We can’t believe we made it seven years! It seems like yesterday we opened with a bunch of keg boxes and buffalo quail wings on the menu. What? I know, it was a crazy time.
Every year we try to get a little bit better. This year we started making our own burger buns, brioche, naan and pretzels!
We started cleaning our own beer lines a while ago, but this year we got serious and stopped letting anyone else do it!
But it isn’t always about change, we still have four fabulous original employees! Along with many more that have been more more than 5 years! And man do we love that.
The anniversary bash is Saturday, September 12th. We will have an epic draft list for opening at 11am. The first 100 guests get a great gift! So come early and plan to stay late!
This year we will also feature an Oatmeal Beer Brunch on the 13th after the big party. Tons of Oatmeal and brunch appropriate beers (Donut Break, anyone?)

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!
