Always an awesome time, Saturday we will be celebrating 6 years!
Stay tuned for fun pictures of that day!
So Nick and I recently had the luxury of visiting Portland, Oregon for a week. I had only heard of this legendary beer city before, this was my first visit. Here is my list of super cool things about Portland’s beer scene.
1. Breweries can sell directly to the customer. So you can drink delish beer at Hair of the Dog, Cascade or Deschutes and then walk out with a bottle to enjoy later.
2. Bars are not required to serve food. This allows them to focus simply on awesome beer.
3. You can bicycle to most places in the city! That means way less risk of people drinking and driving.
If Atlanta’s law’s and streets were to change a bit we too could be a beer city just as awesome as Portland. After all with Orpheus opening just off the Beltline and more awesome breweries on the way, before you know it there will be a brewery in everyone’s hood!
PS. If you’re pinball wizard like me, check out Ground Kontrol in the Pearl District of Portland, one of the most epic selections of pinball games! Come on Joystick, take it up a notch!

It’s with a heavy heart that we say good bye to Dale Ralston, who had been with us through thick and thin for the last five and half years! Dale started as a server in September 2008 and became a manager after 3 months. She has kept our spirits high and our sides hurting with her fabulous sense of humor. She is the artist behind our chalkboards and email newsletters. Dale will be greatly missed at The Porter Beer Bar.
The only thing keeping us from crying is that Dale is leaving to open her very own awesome bakery called La Calavera with her husband, Eric Arillo. It will be at 747 East College Avenue near Avondale in Decatur! They are shooting to open in March, but keep upto date with their fabulous website: http://lacalaverabakery.wordpress.com/
Dale and Eric (who is also the baker) have been selling bread at local farmers markets for two years now and are ready to get serious with their very own storefront. We wish them the best of luck!
