Celebrate Earth Day with organic beer!

Beer: Proof that the Earth loves us

Beer: Proof that the Earth loves us

Happy Earth Day! Did you make it to the big shindig in Balboa Park last weekend? Well, even if you didn’t, it’s not too late to celebrate – Earth Day is today!

As you may know, here at SD Metblogs we love the Blind Lady Ale House, and they are doing something special for Mother Earth today. Among the many fine brews they serve, there are about 7 that are organic. For every organic beer purchased today, BLAH will donate $1 to the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. How’s that for putting your money where your mouth is?

If you’re more tempted by fun or financial gain than doing good, then I should tell you they are also screening some old surf movies on a decidedly non-digital projector, and will be raffling off posters, gift cards, DVDs, and cases of beer.

Beer, prizes, and surf movies? Done. Meet you there!

Sound like the punchline to a tasteless joke? It’s not. Let me explain:

The Blind Lady Ale House, a recently-established purveyor of craft pizza and beer on Adams Avenue, just got in a shipment of beautiful, new, perfect-for-beer-snobs-ahem-I-mean-connoisseurs beer glasses. Hooray! However, they’ve been open for about a month, using their second choice in glassware. That means they now have about double the glasses they’d need day-to-day in their fine establishment.

So tonight they’re having “Not Quite a Pint Night,” in which they solve their storage problem by giving you one of their old glasses to take home when you order a beer. Heck, ask for a complete set. They must have dozens just waiting for a good home.
