A.B.C. Beverage Tastings

January – June 2019

 Atlas Oyster House is proud to present the next installment of Atlas Beverage Classes (A.B.C.). This semester we will be focusing on local breweries and distilleries, discovering what is going on in the beverage world right here in our backyard. In addition to the beverage tastings, we will feature small plates paired with each beverage, as prepared by Sous Chef Chad Gorey and Pastry Chef David Williams.

A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck Bar, the first Thursday of the month (January through June) and will feature a presenter discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tastings of beverages with four mini appetizers to complement each tasting. Classes will cover the basics as well as specific information regarding the history of the brewery/distillery and their beers or spirits.

There are two classes every month, each an hour and a half long. The first class begins promptly at 5:00 p.m. with the second class beginning at 7:00 p.m. Class cost is $20 per person (plus tax and gratuity), per class, which gets each participant one tasting of each of the featured beverages. In addition, throughout the class, participants should be prepared for “pop quizzes,” when we will be giving away T-shirts, beer glassware, gift certificates and more. Seating is limited so reservations are required, so be sure to make yours by emailing maria@goodgrits.com or calling 850-217-2347. The featured themes for each class are as follows:

 

January 3: Proof Brewing Company (Tallahassee, FL)

Allen Truesdell: Brewery Representative

 Owners Byron and Angela Burroughs began with Proof’s early roots in 2007 in a small boutique liquor store on Tennessee Street. They then moved onto open Tallahassee’s first brewery in 2012 in the Railroad Square and now, they are moving to an old Coca-Cola plant which will up their production from 6,000 to 30,000 barrels a year. Proof Brewing Company is reinventing the craft beer industry — producing big, bold, flavorful beers while remaining committed to true artisanal brewing methods in an evolving industry. They have created dozens of unique, award-winning beer styles offering a wide range of pale ales, IPAs, lagers, stouts, sour ales, barrel-aged beers, and more.
