SATURDAY: A Nightmare on 24th St. Takes Over Almanac Taproom

Elm Street in San Francisco is a one-block alley between Franklin and Gough between a credit union and a retirement home.

Not very nightmarish, really.

So instead of pacing its sidewalks hoping for a fun-size Baby Ruth and staying awake so nobody kills you in your dreams, head to Almanac SF Taproom this Saturday, Oct. 28, from 3 to 11 p.m., for A Nightmare on 24th St. instead. It’s a big, giant celebration of the Devil’s dark powers, but mostly a party devoted to seasonal, barrel-aged beer, largely of the hoppy and/or pumpkin-based varieties.

There’s going to be music by DJ Cutly, a costume contest with brewpub swag for the winner, beer specials all night, and a $20 Halloween taco plate with three different types of tacos — duck with green mole, chorizo potato, and squash and nopales — along with lager-braised Rancho Gordo beans, Valencia rice, pork croquettes with queso fundido, pickles, and a pumpkin-spice cupcake.

Drive a stake through the heart of whatever plans you had for the night and head on over, because brewmaster Jesse Friedman assured SF Weekly that the back patio has been properly exorcized and Windexed, and there hasn’t been a demonic possession out there for several days at this point.

A Nightmare on 24th St., Saturday, Oct. 28, 3-11 p.m., at Almanac SF Taproom, 2704 24th St.. Free, with food and drink for purchase; almanacbeer.com/taproom/
