The Atlanta Beer Beat sheds light on news of brewery openings, special tappings, firkins and one-off batches, bottle releases, dinners, pairings and more!
St. Patrick’s Day, a day which I believe is to celebrate drinking; based on the word on the street, is a day for celebration in Atlanta. If you’re going out in the Atlanta area, you have numerous options for green beer (read: literally any bar in the city), but if you’re looking for more than Coors Light with green food dye, read on for the craft beer happenings!
Berry Belgian Waffle is a truly unique beer that pushes forward the possibilities of beer and brewing style. We can all appreciate breweries that focus on hitting style profiles to the letter. These breweries strive to make classic examples of beer – those efforts often resulting in successful campaigns at the Great American Beer Festival. Berry Belgian Waffle may not be the next GABF medal winning beer out of the booming Georgia brewing scene; What it is, instead, is a fun example of a small brewery, Red Hare Brewing Company, having fun and pushing what is acceptable and expected from American beer.
Beer geeks. We know lots about beer: style, ingredients, which temperatures are best to store lagers versus quads. We know beer laws in different states and the exact release days for Hunahpu and Hopslam and Dark Lord.
But when was the last time you actually (for real) knew the guy who came up with the recipe for the beer you ordered last night at the bar?
Georgia summers are long and hot. You’d swear they start in mid-April. So thank God the good folks at Marietta’s Red Hare Brewing Company thought to brew Whabbit Wheat, a summer beer with a delightful twist of fresh fruit and Saaz hops. It’s a beer that makes the drenching humid days a little bit more tolerable.
