A.B.C. Beverage Tastings
January – June 2019
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 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 Sous Chef Chad Gorey and Pastry Chef David Williams.
A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck Bar, the first Thursday of the month (January through June) and will feature a presenter discussing the highlighted beverages. Classes will consist of four tastings 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 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, which gets each participant one tasting of each of the featured beverages. In addition, throughout the class, participants should be prepared for “pop quizzes,” when we will be giving away T-shirts, beer glassware, gift certificates and more. Seating is limited so 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:

 

June 6: Peaden Brothers Distillery (Crestview, FL)
Trey and Tyler Peaden: Owner/Distiller/Operator
During Prohibition, moonshine was a big industry in Okaloosa County, Florida. It was the only way for some people to make a living. The majority of the whiskey from this time period came from the Blackwater River Forest. The Peaden Brothers Distillery is a true, family operated, micro distillery. Everyone participated in some facet of the business. The work from cooking the grain to the distillation of the cool, smooth whiskey is all done by hand. The Peaden Brothers have brought back that old Southern tradition of Blackwater Whiskey again.
