A.B.C. Beverage Tastings, January-June 2014


Atlas Oyster House is proud to present our next installment of Atlas Beverage Classes (A.B.C.). This semester we will be focusing on handcrafted beers as well as featured spirit brands and our newest addition: cocktails with Josh Goldman, our very own Beverage Director. In addition to the beverage tasting we will also be featuring small plates paired with each featured beverage, as prepared by Fish House Chef Billy Ballou.

The A.B.C. (Atlas Beverage Classes), will be held outside, on the Deck Bar (weather permitting), each month (January through June) and will feature a presenter discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tasting of beverages with four mini appetizers to compliment 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 is one class every month, each an hour long. The class begins promptly at 6:00 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.
