Cool Happenings: Wild Heaven and Big Tex Beer Dinner

 Atlanta is going beer-dinner crazy!

With Atlanta Beer Week around the corner, almost every night has brews and grub being paired up. Well every beer dinner I've had at Big Tex Dectur has been phenomenal. Now Wild Heaven Craft Beers graces the table alongside Chef Rick Watson & Co.’s gangster fare. Of course, Wild Heaven and I go back like bra strap (see here) and Tex has received a lot of Ale love as well including this post.
This dinner is coming up next Wednesday, October 23 at 7 p.m. at Big Tex in Downtown Decatur (308 W Ponce de Leon Ave, Decatur, Ga. 30030). The menu sounds mouthwatering. Here’s the official release. Holla!
Your homey,
Ale
