October is crazy in ATL and today’s events prove it!

Besides my b-day (A-hem!), check out some of the gangster events poppin’ off during the tenth month!

I appreciate all your birthday wishes first and foremost. Shout out to Steph Curry’s daughter because I truly do feel blessed.
Anyway, Atlanta is going to be off the meter from tonight going forward and I want to share the news with my favorite people—YOU! From Three Taverns launching their first lacto-fermented sour beer at their brewery, to STK hosting the The Veuve Clicquot En Route Truck, a documentary premier at Sound Table by my dude Bobbito and Stretch Armstrong, Venkman’s hosting free music nights, and a beer dinner at Reformation for starters.
And as for the weekend, forget it! BET Weekend including Future’s party (also on the sidebar), Party At Ponce’s bash (see the sidebar), ATL Pride events, A3C… CRAZY! Regardless how effed up traffic is going to be, it’s worth it! I am going the lazy route and just posting the media release versions for the events, but I have an excuse: It’s my birthday!

Have a good weekend and thanks for the love!

Three Taverns Launches New Sour: Asylum #1!
Looking for an alternative to the onslaught of pumpkin beers this October? Then join us this Thursday night at the brewery when we launch the first in our new series of lacto-fermented sour beers. Sour Asylum #1 is a light, pleasantly acidic, 3.8% sour session beer brewed with 100% pilsner malt, soured with lactobacillus in the kettle, fermented with our house lager yeast and dry hopped with Amarillo and Galaxy. While the “new” DOR regulations may be stopping our standard beer-to-go tours, special event tours are still in play. This unique tour will be $25 and includes a special facility tour with details on the souring process, tastings in The Parlour of up to 36oz., live music, and a Three Taverns glass growler with a 64oz. souvenir fill of Sour Asylum #1. This will be the only tour option for the evening.
Early reviews of Sour Asylum were solid this past Saturday at the GCBF where the keg tapped out early. This is the first of what will be an ongoing series of experimental draft-only lacto-fermented sours, with a new one launching every 4-6 weeks. Expect to see Sour Asylum #2 in early November with a decidedly Thanksgiving theme.
Cheers and hope to see you tonight.

Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives
During the 1990s, Stretch and Bobbito introduced the world to an unsigned Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang, and Big Pun as well as an unknown Jay-Z, Eminem, and the Fugees. The total record sales for all the artists that premiered on their radio show exceed 300 million. The late night program had a cult following in the art/fashion world and prison population as well. All would loyally tune in for the humor just as much for the exclusive tunes. Stretch and Bobbito brought a unique audience together, and created a platform that changed music forever.
