Update! New Holland, Prairie Ales and GA Craft Beer Fest are coming!

It's on in Georgia!

Whaddup!

Although I will be heading to Pittsburgh and Cleveland to do some more Cruisin’ For A Brewsin’ (stay tuned for that coverage), I wanted to continue making sure all of my homies know about what else is cracking for Atlanta Beer Week.
Besides the stellar tap takeovers at top-of-the-class bars including The Porter, Brick Store, and Argosy, there is the Georgia Craft Beer Fest on Saturday, October 25th from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Candler Park, featuring arts, live entertainment, grub from the city’s top food trucks, and more than 100 craft beers to sample from all over the great state of Georgia! Indulge safely.
Here’s more info: www.georgiacraftbeerfestival.com
Oh! And New Holland is pouring some gangster tonight and I want to give a formal "Whaddup!" to the debut of Kregs, Oklahoma’s Prairie Artisan Ales at the Argosy tomorrow (Friday) with both starting at 5. We will certainly welcome you with open arms!
See y’all soon!

Cheers!

Argosy goes gangster for Atlanta Beer Week!

Atlanta Beer Week starts on October 18th through the 25th and East Atlanta's Argosy is set to show off!

Whaddup!

I just celebrated my birthday at the Argosy due to a lot of homies working there (thanks for the love Armando, Donald and staff), a lot of fellow brew nuts living close by, and hell, it's one of my top 5 spots to get the best beer available in ATL. 
Well, to show how dedicated the Argosy is, here is what they have brewing for Atlanta Beer Week starting on October 18th through the 25th. Bell's, the Georgia debut of Krebs, Oklahoma's Prairie, Evil Twin, Westbrook, New Holland and the Beer Camp roster will be featured and I am loving it! 
Ultimately, the whole week will be nuts. I mean come on, I stick by my claim of Atlanta being one of the sickest beer cities in the nation (a good sick I mean). This special week will help solidify my word is legit.
Below is what the official website is saying to keep us in suspense. They also have a Facebook page and Twitter. Of course, I've got your back too when it comes to updates so be ready!

Cheers!

I have too much family in town for my birthday to make the jump over there, so it is going to be a hard one to miss, but I want to make sure y'all knew about it. Save a sip for me!

Cheers!

Wine vs. Beer: It’s Infographic Time!

Check out these fun facts comparing brew with vino! Guess what I’m rootin’ for?!

Whaddup!!!

Every once in a while, I make it a point to post an infographic on this site because they are fun, entertaining, informative, and easy to get due to great illustrations and extensive research by numerous credible sources. This one below compares what I consider to be the greatest beverage in the world, beer, with the liquid grapes. Learn things like…
  • Which competitor is healthier?
  • Which one is better to cook with?
  • What was here first, a brewery or a winery?
  • What beverage is the U.S. drinking more of, wine or beer?
  • What is the most expensive bottle of beer and wine ever sold?
  • Which country is drinking the most beer and wine worldwide?

Special thanks to CompareCamp.com for the dope graphic below. Clock on it, enjoy it, and get schooled!
