For most of a year, a couple of years back, Jane the Cafe Manager lived in Chicago -- and Remy of Mojo braved the cold and made the trip out East time and time again. The two spent a fair amount of time riding bicycles to, from, and between Chicago's ample stock of breweries. There was one clear favorite: Half Acre Beer Company. Remy even begged the bottle shop for just one keg to bring back in the Penske on the return trip in the Spring.. They said no, of course, to the warm bumpy ride that would certainly ensue. But two years later, here it comes! And not one, but four kegs!
Some folks from the brewery are coming, and we'll be ready with flight supplies. There's a limited supply of Half Acre coming to The City, so you'll want to get it while the getting's good. Before Remy and Jane drink it all, that is.
Divisadero Art Walk is back -- falling smack in the middle of SF Beer Week, and on Rice Paper Scissors night! Mojo will be featuring Tom Smith's series of ink drawings, titled Shittyscapes. Join us for fresh art, great beer, and delicious food.
The choices have all been made, and some are already Beer Week history. Here's where we are now, but don't get too used to it! These guys have great taste.
Jazz Night at Mojo
We are having another night of music at Mojo Bicycle Cafe. Admission is free, but tips and consumption are greatly appreciated.
Bring a crew! We have a whole new space to for musicians so there's plenty of room for everyone!
We are excited to announce that music is back at Mojo. With the addition of some space for performers and the ongoing cold and rain, we hope that some entertainment in the neighborhood will bring folks together.
Our first show will feature one of our very first performers some 8 years ago, Jack Tone Riordan. He will be performing with a jazz trio, hopefully on a regular basis as he has in the past.
Have a great turkey day! See you on Saturday.

Berryessa Brewing Company is invading Mojo. It's actually already begun. Now, through Wednesday, October 26th, every line that runs dry will be replaced with a fresh Berryessa brew, until we cheer(s)fully surrender at 5:00pm on Wednesday -- at which point we'll pull out the boards and the tiny glasses. If you want to know the many facets of Berryessa, this is your week.
Amador Brewing Company's co-founder and brewer, Will Pritchard, will be joining us at Mojo to drink his beer, talk about his beer, and tell us all about brewing in gold country! We've been proud to be Amador's only San Francisco account, and have happily hauled their beer to Divisadero St for the last four months. On Sunday, October 9, starting at 5:00 pm, we'll be pouring a selection of 5-6 beers of Will's choice, and are ready with our flight supplies.

Our first Race Wait is this Friday night! Race Wait is our new series of brewery-centric evenings. This week we'll be pouring Moonlight Brewing Company's three special saisons side by side: Best Laid Plans, Foreign Influence, and Wee Nibble. Keeping them company will be three Moonlight standards, and we're ready with tiny glasses so you can try them all.
We'll also be welcoming the work of Oliver-Paul Adams to the Mojo walls. Let's toast him and the excellence of Moonlight with a saison -- or three!
