Aged to Perfection in Just One Year | barleymash Celebrate First Anniversary with DJ Jazzy Jeff!

May 10, 2013

What do you get when you add four million ounces of beer to four thousand bottles of whiskey? The answer to that math problem isn’t a problem at all. In fact, it’s cause for celebration. The folks at popular Gaslamp District establishment, barleymash, are thrilled to report that it equals one heck of a year, and to celebrate, they're throwing a party with DJ Jazzy Jeff!

Part of the Verant Group of restaurants, barleymash is thriving this May as it celebrates one year in business. Over the past 365 days, barleymash delighted diners by serving up more than 16,000 barleypies and tapping nearly two thousand kegs of beer. Both the restaurant philosophy and menu offerings draw heavily from two barroom staples: beer and bourbon. Menu items, like the popular barleypie and more, are made with barley flour, barley syrup and fine ingredients from Ballast Point Brewery.  The restaurant’s name refers to the typical grain mixture used in the brewing and distillation process of both beer and bourbon.

Celebrating with a cause is right up their alley at barleymash. Over the last year, the restaurant supported programming from 12 different charities on a local and national level. The Liver Foundation, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation have each received financial support from this 5th Avenue favorite.

Join the one year anniversary celebration this month at barleymash on May 21 from 9 p.m. until closing. Entertainment for the evening is free of charge and features legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff. Best known for his role on a popular sitcom, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” DJ Jazzy Jeff went on to become a prominent R&B, soul, and neo soul record producer and deejay.

barleymash is located at the corner of 5th and Market in the San Diego Gaslamp.  For more information, visit barleymash online.
