I hope you all had a great weekend. I know that I did. Last Thursday, I went to Muss & Turners for a $20 beer tasting hosted by Bob Townsend of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The event was fantastic with about 20 people all trying beers that were well over $20. We had an imperial stout, and barley wines including one that was cellared for 8 years from the Dogwood Brewing Company that no longer is in existance. Many of the beers were priceless in that sense. I took great notes on each of the beers, but like an idiot, I left them on the table so I cannot remember them by name, although with a little research, I could probably figure it out. I do remember an American-style barley wine (think: hopped beyond belief) which tasted absolutely brilliant and had a wonderful grapefruit aftertaste. Anyways, M&T does these tasting every week and I plan on going to more and this time, remembering my score card and keeping track!! Besides giving Bob a media kit, the owner of Terrapin Brewery in Athens, GA, Spike, was also there. I set up a meeting to talk to him so that is very exciting as well! Here is a candid picture in the middle of the explanation of the styles.
Design Specs- I just got my first design mock ups from my web developer. Please comment and tell me what you think.
There is a food & beer pairing going on at M&T tonight so if you want to come out, I will be there from 6:30 to approx. 8:30.
That is about it for now! Won’t be long now!
