Davis St. Patrick’s 2012: Let the Session Begin!

Get excited…we’re throwing their first-annual St. Patrick’s celebration in Davis this year! Instead of a one-day celebration, we’re dedicating an entire week to our favorite holiday. From Monday, March 12th to Sunday, March 18th, we will be hosting seven unique and authentic events, all of which will be free to the public. Additionally, we’ll be offering exclusive food and drink specials throughout the week.

Being the only Irish-owned and Irish-run pub in town, we want to make sure we give everyone in the community an opportunity to celebrate St. Patrick’s and experience our pub in their own way. This year, you can be mellow throughout the week with traditional fare and a pint or join the madhouse on St. Patrick's Day for a truly festive time. Let the session begin!

 

Monday, March 12 – TraDISHional Monday

To continue our week of specials, we are hosting a night of beyond-the-norm pub fare.  Bring your friends and family to enjoy this one-night-only menu, which will include authentic Irish favorites such as corned beef and cabbage and traditional lamb stew.  Plus, if you order a 20-oz pint of Guinness, you’ll get your own pint glass to take home! (One per person.)

Come grab a beer and get your St. Pat’s gear! Pre-order their St. Patrick’s 2012 t-shirts (custom designed by de Vere’s) between now and March 13. Then come pick it up and have a pre-St. Pat’s pint at the pub! Order your t-shirt in advance so you won’t be caught without your green!

On the third day of St. Pat’s week, join our in-house experts and ambassadors from various whiskey labels for whiskey tastings, education, and cocktails featuring our favorite spirit.  From 6pm-8pm, you’ll be able to bounce around multiple tasting stations while expanding your palate and taking advantage of 50% off Whiskey Society memberships if you so choose.  Enjoy 2 tastes for $5 and 5 tastes for $10.

 

 

Thursday, March 15 – St. Baldrick’s Day

That’s what St. Baldrick’s Day is all about—going bald for a good cause. Come shave your head—and collect donations for doing so—or watch others get buzzed bald. De Vere’s has partnered with the Keating Raphael Memorial to host our first-ever St. Baldrick’s event in Davis. All money raised will benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Tomorrow Is Derby Day at de Vere's Pub

Each year, in Louisville, Kentucky, a two week long festival culminates in an epic thoroughbred horse race that is watched the world over. The Kentucky Derby, a Grade I stakes race, is ten furlongs or one and a quarter miles in length, and involves the fastest, top competing colts, geldings and fillies in the United States. Also touted the “Run for the Roses” since the winner is draped in a rosy blanket, this competition garners more spectators and bets than any other stakes race of its kind. This year, watch the “fastest two minutes in sports” at de Vere's Irish Pub, which will be hosting an unprecedented Derby Day event this year on Saturday, May 7th beginning at noon.

The pre-race festivities will include specials on Mint Juleps and Pimms Cups, which will start at only $5, as well as a big hat contest for the ladies!

You may have seen photographs of the old days when high society attended horse races as a matter of course, and all the well-to-do women would don extravagant lids, hoop skirts, and frilly dresses. So, classy gals, wear your hat that takes up the most real estate possible, and contend for to-be-announced prizes and glory! Don't have a big hat already? Try Sacramento City Dry Goods or the Village Hat Shop in Old Sacramento in an effort to support local businesses, something that de Vere's endeavors to do as well at every possible turn!

Mint Juleps proffered will be made with Woodford or Pure Kentucky bourbon, and our bartenders have been gearing up to make the best ones you've ever tasted. For more on the making of these drinks, check out these youtube.com videos:

Mint Julep: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lP2VQ9eiUo&feature=related

Pimms Cup: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjXuBbs3wlk&feature=fvwrel

The race itself will commence at 3pm and suspense will fill the pub as our patrons gather to witness history in the making. All will be on the edge of their bar stools, and from under the rim of their big hats, as they sip a well-constructed cocktail and cheer for their favorite thoroughbred, a new contender will strive ahead to become the new victor of the Kentucky Derby. De Vere's extends an invite to you, your friends and family to enjoy this annual race within the warmth of our family's pub.

