ABC Beverage Tastings

Date/Time
May 4, 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:

May 4: Funky Buddha Brewery

“Funky Buddha Brewery was founded in 2010 in Boca Raton, Florida, and is committed to producing bold craft beers that marry culinary-inspired ingredients with time-honored technique. Our mantra is big, bold flavors, made exactingly with natural ingredients. So, for example, if we say a beer will taste like peanut butter and jelly, you can be sure you’ll smell and taste the fresh roasted peanuts and fruity berry jam. Our beers strive towards big, bold flavor. It’s who we are.”

  • Floridian paired with buffalo frog legs, creamy blue cheese slaw
