Christy and I returned to beautiful North Park on Sunday after a weekend in San Jose with family. Having missed the first days of San Diego Beer Week, we realized good taste demanded that we visit a pub for our evening meal. We chose Tiger Tiger Tavern.
Tiger Tiger is one of our favorite recent additions to the 30th Street beer corridor. The beer selection is top notch, the food is wonderful, and the atmosphere is friendly. They are also big into bike culture. In fact, their Sunday Beer Week event was a Kegerade Parade. That consisted of a team of Tiger Tiger staff and patrons biking all the way to Pizza Port in Ocean Beach, picking up ten kegs, and riding them back to North Park for immediate tapping. Christy and I are increasingly pro-bike, but we were too late (and too un-athletic?) to join the parade. Instead we enjoyed the fruits of their labor. I have to say, Bacon & Eggs imperial porter is a lovely beer. If you like your dark beers rich and complex, seek it out.
We were a bit too exhausted from travel to think about taking beautiful pictures and sharing deep thoughts, but I felt a quick Tiger Tiger shout out was in order. Oh, they also just opened up their back patio, which is smoke free, so check that out.
