A.B.C. Beverage Tastings August – December 2015


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 two spirit brands. In addition to the beverage tasting, we will also be featuring small plates, paired with each featured beverage, as prepared by Fish House Chef Matthew Brown.

A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck Bar on the first Thursday of the month (August through December) and will feature a presenter along with Great Southern Bar Manager, Josh Goldman, discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tasting 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 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.
