Jonathan is prancing about the Caribbean and we are lost without him. Hang in there, people. Beer yourselves for us until we can be together again…
Ok, that came out wrong. But here’s the bottom line. Joel is on a plane to…uh…Joel, where are you going? And Jonathan is in Italy. Which means no brewing. Folks, we dropped the ball. It won’t happen again.
We won’t be brewing tonight to give Jeff and Hannah a chance to train their new baby in the ways of milling grain and cleaning kegs. We’re hoping to be able to fire up the burners again in the next week or two, so stay tuned!
In late March Tom Maicon from Atlanta Cuisine came by to try some of our beers. (I know… it’s May. I forgot.). Unfortunately at the time he came we had pretty much everything on tap except our two launch beers, Eye Patch Ale and Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale. Still, if you’d like to read some
I have been in Indiana this past week and we stopped in at Kahn’s in Indianapolis to pick up a few brewskies that we don’t get distributed down here. Purely for competitive research, mind you. We promise to have zero fun in consuming these beverages. I picked up some Goose Island, Founders, Three Floyds, Hair
We’re going to attempt to start a new feature in which we briefly document some of the Monday Night die-hards. How often can you expect a new “Face of Monday Night”? Approximately whenever nothing else is going on. So let’s get to it. Scott “Social Butterfly” Williams Scott is what we call a workhorse. He’s
The Queen canceled on Joel, so we’re back on for brewing tonight. See you between 8 and 10!
Due to a variety of factors, we are canceling brewing tonight. Specifically, Jonathan is feeling rough, I am stuck at the office, and Joel has dinner plans with the Queen of England. Lame? Yes. Yes, indeed. But as a consolation, we are making some good progress on the business front and should have a full
Ladies, gentlemen, and ladies, today is a day unlike all others. It is our esteemed marketing guy and master of mind control’s birthday. Happy birthday, Jonathan. If you’re looking for a special way to recognize your favorite brewery-in-planning blogger, here are a few gift ideas… – An ironic tee shirt – 3-ply toilet paper –
No matter what your mommy taught you, it pays to win. I was recently the victor in a beer fantasy football league, where I edged out Chipper Dave in the finals. Dave is a most gracious loser, which makes me think he’s used to it. The stakes were high: a locally brewed 6-pack. Dave delivered
Terrapin, the newest of Georgia’s 3 breweries, has been a busy bee. Their most recent side project, the Terrapin Gamma Ray, is a honey wheat wine that is simply outstanding. If you haven’t had it yet, see if you can snag one before it’s gone. According to Steve at Terrapin, Basically, its a German style
The Final Gravity Strong Beer Competition takes place tomorrow at 5 Seasons – Prado. Entries were supposed to be in a few weeks ago. We are turning ours tonight. We’ve been bestowed the “Cloak of Leniency” for no apparent reason, except they want to drink as many beers as possible. Beers in the competition must
Much has been said and written about the Budweiser American Ale, especially in craft beer circles. For awhile I didn’t have the heart to try it, mostly because I have a real problem paying for a Budweiser product. But since they were serving it at the Decatur Beer Fest, it was essentially free. So Jeff
Yes, this is the time of year when breweries start to tout their prestigious GABF medals. Well we’ve got a little bling of our own. Today we were named the clear victors in Adam’s “Best Homebrew Sites” contest. How did we win? You, the tireless masses, voted. And I voted twice. And I think my
This summer’s focus has been on refining a handful of beers that we think hold the most promise as MNB flagship launch beers. So at the end of August, what do we have to show for it? Let’s start with the Eye Patch Ale (originally Swashchuckler IPA). The goal with our IPA was to make
