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:

 

April 4: 3rd Planet Brewing (Niceville, FL)
Brian Detweiler: Master Brewer
3rd Planet is a small but rapidly growing brewery owned by two military veterans with a passion for craft beer. Located in the heart of Niceville, Florida, the fourteen tap handles pour our signature beers as well as brews from other local breweries. This past summer 3rd Planet Brewing opened its second and largest brewery. Tim McCool, co-owner of 3rd Planet, said his brewery has a family-friendly atmosphere where people come to talk, play trivia and enjoy the outdoor food truck.
Dank Side of the Moon paired with Barracks St. Bruschetta
Bluewater Hefeweizen paired with fried crawfish mac bites, Creole honey mustard vinaigrette
Bear Creek Bramber paired with baked oyster “Kilpatrick,” pickled okra and slaw
Boggy Bayou Stout paired with blueberry cobbler and honey mint gelato
