What’s Brewing for Father’s Day? Lots!!!

Get Dad a buzz!
Sunday, June 19, is going to rock in the ATL because there are so many eating spots dedicated to showing heads of the table some love with the suds. Here are a few restaurant promotions that stood out that are pretty creative in the field of quenching the thirst of Atlanta poppas with ales and lagers galore.
So ditch the tie and get dad some vittles and a cold one…or two…or three at one of these hip spots.  
Oh! And look out for the first giveaway on my site! It is coming in the spirit of Father’s Day and it will make a lucky Dad and his pride and joy toast off this weekend with a bang! Trust me! Look for the announcement later on today around 1ish.

First and foremost, the Wrecking Bar is finally opening on Father’s Day! I couldn’t wait for the bottom floor of this Victorian-style house on Moreland Ave in Little Five Points to start pouring ales brewed on premises by the great brewmaster Chris Terenzi. A special shout out goes to the owners, Bob and Kristine Sandage! Thanks for adding to the growing kick-ass beer scene in the A! Here is the official announcement along with some other beer-related Father’s Day throwdowns around the city.

Hops for Pops!
On Sunday, June 19, the Wrecking Bar Brewpub and The Porter Beer Bar are teaming up to celebrate brew-loving dads across Atlanta! Beginning at noon, the Wrecking Bar Brewpub will officially open its doors (and taps at 12:30) to the Little Five Points neighborhood. Simultaneously, The Porter will tap 19 Mikkeller single hop beers starting at 12:30pm. Jump on the MARTA (the closest stop is Inman/Reynoldstown a couple blocks away) and then dotingly carry Dad back and forth on the five-minute trek between these neighborhood pubs for the entire afternoon and into the evening!
