Hungover pig-out party

Illustration by SARAH HANSEL

Does the long slog of Beer Week have you searching for hangover remedies? Boozehounds say the best way to recover is with, you guessed it, more booze. But what’s even better: An entire smoked pig plus booze. For the fourth year, Tank House BBQ & Bar (1925 J Street) will be giving away free pork in its shindig with Anderson Valley Brewing Co. at 3 p.m. Saturday, March 11. It’s a chance for both businesses to strut their strengths: smoked meat and craft brews. In this year’s Beer Week roast, AVBC will take over the taps at Tank House to serve eight of its highly regarded Mendocino County ales: Heelch O’Hops, Ee Tah! IPA, Poleeko Pale Ale, Hobneelchn’ Hoppy Saison, Boont Amber, Summer Solstice, Blood Orange Gose and Barney Flats Nitro. Come early! The pig has been gobbled up quickly in years past.
