Beer: It's What's for Breakfast in South Bay
What's better than rolling out of bed and heading straight to a Yelp Elite Event on a Sunday morning? Rolling out of bed and heading straight to a Yelp Elite event serving gourmet sausages and craft beer of course! South Bay and Peninsula Elites were recently treated to pajama party of epic proportions with Beerunch! @ Original Gravity Public House.
Downtown San Jose's first craft beer bar, Original Gravity's mission is to scour the globe and bring to the area an eclectic and quality beer selection. The Public House is an intimate space built to feature our craft beers on 25 rotating taps along with an impressive bottle list. For our particular event, OG featured for different "tastings" (which were pretty close to full pours): Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils, Allagash White, Avery IPA and Deschutes Obsidian Stout. As brew aficionado Mikey U so eloquently said, "The beer selection was an on-point escalation from crisp lighter beer to Belgian wheat to an IPA and concluding with a hearty stout. A well rounded flight; accessible enough to initiate the uninitiated and chased enough to please the versed beer enthusiasts." And in case we had guests that weren't beer drinkers, bottomless mimosas with mango Tampico were also available to Elites.
On to the eats! Gourmet sausages and duck fat fries with truffle salt were on the menu for this particular YEE, a perfect pairing at11:30 am. "Absolutely delicious, said Michelle K. "I only tasted one during the event, so I stayed a bit longer and got the Boudin. 'Twas lovely. A side of duck fat fries with a mixture of bbq and wasabi mayo really complemented the meal. (Yes, it sounds like an odd combo, but man is it tasty.)" Kes D "was also happy to have a chance to talk to the folks who works there about where they get their sausages and the fact that they have vegetarian options. Oh yeah... Their fries are like crack. And those Yelp Life fingerless gloves are perfect for keeping your hands warm while you stuff your face with sausage."
The Yelp portion of the party concluded at 1:30 pm, but a more than a handful of guests stuck around for some Sunday funday. "Kuddos to the OGPH staff for being totally welcoming and super awesome party hosts," cheered Cristal C. "Yelp Elite Event + my new favorite kick it spot = Sunday morning epicness!" Sarah H called the shindig "Beerunchaful!! Loved loved this event especially after a rocking the Niners game from the day before! I enjoyed my time there and the owners were pretty awesome,friendly,and approachable! I will be coming back again with friends next week to taste more of the beers they have!" Hopefully we'll see you at OG Public House again!
