Working at a growing brewery

11.13.2015 | 0 Comments

Monday Night Brewing has only been around for 4 years as a revenue-generating entity, so in one sense we’re still making up for 5 revenue-losing years of home-brewing out of our garage. In those 4 short years, we’ve experienced double-digit and triple-digit growth annually, now distribute to two states, and employ a motley crew of

Monday Night recap: “The wit with no name” edition

07.06.2010 | 51 Comments

We brewed our Belgian-style wit last night, complete with fresh-grated ginger. Things went well. That’s all you need to know. But here’s something else you need to know. We need a name for this wit of ours. It will almost certainly be our 3rd beer, and it still has no name. So here are the

Monday Night recap: “Nothing to do” edition

03.16.2010 | 0 Comments

Usually we’re pretty busy on Monday nights, what with the brewing, kegging, and carrying on. We were supposed to be busy this Monday as well, bottling. But someone (I’m not going to say who, but his name rhymes with Neff Neck) carbonated the wrong keg in preparation. Since all we had to do was keg

Monday Night recap: “Puppy fight” edition

08.11.2009 | 2 Comments

Last night we shattered the record for the number of puppies attending Monday Night Brewing. Yes, that’s right. We had not one, but TWO puppies in attendance. After a brief sniffing and licking debacle (I’ll spare you the details), the puppies became BFF’s. There are even rumors that they Facebooked each other this morning. While

Monday Night recap: “Cool that wort” edition

05.26.2009 | 2 Comments

Despite a 2.5 hour long sparging debacle (our first attempt at a mashout), we ended the night at about 10pm. Thanks to Melvin. Melvin, avid homebrewer and self-proclaimed super genius, was kind enough to let us demo his chilling system as we think about upgrading our current setup. Blah blah blah, submersion pump in ice

Monday Night recap: “A stout turnout for a stout brew” edition

05.12.2009 | 15 Comments

The story is all too familiar. You’re getting ready to brew a stout when your CEO calls and says he’s not going to make it because he got free court side tickets to the Atlanta Hawks playoff game. It has happened to the best of us, and even Joel and I are not impervious. What

MNB gets a new stalker

02.11.2009 | 11 Comments

Well, well, well. Now we know what Britney Spears feels like. Because it’s only when you’re truly popular that you get the weirdest of all stalkers. Yesterday I was alerted to the fact that there is now a @FakeMondayNight on Twitter. Whoever is behind the account not only took our Twitter background and icon, but

Beer wars: Travis gets a new website. It sucks.

01.27.2009 | 3 Comments

A little while ago our mortal enemy Travis got himself a brand new website. I know what you’re thinking: But isn’t that like putting lip stick on a dead possum? Yes. A dead possum that can’t brew a decent beer. And we’ll be the first to admit: we’ve given Travis and his merry crew of

Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, come on down!

There are some weeks that leave you craving a particular beer. The frigid Atlanta winter is upon us, and while it’s not as cold as the homes and hearts of some people, it’s still too dern cold for me. The temperature, plus the busier-than-usual work week, has put a craving in my belly. A craving

Travis, listen up

11.21.2008 | 3 Comments

Today’s Beer Haiku Daily has an important life lesson for Travis, who is dancing precariously close to another smackdown, like a little kid trying to prove he’s a man by touching a hot stove. He keeps leaving these little quip comments on our blog. In and out like a ninja, but not a cool ninja.

Back on track and brewing again

04.21.2008 | 2 Comments

It’s Monday. Normally we brew Mondays. Sometimes we forget yeast. But tonight, we are ready to go. We’ll be trying to tweak our Swashchuckler IPA a bit based on feedback from the Brewhaha and our ongoing beer battle with Sir Travis McStupidhead. Unfortunately we won’t have much to drink given that our last 2 batches

Results are (slowly) trickling in

And surprise of surprises, Canada responds first! Alan confirmed our victory over Travis and his swill. We’re still waiting on our American judges to weigh in before calling it, but things are looking good for Monday Night Brewery in the feud department. Travis, we could use a cleaning boy if you’re interested. It’s an unpaid

MNB vs. CNYBrew: the video

04.08.2008 | 9 Comments

A Beer War has been a-brewing. Travis and his shady CNYBrew gang threw down the gauntlet and then promptly picked it up again, admitting defeat in the face of our superior brewing prowess. We’re still waiting on tasting results from Alan up in Canada, Brad out in California and Ted in Chicago, but we thought

The Unibomber delivers a package

04.03.2008 | 4 Comments

Our Syracusian Scoundrel Travis came through. I received in the mail today what appears to be a shoddily packaged bottle of beer. I’m guessing it’s his “IPA,” which is going head-to-head with our own IPA on blogs across the country. Nay, the WORLD! Look for a trouncing in the near future as we test his

No more tickle fights

Many of you know Travis and his juvenile antics. Peddling us as rednecks and Civil War impersonators. He’s pawned himself off as some sort of investigatory journalist, to which I have one reply (via Zoolander): Do you understand that the world does not revolve around you and your do whatever it takes, ruin as many

YAAAARGH!! (A treatise on taking a party seriously)

03.18.2008 | 1 Comment

Most of the guests at our Brewhaha Saturday came in casual clothes. Which is fine. But let’s not forget that the invitation SPECIFICALLY said “full-on pirate garb.” Fortunately, not everyone chose to ignore our invitation. Thanks to Dick, who not only came to the party, but documented himself in what appears to be “full-on pirate

Travis: the homebrewer who couldn’t

01.20.2008 | 3 Comments

Wonder of wonders, Travis is at it again. And while his accusations about MNB being Civil War reenactors are quaint, they are, unfortunately, false. Of course, this stereotypical drivel about the South is the kind of nonsense we’ve come to expect from Travis, so it wasn’t much of a shock to us. We do have
