A.B.C. Beverage Tastings

August – December 2018

 

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, dicovering 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 Executive Chef Billy Ballou and Pastry Chef David Williams.

 

A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck Bar, the first Thursday of the month (August through December) 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,” where 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:

December 6th: A Little Madness Brewing Co. ( Pensacola, FL)

In 2015, we closed on a property full of invasive kudzu in the hopes of bringing our dream of opening our microbrewery to reality – only to discover that no land use code existed to develop our dream. So we did the next logical thing – we lobbied to write a new code to make it possible for breweries, brewpubs, distilleries, and wineries to exist outside of Pensacola city limits! Stay tuned as this woman/family/brewer owned and operated microbrewery makes its journey.
