Scofflaw Brewing Plans to Expand a Third Time

December 12, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

A little over three months ago, highly celebrated, IPA driven and high gravity specialists, Scofflaw Brewing, celebrated their one year anniversary. From their inception up until that celebration, they tripled their production capacity and here we are again with plans to expand. Prior to their second expansion, it was rare to find cans in the market and once they upgraded the canning line was back up and running, but here we are again, expanding. I wonder what great things are coming this time.

I recently spoke with Jonathan Ingram, Media Relations at Scofflaw. He share some great news concerning some upcoming projects as well as what might make its way into cans this time around. Read More

Grumpy Old Men Brewing Company | Aska Pale Ale

June 27, 2017 | 1 Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 5.8%

Almost as refreshing as their beer is the attitude that Steve Weber and Chipley McKnight bring to the modern day craft beer industry. They are the two grumpy old men behind Grumpy Old Men Brewing in Blue Ridge, Georgia, and they are not looking to be hip or game changers. Nor are they interested in some of the funkier trends that tend to occupy the minds of today’s craft beer maestros.

Event Preview | Brewed Food 2017 Tour

Jensen Cummings is nothing, if not passionate about craft beer and great food. The enthusiasm for his latest venture, Brewed Food, is jumping out of the receiver, as we chat over the phone about his upcoming events in Seattle, Cincinnati, Atlanta and Louisville. Each event, hosted by Brewed Food and local restaurants and brewers, are a craft beer and food lover’s dream. The menus feature everything from Koji Coulette Steak and Malted Barley Risotto, Bourbon Barrel Stouts and Summer Ales. But Cummings is clear: This is not a beer dinner. Don’t expect a few different courses paired back to a handful of brews. This is something much larger. This is a movement – and he wants you to be a part of it.

Second Self Beer Company | Manic Pixie Dream Beer #1

April 18, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 13.9% | IBU: 64

Atlanta’s Second Self Beer Company sent me two cans of Manic Pixie Dream Beer #1. At first, I didn’t want to try them. Same beer, slightly different artwork on each can, and enough of a singular nature to this that I felt like I should keep it in mint condition. After all, it could be worth something in the future. But then again, they aren’t Beanie Babies. They’re cans of beer. So in I went.

Three Taverns Brewery | White Hops

January 31, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 6.5% | IBU: 55

For me, porch drinking and beer are synonymous with family. My favorite beer of ALL time happens to be Three Taverns Brewery White Hops, which was introduced to me by my brother. For many of us, beer is deeply rooted in the emotion and stories associated with it, which is why I’m so drawn to Three Taverns White Hops.

SweetWater Brewing Company | SweetWater 420 Extra Pale Ale

ABV: 5.7%  IBU: 41

When does something reach official classic status? Is there a committee? Are there longevity rules? Popularity requirements? No matter. What’s really at stake here, dear reader, is the over-proliferation of the term “classic.”

Eventide Brewing | Eventide Kölsch

August 22, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 5.3% | IBU: 24

I am grumpy and thus, I pen today’s beer showcase in the spirit of protest.

This is me standing up out of my chair, going to the window and yelling, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!” Or, something like that.

See, it’s another lovely Atlanta August day: 93 degrees and humid. That’s no surprise—that’s August in Georgia and that’s not why I’m yelling from my window. Read More

Event Recap | Orpheus Brewing’s 2nd Anniversary

May 31, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

From inception, Orpheus Brewing, and head brewer Jason Pellett, have brewed under the philosophy “don’t look back.” This, as Jason has stated, is because the goals are always ahead of you, and as mythology’s Orpheus learned, looking back can lead you astray (or more specifically, lose your wife Eurydice back to Hades when abandoning your faith and looking back to ensure she was still following you out).

And obviously, brewing forward-reaching beers, while staying laser focused on future goals has worked extraordinarily well at Orpheus, as the brewery continues to fill any and all gaps in beer styles available in Atlanta. Read More
