Atlanta is going to be crazy this weekend!

Yep! I'm geeked like my homey here!

My brewing collaboration with Beer Street Journal, One MusicFest, Little 5 Fest, Fado BrewHaHa Festival, Atlanta Arts Fest, Square Pub Chile Fest, the fight…Sheesh!

After returning from a serene visit at Barnsley Resort with Toyota and Terrapin Beer Co. in the mix, I returned to a ridiculous itinerary filled with a plethora of crazy events especially on Saturday in Atlanta! Check it out:

First thing in the morning, I am homebrewing an imperial stout unlike any other with my main man and award winner Jon Shari. Stay tuned for its release during the Holidays. Then...

Beer Street Journal, Jailhouse Brewing and Ale Sharpton Collabo!

I did a brewing collaboration with gangster beer website BeerStreet Journal and Hampton, GA’s JailhouseBrewing. We are debuting it on Saturday, 1 p.m., at one of my top places to get my sip on, Midtown’s Cypress StreetPint & Plate (6th and Cypress St.)! We wanted to rep the South to the fullest so this one, using the Jailhouse Misdemeanor Amber Ale as the base, is going to include tea! There will also be other versions of it including peach and a shandy (half lemonade). Of course, art and music is involved, so come through and check it out!
Here’s a description I wrote below, the flyer with all the info, and the video at the top on how it was done...

Two of the most dedicated Atlanta-based beer aficionados, Beer Street Journal founder Reid Ramsay and beer authority Ale Sharpton, decided to come up with a beer that reflected the charming personality of the South and its burgeoning beer scene. After a few sips of their favorite beverage and some brainstorming, they decided to fuse the essence of iced tea, coriander and other all-natural flavor boosters with the base of an esteemed beer brewed within Georgia. Jailhouse Brewing’s Misdemeanor amber ale fit the bill, the Hampton-based brewery opened its doors to Reid, Ale, and a group of other dedicated enthusiasts from Atlanta to decide between a series of test batches what would work for public consumption, and voila!  The experiment turned out to be a success, a date for the launch complete with art, music, and delectable grub at Cypress Pint & Plate has been set (Saturday, September 14th at 1 p.m.), and the rest is history.

Come be a part of it and show love for local!

Crazy, right?