All About Sacramento Burger Month at de Vere's Pub! (Part One)

Sac Burger Month (or  hashtag #sacburgermonth on Twitter) is a joint effort between de Vere’s Irish Pub in Since May is officially National Hamburger Month, we thought it would be great to promote burger awareness here in our beautiful city of Sacramento.

Each week in May, the fine chefs at de Vere’s Irish Pub will be showcasing a unique featured burger masterpiece that will only be available for that week only.

Here’s the Burger Breakdown:

Week 1: Sunday May 1 – Saturday May 7

The Tostada Burger

Served on a lightly toasted, locally baked bun from The Grateful Bread, this freshly double ground beef burger is topped with a crispy tostada and corn pico de gallo salsa con queso. The burger itself sits on another layer of the house made salsa, a nice red tomato slice and another tostada layer to give it a great crunch. For an added kick, the buns are lightly spread with a made-from-scratch Serrano chili mayonnaise.

This burger is paired with a classic Corona beer during Cinco de Mayo week where de Vere’s will be celebrating the Batallón de San Patricio (aka Drinko de Mayo)

 

Week 2: Sunday May 8 – Saturday May 14

The Firestone Burger

This juicy cheeseburger is cooked in a red wine, shallots, and balsamic vinegar based sauce that gives it a powerful sweet and tangy flavor.  The double ground smoked beef patty is infused with smoked pork and topped with bacon, smoked cheddar goat cheese and fried onions. This flavorful burger is served on a lightly toasted, locally sourced, freshly baked bun.

We paired this burger with an Abbey ale from New Belgium Brewery out of Colorado. The chocolatey undertones allow this beer to hold its own with the smokiness of the Firestone Burger.

 

Week 3: Sunday May 15 – Saturday May 21

The Stadium Burger

Local sports fans, this one is for you! This double ground beef patty is stuffed with 1.5 ounces of sharp cheddar cheese, coated with whole grain mustard, and smothered with a house made relish containing delicious peppadews. The chef’s searched far and wide for the perfect soft pretzel bun to compliment this beautiful burger creation.

Henry personally selected an organic wheat beer that goes perfectly with the pickled peppered flavors that top this burger. Mothership Wit from New Belgium Brewery is brewed with wheat and barley malt, as well as coriander and orange peel spicing resulting in a balance of citrus and sour flavors held in suspension by a bright burst of carbonation.

Sac Burger Month (or  hashtag #sacburgermonth on Twitter) is a joint effort between de Vere’s Irish Pub in

Irish pub to replace Soga's

"Brothers Simon and Henry de Vere White are co-owners of the popular de Vere's Irish Pub in Sacramento and will be branching out to Davis by September 2011. The de Vere Whites hail from Ireland and plan to bring an Irish flair to the Downtown Davis dining experience.

"We're an Irish pub, we cater to a wide variety of people, from families with kids to the business community," said Simon. "We're very food focused here, so I think what helps us be successful is being family owned and operated."

De Vere's Irish Pub signed a 10-year lease at 217 E St., a 4,800 square foot location formerly occupied by Soga's. The new location is 1,000 square feet larger than the Sacramento location.

De Vere's will take over the building formerly occupied by Soga's, an Italian and American food restaurant that permanently closed on Nov. 21 2010, after filing for bankruptcy.

"We liked the look of the building, we wanted to be downtown," said Simon. "We thought that downtown Davis had a great feel to it, and it seems that that's where the focus of the food industry is."

De Vere's will provide a hearty menu filled with traditional Irish food, as well as the familiar cheeseburger and sandwich for the more timid restaurant-goers.

Most of the food served will be made fresh in-house, including curing their own bacon, butchering their own meat and making their own pudding.

"We like to say we make everything here, except for Ranch," said Simon.

