Here's the whole damn story about some upcoming events:
- Three new Lazy Magnolia beers make their Georgia debut at Taco Mac Cumming on Wednesday. Lazy Magnolia is out of Mississippi. How much can you tell someone about Mississippi beers? Not much I bet. Me either. Let's get educated together.
- The super-wacky, sour cherry, Pappy Van Winkle barrel-aged Baltic Porter cask from Duck Rabbit gets its freak on at The Fred Bar on Thursday night.
- Get ready for Father's Day! Deckard's is doing a tasting from 2:00 to 5:00 pm on Sunday, June 19th (that's Father's Day....duh!). For $35.00 a person you will get to taste fancy spirits, some rare beers, get a quality cigar to smoke (on the patio--NOT inside), hear some live music and chow down on some brats and ribs and other tasty morsels. So if dad likes beer, whiskey, cigars, rum, music and food off the grill, Deckard's has you covered. This is going to be set up as tasting stations. You and pops can stroll around at your leisure and taste whatever you like, as often as you like. I know for a fact that one of the beers available is so rare, the last bottles ON EARTH will be poured. You know that all dad really wants for Father's Day is to spend some time with you anyway, so this way you can do it in style.
- Monday, June 20th marks the first day that The Fred Bar is open seven days a week. We will have a firkin of Stone IPA dry-hopped with Simcoe. Yes, this cask was sent all the way to Stone to be filled for this event, and that is what they sent back. Pretty kick-ass, I know. Now go throw some cold water on the nearest beer geek, because I am sure that he or she is humping the furniture right about now. If you say the words "Stone", "firkin", "IPA" and "Simcoe", you can pretty much guarantee that a beer geek will go into helpless convulsions of uncontrollable humping. Try it some time. There's is no doubt that this cask is going to taste great though. We will be charging extra to hug or kiss it, though. If you want to get to second base (or more!) with this cask, you will have to wait until it is empty.
