Dahlia’s Pour House to celebrate two year anniversary

dahlias1It seems like just yesterday that my friend Andrea told me about her desire to open a beer bar of her own in Riverside. After much hard work and more than one setback, her dream came to fruition nearly two years ago in the form of Dahlia’s Pour House in the King Street Beer District.

To celebrate the momentous occasion of two years in business, Andrea and the entire staff of the Pour House are throwing a day-long bash on Saturday, July 12. For the celebration, a line-up of activities has been released including:

• First 50 guests will receive a free Dahlia’s coozie. After those are gone, guests can purchase a coozie for just $1.
• Each hour a different Florida Brewery will be featured with $4 drafts.
• For every two (2) Dogfish Head beers purchased, guests will receive one (1) raffle ticket for a chance to win one of 12 Dogfish Head 120-minute IPA bottles. Loyalty club members get a free raffle entry.
• Free beer swag throughout the night.
• Free Champagne toast for everyone with staff and the owner at 5:00 p.m.
• Coaster Flip Contest at 6:00 p.m. — House cash to top two finishers.
• Connect Four tournament at 7:00 p.m. — House cash to top two finishers.
• Corn Hole Tournament at 4:00 p.m. (Pre-sign up at the bar, $10 per team, house cash, as well as cash prizes awarded).

Dahlia’s to host “Running of the Taps” Friday

There is a cliched, but common saying among adventurers; why did you climb (or raft, or motorcycle, or whatever) Mt. Everest (or the Colorado River, or the Dragon’s Tail, or whatever)? The simple answer is nearly always; because it was there. Intrepid beer-drinkers now have a challenge designed to test their mettle happening at the newly opened Dahlia’s Pour House in Riverside. It is being called the “Running of the Taps” and is a beer-drinking session that involves drinking every one of the 85 beers Dahlia’s has on tap.

The event is the brain-child of craft beer lover Tony Sottile. “I just wanted to have a session event with a few close friends,” he said. “But figured there are probably a few more degenerates like myself that would enjoy this as well. And what better way to meet other said degenerates [than to] go have a beer or twenty.”

Those who take up the challenge will not find themselves facing 85 full pints or beer, though. The challenge will be to drink 85, four ounce servings of beer presented in flights of four beers. Still, the grand total of beer to be consumed by each participant who completes the challenge comes out to 340 ounces, or roughly 21 pints.

The event is to take place over a span of about eight to nine hours, so it equates to about two or so pints an hour. To keep the participants nourished – and perhaps a little more sober – Dahlia’s is springing for food during a couple of sustenance breaks.

Sottile says of the event, “We want to cap it at no more than 15-20 people. We’re really only looking to get guys [and] girls together that truly enjoy beer, talk beer and [want to] meet others that enjoy the same.  We aren’t really interested in people showing up just to get hammered.”

The event will take place on Friday, July 27 at Dahlia’s Pour House (2695 Post Street) in the King Street Beer District beginning at 12:30 p.m. Cost is $100 per person.
