ABC Beverage Tasting

Date/Time
March 2, 2017
5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Atlas Oyster House is proud to present our next installment of Atlas Beverage Classes (A.B.C.). The classes will be held outside, on the Deck Bar, on the first Thursday of the month (January through June) and will feature a presenter along with Great Southern Bar Mixologist, Shaun Dixon, discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tasting of beverages with four tapas plates 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. 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 and 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:

March 2: Big Top Brewery

“For years Brewmaster Josh Wilson has been crafting great beers in Sarasota, Florida and for years his friends have been enjoying his art.  It made complete sense to form Big Top Brewing Company to bring those artfully crafted beers to everyone. When we started Big Top Brewing Company, there were no craft breweries in the Sarasota area and we set out to fix that. We have a great town, with a great history, and the only thing missing was that great local beer.”
