Show Kennesaw, GA. some sud love!
What’s up, Brew Heads!
How the hell was your weekend? I trust all went well because mine was as Jay-Z and Kanye say, “Cray!” Of course, it’s short for crazy, but I met a lot of people, ate a lot, saw a lot, and, of course, sipped a lot. I will be posting some flicks up later on that documented this blur of a weekend, but deserving immediate attention is a good friend’s official launch of his brewery, Burnt Hickory!
Tonight, Tuesday, May 29th, Georgia has been blessed with yet another brewery. Coming out of Kennesaw, Georgia, my boy and Co-founder Scott Hedeen, Brewmaster Taylor Yates, and the rest of the Burnt Hickory Posse are hosting their release party at the Taco Mac Kennesaw location (600 Chastain Rd, Kennesaw, GA 30144; 770.874.7781) starting promptly at 6:30. Here’s what their kegs will be pouring directly from the Burnt Hickory Brewery complete with descriptions, their awesomely quirky names and humorous artwork:
Ezekiel’s Wheel. Pale Ale, 6.5% ABV. Clear with fine citrus hops.
“We just call it Zeke. Compare to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and 3 Floyds Alpha King.”
The Fighting Bishop. Belgian Style Tripel.
“Made with green peppercorns. Strong Belgian with golden color and spicy taste.”
Big Shanty Graham Cracker Stout Oatmeal Stout, 9% ABV.
“Made with cinnamon and graham cracker.”
Cannon Dragger IPA Imperial IPA, 8%. Highly hopped IPA with Simcoe/Amarillo/Columbus/Chinook hops.
“Compare to Two hearted/90 minute/Deviant Dales.”
The Didjits Blood Orange IPA IPA, 7%.
“Made with citra hops and oranges.”
I have had the pleasure to try some of their beer over the past year or so, and trust me, Burnt Hickory knows what the hell they’re doing! Here's their Twitter too. Congrats on realizing your dream, B.H.!
See you there I hope!
