Attention beer and prix fixe menu lovers: In case you have not taken advantage of it yet, there are still three more days left of Atlanta Beer Week to go.
I’m not one to usually get too caught up in all of the “weeks”, usually designed to give new diners a chance for an introduction to a specific neighborhood with affordable and approachable prix fixe menus. However, Atlanta Beer Week is a metro-area wide collaboration between restaurants, watering holes, growler bars, and breweries from around the southeast and the world.
With the big upswing in new Georgia-based breweries, featured heavily in the ABW line-up this week, and Sweetwater’s continual march to world craft dominance, Atlanta’s beer culture has blossomed in the last few years. The AJC’s Bob Townsend gave a great preview of this year’s Beer Week over on the Drink blog.
So, even though more than half of the week has passed you by, there are still plenty of events to attend inside and outside the perimeter, and plenty thirsts to quench. Here are a few of the remaining upcoming features, and you can find the full schedule on ABW’s website here.
Vintage Great Divide Night, Taco Mac (East Roswell) – 10/24
Epic Beer and Cheese Pairing!, The Porter Beer Bar – 10/25
Sweetwater 15th Anniversary Ale Tapping, Mellow Mushroom (Brookhaven) – 10/26
Inman Park Beer Chase, 5K and Beer Festival, Inman Park – 10/27
