Re: “Georgia Brewery Watch 2015

Are any of the new breweries hiring for a beer rep or event coordinator, if so I am extremely interested

Re: “Your Georgia summer sixer

Summer is macro brew season.

Large quantities of cheap yellow beer is the best option for picnics, pools, tubing, and barbecues.

Re: “Your Georgia summer sixer

So this is the same Gose at Wrecking bar that was "too watery" in an earlier restaurant review? Let the beer expert review the beer, and the food expert review the food.

Re: “Your Georgia summer sixer

I just wanted to give some much needed credit to some of the folks behind Emergency Drinking Beer: Paul Calvert for his collaboration with the Wild Heaven crew in the overall composition of the beer, and Ian Jones of Victory Sandwich Bar and Alvin Diec for the can design. I don't think the folks at Wild Heaven care to give any credit to the folks behind this beer who aren't within their own walls. You're welcome, dudes.

Re: “Homebrew: Atlanta's DIY beer community makes a splash

ATL homebrewers should try out
It's a new forum created for discussion between local homebrewers.

Re: “Abby Jackson, homebrewer

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 Check it out!

Re: “Atlanta homebrew resources

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!

Re: “There's a tier in my beer

@muzakmaneric the distribution laws are backwards, frustrating, obsolete, business crippling, yes, but we've been buying Yuengling in Georgia for 7 months now

Re: “Atlanta homebrew resources

The website for Home Brewing supplies in Lilburn is .org and not .com

Re: “Homebrew: Atlanta's DIY beer community makes a splash

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!

Re: “Homebrew: Atlanta's DIY beer community makes a splash

That would be "gluten intolerant," not "glucose intolerant." Google "Daniel Ashbrook" and email me if you want more info on the beer.

Re: “We want brew!

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

Re: “Georgians on Sunday sales

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???

Re: “Georgians on Sunday sales

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.

Re: “Praying for rain and against Sunday sales

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.

Re: “Praying for rain and against Sunday sales

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.

Re: “There's a tier in my beer

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 don’t 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.
