Hey Beer Nuts!
I know, I know. I have been gone for a minute but when family priorities call coupled with some assignment blessings from the gods of journalism (including Jezebel Magazine, GRIP Magazine, Men’s Book and others), I gotta answer! But enough of the excuses, I have so much stocked up for you, my cherished readers, to be entertained for a good minute through this blazing month of July and beyond. In fact, I was about to post something but then the inauguration of this weekly SweetWater get-together at Café 640 (640 N. Highland Avenue, 30306) Atlanta, GA took priority due to it starting tonight!
Read the official info below and get your sippin' and eatin’ on, and help the South’s #1 brewery continue keeping the local Chattahoochee River Basin drinkable! I’m off to the Wrecking Bar for a private media dinner tonight followed by the Tribe Called Quest documentary premiere (I love them!), so I‘m booked, but hopefully I will make another one of their Thursdays in the near future. I mean, damn, check out their grub to the left!
Oh, and come back tomorrow. I have something seriously gangster for you!

About Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper:
Established in 1994, Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (UCR) is an environmental advocacy organization with more than 5,000 members dedicated solely to protecting and restoring the Chattahoochee River Basin—drinking water source for 3.5 million people. UCR was the 11th licensed program in the international Waterkeeper Alliance, now close to 200 organizations strong. From the north Georgia mountains to the Florida border, the Chattahoochee River is impacted by unplanned development, storm runoff and trash from industries, roads, and construction sites, and discharges from sewage treatment plants. Withdrawals from the river by municipalities and industries also affect its health through consumptive loss of water that is not returned to the river, impacting downstream water quality, recreation and ecology. While significant improvements have been made in the river, much remains to be accomplished. UCR actively uses advocacy, education, research, communication, cooperation, monitoring and legal actions to protect and preserve the Chattahoochee and its watershed.
