The Porter goes bananas for Craft Beer Week!


Lagunitas? Georgia tap takeover? Allagash? New Belgium? Orpheus? Oh my!

Whaddup?!
With American Craft Beer Week well underway, one of the most revered brew pubs in the world, The Porter Beer Bar (and one of my favorite local Atlanta joints in general), is featuring a few themed nights along with some more craft brew-pouring awesomeness next week. Check out my listing below starting today, plus the Porter being featured on Atlanta Eats which included me getting interviewed by show host Steak Shapiro during the stellar episode! Oh yeah, and a little while ago, I did another video featuring the Porter for my Cruisin' For A Brewsin' show here.
Look for more to come soon!

Monday May 12th 
It’s the Lagunitas takeover! It will be 13 taps and the biggest Lagunitas takeover anywhere outside California. They will be tapping the Waldos' Special Ale (9.2%) at 4:19 and also the last keg of my boy Reid’s collaboration (Beer Street Journal) with Lagunitas called the Fusion #19—an American Wild Ale aged in Pinot Noir oak barrels. Get it! Here is the video…

Wednesday May 14th
It’s a Georgia craft breweries’ takeover! There are 16 confirmed to participate in this southern liquid orgy!

Friday May 16th
It’s the Allagash takeover featuring 15 taps, including some very rare special treats like the Red Howes Stout brewed with cranberries at a roasty 8.5%!

“And why only one week?” my boy at The Porter, Christopher, asks. Let’s keep it poppin’ on May 20th, 21st and 28th, ya heard?

Tuesday May 20th
Representin’ Brugge, Belgium, it’s the De Halve Man release!

Wednesday May 21st
New Belgium launches six brews with three of ‘em having their barrel-aged alter ego, plus their Wood Cellar Manager Lauren Salazar and Brewmaster Peter Bouckaert will be in the house!

Wednesday May 28th
My boy Jason from Orpheus and a lovely imbiber at The Porter.
It’s the Orpheus Brewing release coming from right down the street from Piedmont Park! Congrats goes to Jason, Brandon, and the Orpheus crew! I can’t wait to try their brews for real.

See y’all at a few of the gangster events!

Cheers!

Ale
