- I don't think it's Navarro Carr but maybe I'm mixing things up. No pun intended
I like the bartender that was at Sound Table a year and a half ago then left, he had suspenders so maybe he's a mixer. Whatever the hell, he could recommend a tire iron to me and I'd try to drink it. Wish he was still there, anyone know who I'm talking about and where he's at?
I'm a bon snob. It's a palindrome.
my buddy "asshole snob" doesn't see what the problem is.
No self-respecting human would refer to himself as a "beer snob" or a "music snob" anyway. That's a term for kids and assholes, in my experience.
Paul knows what he's talking about, Chad. He's a genius about all things alcoholic including beer. Visit Paper Plane & learn. "Interview somebody worth a damn like Freddy from Sweetwater." ?? If you think Sweetwater is a model of excellence in brewing, you don't qualify as a beer snob. I'm sure they're nice people & they don't make bad beer, but they certainly don't make great beer. Wild Heaven, Monday Night & Jailhouse are much better local breweries.
As a beer snob this article made me cringe so hard. The guy has no idea what he's talking about as concerned with beer so how the hell it made it into the paper blows my mind. Interview somebody worth a damn like Freddy from Sweetwater.
"A bartender serves you a drink.
A mixologist serves you a drink with attitude (and suspenders)."
mixologist - still not a real thing.
see "bartender" in the dictionary for the word you're looking for.
paul calvert is a boss.
I don't always pour beer. But when I do, I prefer a less-chubby, weed-smoking, Frisbee-golf-playing craft. Stay drunk, my ATL
Wait, why are we asking the leading mixologist in Atlanta about beer? Give me some recipes or something.
The LA IPA is killer!
I was wondering that, too...I swear Nick speaks perfectly clear English! Can't wait to try some of Cherry Street's brews!
Great write-up; I love their beer.
But seriously, [what's] going on [with] the [post hoc insertions]. Were his [original answers in] Russian?
You guys are brutal, how about celebrating a successful business in a sh*tty economy written by a local homegrown paper?
That is the sweetest photograph of them. Frame!!
Lorenzo, there is a huge reason for growlers in GA to me. At Hop City, the closest one to my house, there are always 20 local beers on tap. Not as fresh as straight from the brewery, but not shipped cross country. Many of those you can only get at a bar, since to your point, you cannot buy at the brewery. Which I agree, is ridiculous. You can buy wine at a winery, why not beer at a brewery!? Please GA, come into the 21st century at some point. I would say 95% of my growler purchases are local beers, as I want to support local and don't always want to track down a bar carrying local beers.
BeerSnob, wasn't Beer Growler in Athens first? I think Hop City was first in Atlanta, but I know they weren't first in GA.
BeerSnob, I'm guessing there's more to your comment than meets the eye and "nonsense" is meant to be wry, but for me growlers will be nonsense until we're allowed to buy them at the brewery. When I lived in another state, that's pretty much how we used growlers--to pick up some fresh beer from the brewery. We didn't buy a growler of beer that the owner of some "growler shop" just filled from a keg that traveled thousands of miles to his shop. I still don't see the point in that, except as a novelty. The major advantage of growlers is to be able to take home fresh-from-the-brewery beer, and we're not getting that in GA. Nonsense!
