Eat! Drink! Celebrate! It’s Old Devil Moon’s First Anniversary

This week, the fabulous Old Devil Moon at 3472 Mission (near Cortland) will celebrate its first anniversary. Hooray!  Congrats!

The big first-anniversary bash happens this Saturday, Sept. 23, but Old Devil Moon has a series of events lined up for this week. Co-owner Chris Cohen wants to tell you all about them:

Old Devil Moon is one year-old, and we want to invite our Bernal neighbors  to join the celebration.  We couldn’t do what we do without your support.

We’re having a anniversary event on Saturday, Sept. 23 from noon to 2AM featuring an insane list of rare and special beer. We’re also releasing permanent updated food and cocktail menus to ring in year two.

ODM is rolling out an updated food menu. We’re retaining established hits such as the Fried Gulf Shrimp, Oyster Rockefeller, Fried Chicken, and Roast Beef Po Boys. New dishes include: Fried Pickle Spears made with Paulie’s Pickling ODM pickles; a Louisiana Hot Link Po Boy; a BBQ Beef Sando; a super juicy ODM Cheeseburger made with two ¼ lb patties; & Devil’s Pups, hush puppies topped with powdered sugar, Ghirardelli chocolate, & whipped cream.

We’re also rolling out an updated cocktail menu that keeps old favorites but adds lots of new options including: the Devil’s Daiquiri, a rhum agricole daiquiri with Averna; the Bitter Mai Tai, made with Campari and Jamaican rum; a classic Boulevardier on draft; the Spirit Raiser, our tequila-based take on a Corpse Reviver; The Moon Also Rises, our mezcal-based take on a The Sun Also Rises; plus a few others. Our cocktails will remain in the $8-11 range they’ve always been in.

At the anniversary party we’ll also be grilling 1/4 lb Coney Dogs on the back patio until 4PM (with our newly updated food menu going into effect from 6PM to midnight). Live music will be provided by local bluesman Derek Fairchild starting at 7PM. We’ll have new ODM tees available featuring a ouija board inspired design.

After all that, we’re also doing an Oktoberfest + Sloppy Seconds event from Thursday Sept. 28 through Saturday Sept. 30. The “Sloppy Seconds” refers to the fact that we’ll be tapping all the remaining kegs of awesome beer on tap from our 1 Year Anniversary event, so folks who missed that event will get a second shot at trying a bunch of them (with 20 special kegs on for the anniversary, undoubtedly most will be pouring a few days later). We’ll also be pouring a bunch of German lagers and doing special Bratwurst Po Boys.

  1. Congrats to the team at Old Devil Moon!! Although I don’t frequent this spot regularly, I sure do appreciate the solid beer list, the beer knowledge that they share, and the 4 oz. pours so you can try more of them!!

    In addition to the beers that will be on tap when the doors open at Noon, they will be tapping an additional special keg every hour on the hour starting at 1pm. To add to the anticipation, they even provided a fun riddle of sorts with clues about each one:

    1PM) This beast of an anniversary beer from central CA is a special blend of 4 limited yearly releases, all big and barrel aged. The blend changes every year. We have the 2015 vintage with two years of cellaring on it!

    2PM) The name of this massive solera method anniversary beer from SoCal is named in French but translates to “willow.”

    3PM) This big yearly release (we’ve got the 2016 vintage) is named something like “calculator,” but backwards.

    4PM) The beer is named after “an isolated hill with steep, often vertical sides and a small, relatively flat top.” This is an imperial beer featuring cocoa, cinnamon, cayenne, & bourbon and rum barrel character.

    5PM) A beloved big stout from down south (but a special version with vanilla, cocoa, and coffee). You’ll want to *race* over here for a taste of this one.

    6PM) ?????

    7PM) This award winning sour from the East Bay replicates the flavors of peach cobbler.

    8PM) ?????

    9PM) The company that makes this beer is named after “a small waterfall, typically one of several that fall in stages down a steep rocky slope.” It’s an awesome sour aged in spiced rum barrels.

    10PM) ?????

  2. Ok, that was a lot of info. and unless you are a total beer nerd like me probably unnecessary. That is why I didn’t bother answering the riddles above but if you would like to know………

    Lastly, for extra added fun Old Devil Moon’s fortune telling photo booth will be FREE from 3pm-5pm

    Hope to see some of you neighbors there!
