A.B.C. Beverage Tastings January – June 2020

Date/Time
March 5, 2020
5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

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 Sous Chef Chad Gorey.

 

A.B.C. will be held outside, on the Deck Bar, the first Thursday of the month (January through June) and will feature a local 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/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 $25 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 taylor@goodgrits.com or calling 850-287-0200. The featured themes for each class are as follows:

March 5th: Murder Creek Distillery (Brewton, AL)

Starting in 2018, two fathers and two sons had the idea to make a moonshine that sparkled like Murder Creek’s waters and was smoother than a calm gulf wave. All their batches are distilled, mixed, bottled, and labeled on site. Murder Creek Distillery’s goal is to make each batch of moonshine crisp and smooth by distilling them to the highest purity in small batches. Each batch is filtered through charcoal and a unique pore bed to remove all impurities.

  • Apple Pie Moonshine paired with a wonton sandwich with blue cheese wipe and eel sauce
  • Peach Cobbler Moonshine paired with grilled chicken skewer, slaw, sauce sorcerer
  • Dixie Chocolate Liqueur paired with bacon-belly skewer, shaved Brussels sprouts, chocolate drizzle
  • Dixie Honey Liqueur paired with strawberry shortcake
