When you walked through the front door you could smell the beer, hear the band, and you knew that you were in for a good time. It’s been a few years in the making, but we finally opened the doors to our tasting room last Saturday (June 20th) to an adoring fan base. We’ve been working feverishly over past few months to build out the tasting room, raise the money to pay for it all, and continue to make enough beer to quench the ever growing thirst of the GA market.
The day began at 2pm with the first patrons already waiting outside for the doors to open. Over the course of the day, we ended up with almost 300 people coming though the door; all of whom were able to sample 5 different styles of beer ranging from our standard offerings to our cellar series beers. On a hot 95 degree day the most popular beer, by far, was our Kölsch Style Ale, which has become a neighborhood favorite. The day was a real family affair with children playing frisbee, and the four legged “kids” all enjoying cool water and hand made dog biscuits which were provided by Intown Healthy Hound.
The tours began shortly after the doors opened and continued all day. One patron said “I loved the wonky tour” (“wonky” means technical, we asked). The tours covered everything from the types of sugars we are extracting from the grains, why our brewery was featured in an engineering magazine, the intricate keg cleaning process, and the technical reason “Nitro” beers are so smooth.
If you missed our grand opening, no need to fret, you’ve got plenty of time to come hang out with us. We’re open every Thursday from 5:30-8:30pm, Friday from 5:30-8:30pm, and Saturday’s from 2-6pm. There is plenty of parking, great beer, and fun to be had. We hope to see you soon!
