ATL homebrewers should try out
It's a new forum created for discussion between local homebrewers.
It's great to see another female homebrewer in ATL. I don't know why there aren't more ladies homebrewing. There is a great forum for homebrewers in the downtown Atlanta area at www.atlantahomebrew.com Check it out!
Whatever! This issue/article is limited and does not promote home brewing as any kind of culinary art. If I wasn't already a home brewer I doubt seriously this article would entice me to explore it any further.
You want info on home brewing you are much better off simply Google searching it.
It was a great vanity piece for the Final Gravity folks and the two guys of East Atlanta Brewery, I mean great color picture on the cover and inside of their handsome mugs, no pun intended.
This probably why even free newspapers are losing readership.
Next time get Bob Townsend to write the main article of the "Beer Issue" and It might be a bit more interesting and informative. But he probably needs to get paid to much to write for your paper, eh?
"Relax and have a home brew!" That's what I'm doing right now.
Eric, just another beer geek!
@muzakmaneric the distribution laws are backwards, frustrating, obsolete, business crippling, yes, but we've been buying Yuengling in Georgia for 7 months now http://www.yuengling.com/n_rolls_into_georgia.htm
The website for Home Brewing supplies in Lilburn is .org and not .com
Correction, Bob Sandage has been in the planning stages of opening his own brew pub for a very long time. The article gives the feeling that the brew pub is just around the corner, it isn't. Just to clarify and not get anyone's hopes up for a new brew pub anytime soon. Great article!

That would be "gluten intolerant," not "glucose intolerant." Google "Daniel Ashbrook" and email me if you want more info on the beer.
The Benevolent and Paternal Order of Elks, originally known as the Happy Corkers, was brought into existence as a private club specifically to make it possible for men to sit in the back room of their local bar on SUNDAY and quaff a brew! Join the Elks Lodge in your town and you can probably drink with Impunity, or with her ugly sister
no, lets not sell booze on sunday.. lets just have people go out to resturaunts, bars and clubs and have them get drunk and jump behind the wheel of their car.. that is a brilliant idea.. that is so much better that just selling it to people and letting them drink at home... hey and while it was mentioned.. now we not only have to worry about drunk drivers but we can now worry about getting shot by some drunk because he doesnt want to be cut off or someone pissed him off, because for some dumb reason people need to have the right to carry a fire arm into a resturaunt???
You can't buy booze on Sunday because it offends all the holy rollers, but you can now walk into a public establishment, with a gun on your hip and thats not a problem, it is also not a problem to go and buy a gun on Sunday either. I am pretty damn sure if you asked Jesus, he would prefer people to have booze over guns on Sunday, pray on that, amen.
Someone didn't do their research. You can't buy in Minnesota on Sunday either and most liquor stores close early during the week and 10 p.m. on weekends. Also no full strength beer or wine available in the grocery stores. You've got it relatively good. Buy in advance and stop crying.
It is easy to blame the lack of Sunday beer sales on the conservative Christian base. While that is part of the problem, the real culprets are the Liquor Store owners and their lobby group. The Liquor Store owners are dead set against Sunday Sales. With their campaign contributions and powerful lobby, they were really the ones to get this legislation killed.
I temporarily moved from Atlanta to Santa Fe a few years ago and it is appalling the way Georgia Brewers are treated. Santa Fe is a town of about 72,000 people. I have three brewpubs within 2.5 miles of my house. All of which allow you to take growlers (jugs o beer) home with you. Some of them dont even bother with distributors because enough locals come in, fill the growler and go home. All of the profit goes right back to the local brewer and allows them to have a rotating beer selection every few weeks. These profits also allow them to bring in bands that you would not think would play at a place not much bigger than Twains such as DBT and Yonder Mountain String Band.
It does not affect just small breweries but also medium to large size breweries such as Yuenling which is a beer I love and enjoy here in South Carolina but due to distribution laws in Georgia it cannot be found. How silly that when I visit my parents in Georgia I have to transport beer from one state to the next...Im sure that is illegal but only if you get caught right?
Wondering why you guys leave out some of the best or worst brew pubs in every issue. What about Rock Bottom, Max Lagers, or Gordon Biersch? Do they not add to the over all demension of your articles on beer in Atlanta? Help everyone, not just your favs.
Every brewery or brewpub adds to the diversity of Atlanta. That's what it's all about right?
Check the bottle, Robin. While their HQ is the Classic City, all Terrapin brews are made in Maryland per Terrapin recipies. The source of the coffee is another Athens mainstay of Jittery Joe's espresso blend beans.
Actually, it's generally advised you NOT use detergent or soap in your beer glasses. Soap residue can affect the presentation and taste of the next pour. Extremely hot water and a lint free rag are sufficient for cleaning your glassware.
If you must use detergent or soap, rinse the glass thorougly, scrub it with table salt, and follow up with more hot water.
sugar or as you say fructose aids hangovers
This was a great Q&A piece. The whole beer column was excellent. Give us more of this!
