Epic pumpkin carving and the return of the Ale Yeah! Randle, Friday, October 24th Decatur!
Like peanut butter and chocolate, beer and coffee have often been compatible bedfellows. Why it took us so long to put the two together into one awesome venue however is a great mystery but thankfully Jonathan and company over at Taproom have done just that. A coffee shop that also has an awesome tap list, pastries and snacks from fantastic Atlanta eateries, all that remains is an air mattress and a large flatscreen and perhaps we would never leave. On second thought…
And it’s a natural fit for Ale Yeah! and Taproom to form an alliance and with Halloween approaching we have carved out something for kids of all ages. In hatching this brilliant plan we’re gonna dust off an old friend, the Ale Yeah! Randle. This beer infusing device is now reserved for special events and this seems one worthy of it’s awesomeness. On Friday, October 24th we’ll be tapping a keg of Terrapin’s Pumpkin Fest and randalling their Counter Culture Coffee through it, creating what we believe will be a revolution to the pumpkin/marzen world.
Grab a growler of this delicious concoction and head over to Taproom from 6-9pm for a pumpkin carving contest. For $20 you’ll get a pumpkin, proper carving utensils and a drink ticket. There will be door prize giveaways from Terrapin and Ale Yeah! and fret not, this event is not just for the big kids. Taproom will have drink specials for the little ones as well. Space is limited so contact the folks over at Taproom today to secure your spot @ 404.464.5435.
Kwaktoberfest!! Monday, October 27th – Saturday, November 1st, Decatur!
Next week we’ll be busy putting the finishing touches on our Halloween costumes but there’s an equally important but often overlooked holiday that we’ll be celebrating in Decatur: Kwaktoberfest! That’s right, Kwaktoberfest. The celebration of all things Pauwel Kwak, the Belgian Strong Pale ale served in perhaps the world’s most unique glass, has been pouring for 222 years and the party can’t be contained in one day, it needs a full week!
We’ll be tapping this delicious elixir on Monday, October 27th and every growler fill will enter you into a raffle to win some bombtastic Kwak merch including flags and the exclusive Kwak “wheel”, a serving vessel that holds 4 Kwak glasses, perfect for double dating with your cousins from the old country. And, since this is Kwaktoberfest, every growler purchase will allow you to take home one of the coveted 222nd Anniversary Kwak glasses for a mere $2.22, normally a $10 value!
The party will run all week and we’ll draw the winners on Sunday, so stop in and try this beer for the first time or revisit an old friend.
Reformation Brewery beer tasting @ Barrington Hall Saturday, December 13th, Roswell!
That’s right, it’s time for another trip to historic Barrington Hall in Roswell for our wildly successful series of beer tastings and on Saturday, December 13th at 7pm and we’ll be toasting with one of GA’s newest breweries, Reformation Brewery. Reformation calls Woodstock, GA home and has the distinction of being GA’s first brewery to produce a year round Belgian Dubbel and Triple.
Quite a notch in the bible belt if you ask us. In addition to the aforementioned Cadence (Dubbel) and Providence (Triple) we’ll be pouring their Atlas, an American IPA as well as their newest beer, Stark, an American Porter.
And our good friends from Happy Hour Confections will be concocting a special dessert to pair with each beer. Tickets are a mere $20 and you’ll be able to take home an Ale Yeah! or Reformation pint glass to boot. Details from the bakery to follow and we’re putting the finishing touches on the food vendor, but call the shop today @ 770.992.2246 to secure your tickets before they sell out.
