly well with Indian food).
And don’t worry – we won’t make you add water to your beer when you get there.
