Black Diamond Meet-N-Greet Saturday January 17th, Decatur!
When Jon Rosen from R&R Beverage company approached us about a new distributor with new beers entering the Atlanta market, we were skeptical. But then we tried the beers and were quick to convert. Black Diamond via Concord, CA brews some fantastic beers, and while the left coast is synonymous with big, hoppy beers, that’s not all they do well. Their Peak XV is an Imperial Porter brewed w/ cocoa nibs and vanilla beans, leaving us quite verklempt. True to form though, their IPA’s are delicious and have quickly earned not only shelf space here in the shop but also a semi-permanent row in the coveted cooler. Oh yes. This Friday from 2-4pm Michael Hall from Black Diamond will be in the shop to discuss their beers and hopefully share some of their secrets. We’ll have the following beers on tap for growler fills and flights: Rampage (Imperial IPA), Jagged Edge (American IPA), Peak XV (Imperial Cocoa/Vanilla Porter) and a rare treat, a keg of their Maiden Voyage, a 10% American Sour barrel aged for 3 years
