In honor of MLK I’m brewing all day today. Trying to get three batches (that’s 30 Gallons!) done so they’ll be ready for the brew-ha-ha. Come by whenever if you are in town and around.
Nashville doesn’t have many options when it comes to finding a fresh beer brewed on-premises. Of course, neither does Atlanta. I’ve been to Boscos in Hillsboro Village before, but last night was the first time I ordered their beer sampler ? 8 draft brews, including 4 seasonals. Last time I was at Boscos, I was
Our esteemed Atlanta-based brethren, Sweetwater, has released a limited edition Festive Ale which I picked up at a local package store the other day. The bottle itself is devoid of description of any kind about the beer, so I was forced to do some searching on the internet. From Sweetwater’s website: A full-bodied, high-octane brew
Now, of the 6 Belgian Trappist monasteries in the world, we can cross Westvleteren off our list of beers to try. Of course, this doesn’t mean we won’t want to try it again. Jeff’s friend brought him back a bottle of the Westvleteren 8 awhile back. And since there was such a hubbub a few
It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve brewed… We actually did brew a second batch of our peach Belgian amber, Southern Monk, 8 days ago. But tomorrow will mark the return to Monday nights for us. With Halloween just around the corner, it seems fitting that we brew another pumpkin beer. Plus, think our
As many of you are already aware, Bryan Adams has tentatively titled his 11th studio album (release date set for February 2008) “11.” If you don’t believe us, check out his personal website. And for those of you curious as to why Monday Night Brewery is reporting Bryan Adams news, you should know that Bryan
Tonight we tapped the Harvest Ale. No, none of us are farmers or know anything at all about farming…but everyone has to have a harvest ale these days (especially to celebrate the 90degree October days in Atlanta). Actually the true credit for this Harvest Ale goes to our new friend Troy. Troy showed up to
Tomorrow morning, Joel, Jonathan and I are meeting at Monday Night Brewery’s home for the past year (Joel happens to live there, too) and relocating the brewery to the garage of my new crib, about 5 miles west. Why make such a move? With some continuing sanitation issues, we thought that moving our supplies out
Several weeks ago, I spent a week in the U.K. (Scotland and England specifically). Over the course of the week, I tried at least a dozen different beers, sticking predominantly to British drafts. From Deuchers to Greene King to Old Peculiar to Triumph, I tasted what I have been reading for the past year –
The entry? Our smooth, smoky Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale. How could we NOT win?! We’ll keep you posted.
Thanks for all of the feedback! I’ve done some tweaking based on your comments. For one, I tried to make him NOT about to give birth to an alien hillbilly baby. So is this one better?
Another Monday is upon us and we’ll be brewing another batch of the Roundhouse Pale Ale. We’ve got some sweet new (used) carboys and have some WeissGuy on tap tonight. We’ll also be sampling the Southern Monk Belgian to see if it’s got any legs. Please come by if you want to see jonathan in
We’ll be working through kinks in the new site in the next couple days. Joel is responsible for any errors. Feel free to email him directly.
I’ve been hearing these Colorado snobs rant about their New Belgium Brewery for far too long. They seem particularly adamant about a certain “Fat Tire” beer. A few friends (thanks Phil and Kristen!) vacationed to Colorado, toured the brewery, and brought a whole mess of beers back. It was heaven. I won’t go into much
The Brewery (Joel’s house) has been under some major renovations but we are pleased to announce that many projects have come to a close over the weekend. Included in the list of v2.0 upgrades are the following… Kitchen 2.0: Sports a new countertop, sink, stove, microwave, bottle sanitizer (otherwise known as a dishwasher). This facility
Despite rumors to the contrary we will be brewing tonight in our limited facilities. Plan for tonight is: Brewing (starting this week)- 5 gal. batch of the Drafty Kilt Transferring (from primary to secondary fermentation) – 10 gal. Hoo Brew Bottling – 10 Gal Swashchuckler Consuming – Bog Monster, Swashchuckler, Drafty Kilt, CowTipper, Base Jumper
As I am the culprit for the cancellation of brewing tonight I believe it necessary that I defend my reasons. Yes, people are rioting on the streets of Atlanta due to the cancellation of brewing. In fact, I just found out that one brave gent flew in to Atlanta specifically to brew with us on
I realized over the weekend that we don’t always clue in our web readers to what we actually will be doing any given Monday. Of all days to post this should be the most important. So…I’m thinking I’ll do a basic format as follows: Brewing (starting this week)- 10 gal. batch of the Weiss Guy
