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, wineries and distilleries, discovering 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 Chef Jason Hughes.
A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck, the first Thursday of the month (August through December) and will feature a local presenter discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tastings of beverages with four small plates to complement each tasting. Classes will cover the basics as well as specific information regarding the history of the brewery/winery/distillery and their beers, wines, 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 $30 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, reservations are required; be sure to make yours by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 850-287-0200. The featured theme for October is as follows:
October 5th: Doc’s Hop Shop (Pensacola, FL)
Doc’s mission is to further educate themselves in the art of making fine adult beverages and to share the art of making these beverages with others that are interested in learning. They strive to engender an appreciation of fine micro brewed and imported beers, wines, and adult beverages among those of us who make them. They meet at various locations across the Panhandle area: Pensacola Florida, Gulf Breeze Florida, and Santa Rosa Beach Florida.
