Fathom Bistro on Shelter Island Pier on San Diego Bay is celebrating its 1st anniversary this weekend with a party!
Typical craft beer tap menu from Fathom's website
URBAN EXPLORER--Thanks to the relationships he’s fostered in the craft beer world, Fathom Bistro Bait & Tackle founder Dennis Borlek has assembled quite the tap list for his spot’s first anniversary weekend, which begins today and extends through Super Bowl Sunday (although you’ll find no football watching on the Shelter Island Pier sanctuary).

Special beers being poured during the anniversary weekend include a cask of Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin, plus De Dolle Arabier, De Dolle Oerbier, Cuvée Alex Le Rouge, and Brasserie de Silly Enghien Noël. There will definitely be Pliny the Elder, as Borlek was a college roommate of Russian River’s Vinnie Cilurzo.

“Come join us for our one year anniversary,” says owner Borlek, “It has been one crazy, fast & fun year! Thank you EVERYONE that has taken the challange to find us on Shelter Island! My goal has been to make the BEST Sausages, Burgers and Hot Dogs in town, and serve the best beers I can get my hands on! 2014 is going to be a great year, thank you all for your support.”

Saturday will be “Sour Saturday” with beers like Russian River Consecration, Supplication and Temptation (2011 and 2012), The Bruery Oude Tart and Tart of Darkness, Bear Republic aged Tartare, Ballast Point Sour Wench 2012 and Green Flash Super Freak going on.

Regular hours doors open at 3 p.m. Thursday and Friday.  “This weekend for brunch we open at 10 am and will be serving our Island Brunch from 10 am-1 pm. Our regular food menu will be available 1pm to 10pm (last call for drinks is 9:30 pm),” added Borlek.