Despite Soga's recent bankruptcy, the de Vere Whites were not discouraged from branching out into Davis with a second pub after two successful years in Sacramento.

"We were always very intrigued with Davis. Great community and culture there. Family-oriented town, family business," said Simon. "We thought that going into a place that has a university system was very compelling and thought we would be a good fit for Davis."

For those looking for an authentic Irish pub experience, de Vere's is the place to go. De Vere's Irish Pub provides both authentic Irish cuisine and authentic Irish interior design complete with family pictures, paintings and Irish antiques.

"In Ireland, kids are at the pubs. You're born in the pub, grow up in the pub, get married in the pub," said Simon. "Every Sunday is family Sunday, we discount the kids menu. We definitely try to attract the family aspect."

De Vere's, winner of Sacramento Magazine's Best Pub Food award of 2010, prides itself on its hospitality, food and cozy atmosphere.

The opening of de Vere's is good news for the alcohol savvy as well, offering an extensive alcohol menu with 89 varieties of whiskey and 66 varieties of scotch."

A toast to two of Sac's best pubs

It has been just two years since this pub opened in the heart of midtown and already I cannot imagine the Sacramento dining and night life scene without it. Community spirit, wisdom, integrity, charm – de Vere's has all of that, along with excellent attention to detail when it comes to serving its beer

Dine Downtown: Preview of de Vere’s Irish Pub Menu

De Vere’s not only offers the largest whiskey collection in Sacramento, it offers a full restaurant menu including weekday happy hours, daily lunch and dinner and even a weekend brunch menu.

Dine Downtown: Preview of de Vere’s Irish Pub Menu

By Tracy Arnold

"Prior to this last Wednesday, the only reason I had ever visited de Vere’s Irish Pub was for the occasional pint of Guinness. If you are like me, I challenge you to change your perspective and discover the food behind the drink. De Vere’s not only offers the largest whiskey collection in Sacramento, it offers a full restaurant menu including weekday happy hours, daily lunch and dinner and even a weekend brunch menu (that I notice includes a bacon waffle – with chopped bacon in the waffle batter – intriguing!).

For those of you who have never visited de Vere’s, it is a traditional Irish pub – loud atmosphere, table tucked in nooks, two large bars and an outside patio. It is a great place for happy hour after a long day or participate in a weekly trivia night contest. However, I discovered they should also be on one’s list of dinner destinations.

de Vere’s Dine Downtown menu offers a three course dinner comprised of either beet salad or soup of the day (we had Irish Wedding soup, YUM!), followed by a second course of either braised lamb shoulder stew or lemon Dijon chicken, and the dessert course choices include Bailey’s cheesecake or crispy bread pudding served with vanilla ice cream and fresh berries.

The beet salad, is a mache lettuce salad with both golden and red beets and herbed goat cheese. The Irish wedding soup was my favorite choice in this course, best description is a home-made chicken sausage and noodle soup with kale and beans – exactly what this January weather calls for. The lamb dish was served like a stew with barley, fresh carrots and a mint salsa that made the entire dish pop. The chicken is a de Vere’s favorite, roasted chicken and red seasoned potatoes served with cabbage – after all what is an Irish meal without cabbage?

For dessert, the crispy bread pudding alone is worth trying out de Vere’s Dine Downtown menu. It is one of those dishes that will soon be featured on the Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate - it is a cross between French toast and a churro, deep fried goodness rolled in sugar and cinnamon served with ice cream, fresh raspberries and blueberries topped with caramel – it cannot get any better!

While there, I also learned that de Vere’s just added to their regular menu a fully loaded (with peas and bacon) mac and cheese that has the potential to surpass Esquire Grill’s as the best mac and cheese in town. It offers whiskey pairing dinners to members of the de Vere’s Whiskey Society, and in addition to hosting the city’s biggest St. Patrick’s day celebration, de Vere’s hosts Sacramento’s annual St. Baldrick’s shaving day to raise money for childhood cancer research."
