Check out my Atlanta Beer Week video with Mike Jordan and Thrillist!

Peep this video and all of the awesome events for Atlanta Beer Week!


What's Up Fellow Sippers!
With the 8-day Atlanta Beer Week hitting Georgia's capital by storm (it's going to be crayyyyzzzzay from the 8th through the 16th!), it only made sense to do a video here describing a few of the many speeezots to indulge in the world's greatest beverage! 
With that being said, I linked up with Mike Jordan and the Atlanta version of his hipster website, Thrillist.Com, (Whaddup, Mike!). We hit up TAP in Midtown, Deckard's Kitchen and Kegs on Ponce, and The PorterThe video came out hot, as I collaborated with my man Chef Matt Deckard and bragged about him winning at the recent Battle of the Burgers in Atlanta (peep my picture of his winning entry), plus the cool Porter bartender Justin (who calls me "Ales") boasting about all of the awesomeness going on at his bar in Little Five Points. It came out pretty dope! 


Here are a couple of video notes: 

  • That brew I was sipping in the first scene was Red Brick's Brick Mason Imperial IPA, potent potion of hoppy goodness (9.5% ABV, 90 IBUs), made right here in The A!
  • For those serious geeks who won't let it slide (and me being a perfectionist), I did say in the video that The Porter (#4) and Brick Store (#7) were Top 5 in stead of Top 10 in the world according to RateBeer, but hey, that is a good 'eff up, right?

Besides the video, here is a list of all the craziness poppin' throughout the ATL. Hopefully I will see you at a few of these locations and events. Holla!!!!:
